Advice for pregnant teens

When a teenager or a young woman finds herself pregnant and faced with the decision of whether or not to terminate the pregnancy, parent the baby, or place the baby for adoption, it's important for her to have a support system to help her through the process because it's a very difficult process, and she needs to educate herself about her options and the ramifications of those options. Since there are myths out there about adoption, she may see adoption as just giving the baby away. But with open adoption, she's placing the baby into a loving home and she can be part of that child's life, which is a key aspect to having the openness, is that she can maintain a connection with the baby and the family that she places the baby with.
