You Could Choose to Parent

A birth mother (and father) make the decision to continue the pregnancy and care for their child. Choosing to parent may seem like an overwhelming task as you consider how it could affect your life. The good news is that there are resources and referrals in the community to help women and men be successful in their decision to parent.
