Adoption

Adoption Choices

If you are considering making an adoption plan, we are here for you with support and encouragement.

All of our services are free and confidential. 

 

We can help you explore the options available to you from the type of plan to the type of family you want your child to have. Adoption plans are typically categorized as:

  • open

  • semi-open

  • closed
     

When a birth mom makes an adoption
plan, she and the birth father can both choose a family for the child and choose their own future.

About Adoption

Adoption is not something suitable for every situation and person, but it is an option to consider during an unexpected pregnancy. New Hope Family Services can help by providing you with the information you need in a safe, supportive environment free from any persuasion or judgment. 

 

After we confirm your pregnancy, we can talk about the various types of adoptions, your legal rights, and we can provide referrals to agencies and adoption attorneys. In some cases, financial assistance for medical and living expenses is available for the birth mother, along with many other benefits.

 I chose adoption for my baby not because I didn't want her, but because I love her.
