Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be difficult – especially if you do not know where to turn. But did you know there’s an agency that’s been around since 1965 – an agency that specializes in working with young women just like you?
New Hope Family Services is a not-for-profit Christian agency authorized to provide birthparent services throughout New York State. And at New Hope, we don’t just send you information through the mail. We’re happy to come out and meet with you in a comfortable location of your choice. We walk with you through the journey of your pregnancy, as you consider your options and make the best possible plan for your child, whether it be parenting or adoption.
As a birthparent you can choose a family for your baby by viewing profiles of our waiting families. A profile is a large album which the family makes about themselves. It contains information and pictures about them – their home and their neighborhood. You will learn about their educational background, what kind of jobs they hold, their hobbies and interests, and their faith. All of New Hope’s waiting families have met the pre-adoptive requirements of the State of New York and have been cleared through the necessary clearances. We’re confident we have a family that will be just what you’re looking for.
At New Hope, you get to choose how much openness you want. You can receive letters and pictures from the adoptive family for as long as 18 years. What’s more, if you so desire, you’ll have the opportunity to meet the adoptive family of your choice and get to know them personally. Some birthparents choose to continue meeting once or twice a year after placement.
Adoption allows you to:
- Choose to give your child the gift of life.
- Choose to take responsibility for your child by making a loving plan.
- Choose a family who is ready and waiting to parent.
We want you to be completely at peace with your decision and comfortable with the plan you have made. Postplacement Counseling will be provided to you for as long as you need it. We’re happy to help you. Adoption is a loving choice – that choice is yours.
