On the contrary, sometimes the least selfish option, and the one that ensures the best chance of your child having a healthy, balanced childhood is adoption. Not everyone who finds themselves unexpectedly pregnant is in a great position to have that child. Considering adoption as a way to find a great home and a loving family for your unborn child is often times the most generous gift you can give, especially if the alternative is a life full of stress for you and the baby.
