    Explore the option of adoption.

    open adoption

    Open Adoption is a form of adoption in which the biological and adoptive families have access to varying degrees of each other’s personal information. Open adoptions are relatively common and provide the most contact between the birth mother and the adoptive family. It’s common for the adoptive family and the birth mother to meet in person, send pictures and letters, and even celebrate special moments together.

    POWER

    You choose the adoptive parents, decide the post-adoption contact, and control the hospital environment.

    Your voice, your choices. You decide how involved your advocate is – from walking alongside you during pregnancy, doctor visits, during the hospital stay, and post-open adoption. You call the shots even with the agency.

    HOPE

    Open adoption replaces the “I wonder?” attached to abortion and foster care, with the permanency of “I know!” through phone calls, pictures, letters, and visits as designed by you.

    You receive an advocate who will meet with you face-to-face, whose purpose is to work freely for you. The advocate meets adoptive parents when you do. She works to protect your hope, demanding your voice is heard.

    LOVE

    Open adoption brings love to both of you through a forever connection with your child and the adoptive parents.

    Open adoption is a hard decision, based solely on love. Your advocate will be present if you wish, especially after you leave the hospital. We will walk alongside you before, during, and after the adoption process.

    FAMILY

    Choosing to extend your family through open adoption gives you and the adoptive family one purpose: being attached forever to love your child unconditionally.

    Available 24/7, physically and emotionally present, ready to help and committed to supporting you, even years down the road.
