The National Council for Adoption has released a new video series to promote adoption as an alternative, especially for teenagers who are not prepared to become parents.

“Adoption is a big decision. If you’re pregnant and unsure about your future, check out these real stories from birthmothers, adopted individuals, and adoptive parents,” the group says. “Sometimes choosing adoption is about being a good mother. Watch how one mother’s choice changed her child’s life for the better.”

“Give Miranda a minute to tell you why she chose adoption to provide the best life for her and her baby. Just 15, Miranda knew she needed a few more years of being a kid before she could even think about being a parent. So if you’re pregnant but you’re not ready to be a mom, we’re ready to help you choose adoption too. Because you’re not giving your baby away, you’re giving your baby a chance,” the group adds.
