If this workbook is in your hands, you are probably pregnant and not sure what to do. You’re in the right place. Read on. The people who put together this book support you no matter what you choose. We have tried to give you a realistic picture of all the choices you can make–abortion, adoption, and being a parent. You will find exercises to help you make the best decision for you. We have also included information and thoughts on Religion and Spirituality, Fetal Development, and What Can Harm A Pregnancy. There is a special section called Taking Care of Yourself which includes information on morning sickness, birth control, protecting your fertility, and healthy sexuality.

If you are having a hard time with your decision, you may think you can never feel good about your choice. We have found that women who are willing to explore what they think and how they feel can come to a peaceful resolution. To get there, you must be willing to work at it. So, get out your crayons, sharpen your pencils, and do some “homework.” It may be the most important homework you ever do. Remember to listen to your heart and your own voice to find the right answer for you. Get some help if you need it.
