Gladney understands that being the father in an unplanned pregnancy is not easy. It is hard knowing that decisions are not entirely up to you and not knowing the best way to help. This is why Gladney offers options counselors to expectant birth fathers as well as birth mothers. You can discuss your questions and concerns with the counselor and also find out how to best support the expectant mother through the pregnancy and in making the best decision for your child.
Birth fathers can also talk to Gladney’s legal team about the options available for the birth father as well as the legal issues surrounding adoption. In addition, the father can take part in one-on-one counseling as well as support groups such as the “Family Loving Decisions Workshop”. These sessions can help you and other family members work through the adoption process during the pregnancy, after the birth, and throughout life, if needed.
Unplanned pregnancies and the process of adoption are overwhelming and stressful. Gladney wants you to know that you are not alone and that we are here to help or even just listen, even if you aren't the one pregnant.
