Aside from parenthood and abortion, adoption provides another option for pregnant teens. If you choose to put your child up for adoption, there are different types of adoptions available to you.
Open adoptions allow the birth parent the opportunity to visit the child and be a part of his or her life. Closed adoptions keep the birth parent's identity confidential, meaning you do not have a relationship with the child.
People choose to have an open or closed adoption for different reasons. To help you make this important decision, find out as much as you can from several different adoption agencies.
There are many resources available on the Internet that provide information about adoption agencies. However, be careful. Many "crisis pregnancy centers" may not present you with all of the options because of their own agendas.
Do your research to make the best decision for you.
