Where do I go If I have an Unplanned Pregnancy in Texas?
No matter how hard you try to prepare for every possible situation, something always seems to come up to mess up those plans. When you’re faced with an unplanned pregnancy, you may feel a lot of pressure to make a decision. You could choose to continue with the pregnancy and raise the child by yourself or with your partner. If need be, you may also choose to terminate the pregnancy. Finally, you could choose to continue your pregnancy and put your baby up for adoption. Adoption Choices of Texas wants you to make the best decision for your own situation. No matter what you choose to do, we want to provide you with information and services in our adoption agencies in Texas.
Visit Adoption Agencies in Texas

No matter your experience, we can offer advice and information to anybody free of cost. Visiting us doesn’t mean you are forced to put your baby up for adoption. In an initial visit or initial call to our phone number, we just want to make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision.
Unplanned Pregnancy? Choosing to Raise your Children
An unplanned pregnancy may be unexpected, but you can choose to raise the child yourself. If you feel you are able to take care of the child or have a family to help you raise them, this could be a great option for you. Of course, parenthood isn’t easy. There are plenty of expenses involved with raising a child. Especially if you’re a single parent, it may be difficult to do it all on your own.
Would you be willing to apply for government assistance programs? What about support from family members? Can you live with your partner? These are all good questions to ask when considering parenthood. Our counselors are always willing to help you choose unwanted pregnancy options. If you think you are ready to be a parent, then do what you think is best. If not, there are still other options available.
Terminating an Unplanned Pregnancy
If you’re in a difficult situation or worry about being physically able to bring your child to term, then terminating your pregnancy remains an option for some parents. In Texas specifically, an abortion may not be easy to obtain. Several laws limit funding for abortions, and two visits to a clinic are required to get an abortion: one to perform an ultrasound and another to terminate the pregnancy. The pregnancy must also be within the first 20 weeks in order to have an abortion. This is also the most expensive of the options. Most healthcare providers don’t cover the costs of an abortion. Abortions remain a safe a common procedure, but only you can choose if it the right choice for you.
Putting your Baby up for Adoption
If you’re looking for unplanned pregnancy help, Adoption Choices of Texas would love to offer our services to you.

Meet the author: Joshua Boulet is an aspiring journalist and writer with a particular fondness for research and social sciences. He loves music, writing, reading, video games and most art, and anything creative he can get his hands on. Boulet believes that there’s too much good stuff out there and not enough time to see it all. He grew up on video games: the classic Sonic the Hedgehog games, Mario Kart, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and Legend of Zelda. The music of rhythm games led him to an interest in that, and the investigative journalism of Jason Schreier inspired him to discover the importance of journalism as an industry. That interest in developers’ lives led him to an interest in social justice and how the world could maybe be made into a better place. “All this to say, there is certainly a line I can draw between me obsessively playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and me interviewing my sociology professor about how to read academic articles. Those surprising through lines fascinate me all the same. At my best, I’m a person who gets to be constantly fascinated by the lives and work of other people.” His favorite quote is from his favorite jazz musician: “A genius is the one most like himself” – Thelonious Monk.
