NEW: Pittsburgh Perinatal Comfort Care at Choices Pregnancy
Anticipating the birth of a baby is typically a time of great joy and excitement, but joy quickly turns to heartache when
parents receive the unexpected news that their unborn baby has a serious medical condition that may result in death.
Despite the diagnosis, many parents choose to continue their pregnancy, but in doing so find themselves with limited
support, resources and guidance. For these parents, there are no easy answers and navigating the many decisions
unique to their circumstances can become overwhelming."

“I found that I was pregnant in May 2002. I was 21,
and not in a healthy relationship with the baby's father. I was scared
and wasn’t sure what to do.
"I discussed various ideas with my parents and we all
agreed that adoption would be the best option for both me and the baby.
I was about to graduate from college and knew I couldn’t support my baby
with everything she would need. I also knew it would not be fair for my
baby to grow without the support of two loving parents.
"My sister and I were both adopted as infants and our
adoptive parents gave us a wonderful and loving home.
I wanted to give my baby the same opportunity.
Adoption was a hard decision to make, especially after my baby
was born. But I knew it was
the most loving decision to make. I read profiles of perspective
adoptive couples and I met the couple I had chosen and asked them
questions about how they would raise my baby.
I was then able to meet them again at the agency and hand them my
baby in person. It was sad
to say goodbye to my baby but the joy of knowing what a good life I was
giving her made those sad feelings go away.
"I hope mothers make the right decision for them and
their baby. No matter how hard it is to give your baby up for adoption,
in the long run, it is a very rewarding decision to give your baby hope
for a very loving and blessed life.”
