We provide private, confidential counseling that is entirely judgment-free.
You will never be pressured into making a decision that you are not comfortable making. In addition to answering any questions you may have, we will also help dispel the myths surrounding adoption, and we will explain the legal process to you.
We are also able to offer financial support services based on your needs. We will help you find medical care if you do not already have a provider. Most importantly, we will guide you through the decision-making process and will help you choose a family should you decide that adoption is the best option for your child.
We have so many amazing and loving families just waiting, waiting to create a forever home for your child. He or she will be welcomed with open arms with any one of our waiting families who have been carefully vetted by our experienced staff. Our intensive screening process includes criminal background checks. We also check references and assess a family’s financial stability.
We recognize that choosing the family for your child is a serious step that requires a lot of support and sharing of information. We will help you identify what you feel is important in a family and will give you the opportunity to read family profiles to help you in your decision making. We will also help you participate in a “match meeting” with the adoptive family to help you feel assured about your decision.
The Voluntary Adoption Program places children in adoptive homes after the children’s birth parents have voluntarily made an adoption plan for them. This often is a newborn placed at birth but may also include older children.
You may choose to have an open adoption. Openness in adoption means creating and maintaining a relationship between birth parents and their adoptive families. It is important to understand its meaning and how it can work for all members of the adoption triad (the child, the birth parents, and the adoptive family).
