If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, the thought of parenting may seem overwhelming. Perhaps you never even gave it a thought, or parenting was something for “down the road.” Becoming a parent is a huge step, but it is possible and we have the resources to help you. You can choose to parent your child. Let us show you how you can be successful.
You may be thinking:
- “I don’t have the money to be a parent.”
- “I’m too young to be a mom.”
- “How can I possibly be a parent when I’m still in school?”
- “Who’s going to watch my baby while I work?”
We get it. These are legitimate thoughts. No matter your age, financial situation, or background, parenting can be difficult, but it can also be very rewarding. It is a brave and unselfish choice.
