Adoption

Many people have a misleading idea of adoption. It takes a lot of courage and maturity to consider this option and you are NOT a bad person for considering an adoption plan. You are providing your baby a chance at life for which you may not be able to fulfill right now.

Questions you might ask about adoption:

  1. Can I choose a family for my baby?
  2. Can I learn more about option adoption?
  3. Will my child know about me?
  4. Does the birth father have any rights?
  5. Can my child search for me one day?
  6. Will this be a financial burden to me?

Once again we at the Center want you to have the answers to all questions prior to making any decision.

The birth mother can have :

  • a peace of mind knowing her baby has been placed in a home with parents of her choice
  • an open adoption
  • on-going post adoption support
