Call us. You probably wonder who will answer, what you should ask and how to describe your situation. We are a friendly, nonjudgmental bunch and your story won’t surprise us. You might be embarrassed, scared, confused or even angry. We are here to help make your life easier during this tough time. If you haven’t already, listen to the stories from eight of our birth moms. They will answer many of your questions and give you a sense of what your relationship can be like with us. It’s pretty special.
There is no pressure here. No judgments.
A coordinator can come see you quickly, if you’d like. Or we can simply send you a packet that includes lots of information and biographies of families who are available and looking to adopt. You have control in your adoption. You can even choose whether you want an “agency adoption experience” or a “private adoption experience” with just an attorney. You may just be looking for temporary help, like foster care, but it still doesn’t hurt to call and ask questions. If you don’t know what you want, that’s okay, too. We can handle whatever parts overwhelm you.
Our families welcome the sharing of pictures, letters, phone calls, emails, texts, visits, open adoption and closed adoption, whatever you want. We have some of the sweetest families around, and they are so grateful to be considered as parents to your baby or child.
How do you choose a family?
We have colorful biographies of each family and you can look at as many as you’d like. If one or more excite you, we can arrange a meeting or a talk on the phone. Your coordinator will handle everything…just tell her what you need. You can also visit featured families to see them right now.
All of our families are only available to you after they have passed a thorough home study that includes five criminal history checks, financial screens, a doctor’s physical and many referrals. These are stable, happy homes.
How do you pay for it all?
During your pregnancy, our agency is also able to help you with survival expenses. Your coordinator helps you look at your immediate needs, as well as your goals after you deliver. Indiana law allows us to help with housing, utilities, food, maternity clothes and transportation.
When was the last time you allowed yourself to dream…when you set a goal for yourself and thought someone could actually help you reach it? When was the last time you didn’t feel alone with your problems? This time can be about YOUR goals, YOUR life and YOUR future. Call us and see what your fresh start can be.
