Pregnancy Counseling

One of our counselors will meet you at the location of your choosing for free and confidential options counseling. Although each woman's circumstances are unique, most women facing an unplanned pregnancy have primarily three options. We'll help you explore each of them so you can decide which feels right for you.

Adoption

You can choose a loving family in Illinois to parent your child. Every adoption is different and you can choose the level of openness that you are comfortable with.

Considering Adoption?
Ask yourself:

  • What are my hopes and dreams for my child?
  • Do I feel pressured to choose adoption?
  • What kind of adoptive family would I want?
  • Would I like to stay in contact with my child?
