Now may not be the time you want to hear those words. You want the best for your child, but you’re not ready or able to be a parent to your child at this time. You know you want to choose life for your baby. You have a wonderful alternative to parenting your child, and that is ...
You are a courageous and special woman, and our caring staff will support you with the loving and unselfish decision to place the well-being of your child first. This will be one of the most important choices you will ever make.
We will never pressure you to place your child. We are here to counsel with our clients and offer information for them to make their own best decision. Please feel free to contact us as soon as possible so that we can help you with prenatal care, support, counseling and other needs you may have.
There are many misunderstandings about adoption. No longer are birth parents expected to forget their child or just wonder for years how they are doing. You can help select and meet the adoptive parents.
There are many options for ongoing contact with the adoptive family and your child. These may include pictures, letters, videos, reports, gifts and visits. You can also choose to have a more closed adoption.
When the adoptee turns 18, search and reunion can be initiated by mutual voluntary consent. All adopted children are raised knowing about their birth-family, and their birthmother’s great love for them.
