Parenting Information

Is parenting the right choice for your unplanned pregnancy? Parenting can be challenging, but also very rewarding because you are caring for the physical, spiritual, emotional and mental development of your child from birth to adulthood. You are caring for this child for a lifetime.

When you are trying to make a decision regarding becoming a parent, it is possible that you may feel inadequate or just not ready. You may also feel thrilled or hopeful. Your emotions can be changing and endless. Additionally, your family and friends may be supportive during this time, or you could feel alone in your journey. Regardless, Azar House is here for you.

You don’t have to make this decision alone, but just know that in the end, it is YOUR choice. Some people feel pressured to make a decision they are not comfortable with and then regret it later. At Azar House, we are here to help. If you need a support system, then we have hearts to hear and hands to help.
