Is It Ever Too Late To Choose Adoption in New York?
A baby is growing inside of you and you haven’t decided what you are going to do yet. You feel time slipping away as each day brings you closer and closer to your due date. When you first discovered you were pregnant, you were too panicked to think straight. Then, when you got over the initial panic, you seriously considered keeping the baby. Maybe the baby kicked for the first time, or you just started shopping for things the baby will need. But now, you’re beginning to wonder if this is something you are prepared to do. Is it too late to choose adoption?
As you continue along with your pregnancy, it’s natural to realize how real everything is. The back and forth and panic is common. Choosing what to do with an unplanned pregnancy is not easy.

A responsible choice that puts your baby first; choosing adoption is commendable and brave no matter the stage of your pregnancy.
