ADOPTION = BRAVE LOVE
When you visit Community Pregnancy Clinics, you will meet with one of our nurses or mentors to discuss your personal situation. Our mentors have tools and resources to help you explore all of your pregnancy options, including adoption. Many clients describe their mentor as one who listens without judgment and asks thoughtful questions to help you make a decision that is best for you and your child. You can meet with us for decision making counseling at one of our offices or a coffee shop or other location that is convenient for you and meet as often as needed. All of our services are free.
What does the Adoption Process look like?
- If you haven’t already, the first step is to meet with one of our mentors to learn about the adoption process and get all of your adoption questions answered.
- Continue meeting with one of our mentors as often as you want until you feel confident in your pregnancy decision.
- If you choose adoption, your mentor will help you determine what you want your adoption plan to look like and identify your preferences for an adoptive family. Adoption is a journey and there is a lot to think about. We will talk with you about the process and help you through the steps of adoption. In addition, you can talk with other women who have made adoption plans for their children.
- Explore waiting families that fit what you are looking for based on what’s important to you in an adoptive family, including family size, location, or lifestyle choices. You will read through detailed profiles of families that match your preferences to get an idea of who they are, why they are adopting, and what their lifestyle looks like.
- Select an adoptive family. You can choose to meet a family or two to confirm your choice in an adoptive family. We’ll help you identify questions you may want to ask and we’ll facilitate the meeting for you.
