Teen Pregnancy: How to Choose Adoption in Colorado
Having a teen pregnancy can be scary. You may feel like you are alone and that there are no options for you. Your family values, education, and other life experiences are suddenly put on hold. However, know that adoption is an option if you do not want to raise the child. As a teenager, we can empathize with your situation and work with you in creating an adoption plan. If you are experiencing an unplanned teen pregnancy in Colorado, Adoption Choices of Colorado can help. We want to make the process simple and easy. There are many choices regarding adoption type and the services we provide.
Adoption Options to Choose From in Colorado
There are three options to choose from when it comes to the type of adoption you want.
- First is closed adoption, when you decide you do not want to communicate with the adoptive family or child due to your valid reasons. No communication of any kind is made between you or the adoptive family. You will remain anonymous and do not have to meet them. Once the child is born, you do not have to meet them in person to deliver them their child. We understand being anonymous may be important to you, so this adoption will respect your rights.
- The second is open adoption when you can communicate with the adoptive family and the child. You can know personal information about them such as their address. All forms of communication include calls on video or phone, visits, pictures and letters, and emails. Adoption Choices of Colorado will help make the arrangements and let open communication be continuous.
- The third is semi-open adoption. If you want to create boundaries of communication, then this type of adoption is good for you. Communication will still be through our adoption agencies in Denver, including but not limited to: letters, emails, video calls, phone calls, in-person visits, and pictures.

We want you to complete your education while having an adoption plan. Your adoption plan is made through your decisions and goes at your own pace. There is no rush. Your priorities are our own.
Suppose you have housing troubles, for example, if your family does not support your decision to put your child up for adoption. We can help provide housing and shelter for you to stay in while you are pregnant. Even after your child is born, we will continue to provide shelter until you can get a place of your own or can figure out living arrangements for yourself. Finding a comfortable and suitable environment for yourself during pregnancy is essential. There are opportunities to get financial support that can be geared toward finding a home for yourself through financial aid.
