I just found out I’m expecting a baby. This was unplanned and I don’t know what to do. I feel like abortion is my only option because my boyfriend doesn’t want the baby and I don’t think my parents will help or support me (I haven’t told them yet.) What can I do? Do I have options?
First let me say I know you must feel so scared and lonely and I’m so sorry. If you feel you need to speak with someone immediately, please call Becky Dyer, our center director, at 706-994-3391 any time day or night. We will be there to help and support you in your time of crisis by providing you with emotional and spiritual support, as well as physical resources that you need to raise a baby. We can also have information and resources here at the WEC about adoption should you decide to put your baby into the loving arms of an adoptive family. I know you must be dreading telling your family, and if you want, you can bring them into an appointment here at the center and we will help you tell them. Please consider parenting and adoption as alternatives to abortion, we believe that God loves your baby and God loves YOU and wants what is best for you (and so do we!) I would also like to add that for anyone reading this that has had an abortion in the past and needs someone to talk about it, this is a safe, non-judgmental place where you will find nothing but love and support. We hope you will let us come alongside you and help you through this time of crisis in your life.
