Can birth mothers change their minds about adoption?

Many birth mothers who place their children into adoption do so after unplanned pregnancies. Their pregnancies catch them by surprise and force them to ask some tough questions. Should they keep the baby? Abort it? Or place it for adoption? These questions are hard for anyone, especially for young women suddenly faced with the idea of becoming moms.
