Birth MotherYou’re pregnant. An unplanned pregnancy can bring so many different emotions… shock, fear, alarm, embarrassment or guilt. It also brings the need to make some vitally important decisions!


There are many questions you must consider.

  • What do I want to do in the future? What would I like to be doing one year from now? Five years from now?
  • Can I rely on someone to support me?
  • Do I want to be a parent now? Am I ready to take care of a baby 24 hours a day, seven days a week?
  • Could I support myself and my child?
  • How do I feel about adoption?
  • Most importantly, what is the best choice for my child at this time?

Adoption is a sacrifice a mother makes only if she believes it is the best choice for her child; it is not an easy choice. Making an adoption plan for your baby is one of the toughest things you will ever do.

In Alberta, there are three adoption choices available:

  1. Place the baby through Alberta Human Services
  2. Place the baby using the services of a licensed agency such as Christian Adoption Services.
  3. Place the baby directly with a friend or family member you know well and trust.
