Birth Parents

We provide caring support when you need it most

Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be an overwhelming experience. You may be feeling scared, confused and even alone—but you’re not. We’re here to help you sort through your options and determine what’s best for you and your child. There are no wrong choices—only the choice that is ultimately right for you. And we’ll help you get there by offering caring, compassionate support and helpful resources every step of the way.

There are many adoption options available

If you’re considering adoption, you might have a preset idea of what this means for you and your child. That’s why it’s important to know that there are many options available. You can meet and choose an adoptive family, and determine how much future contact you will have with your child, such as updates, pictures, phone calls or visits. You can also opt for an open adoption that will allow you to have ongoing contact with your child after placement. The choice is yours, and you’ll have our full support no matter what you decide.

Love is at the heart of every adoption

Adoption is a loving plan for everyone involved. The combination of love from both you, the birth parent and from the adoptive parents will prove your child will never be alone. We promise that we will do what’s best for your child, as their adoptive parents welcome your child into their family. We work with caring, responsible families who we know will be sensitive to your needs and the choices that you make.

Our ongoing commitment to you

We want this time to be as stress-free as possible for you. That’s why we will do all we can to help you with pregnancy-related living expenses, housing, medical care, transportation, and legal services based on your needs and what is legally allowed. We will also provide counseling to help you evaluate your options so you can choose the one that is best for you and your child. And we’ll continue to offer counseling services for as long as you need. All services are free to birth parents.
