Witness the ups and downs of a teenage birth mom and her decision to pursue an open adoption with a local couple. This mini-documentary on open adoption explores perspectives of both the birth mother and the adoptive parents.
The Option of Adoption
Sadly, the option of adoption is typically the last of the three options that women in unplanned pregnancies consider. For the vast majority of women, the options are only two: terminate or carry to term. Adoption is usually perceived very negatively as "giving up" ones child whereas abortion is often perceived as nothing more than becoming "unpregnant."
We have distributed this documentary to pregnancy care centres all across Canada in hopes it will help distill some of the myths surrounding adoption and make it a very real viable option for more and more women.
