"I'm Pregnant."

I'm Pregnant.

Parents dream of hearing their daughters say those words one day. But when the timing is wrong, the dream can suddenly feel like a nightmare. You want to be supportive, but you’re struggling with your own emotions, like fear and disappointment, and even the loss of a dream. You want the best for your daughter’s life, but in this scenario, you’re not sure what to do. So take your time, and consider what’s best for both your daughter and her baby.

Your daughter has choices, and she’s not alone. Neither are you. You or your daughter can call a Gladney options counselor right now at 800.452.3639 to discuss your fears and concerns, as well as your options. Here are a few ways to support your daughter as she weighs her options:

  • Listen and allow her to share her feelings openly.
  • Be careful to share your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental way.
  • Be realistic in evaluating her readiness to parent a child.
  • Let her know that you believe in her.
