Open Adoptions

Although there are many approaches to adoption today, we recommend the open adoption process for expectant birth mothers. In open adoption, you choose the family you think would be best for your child. You get to know them, and agree with them regarding the level of ongoing relationship you would like to maintain with the adoptive family. You also have the opportunity to describe the family that you think would provide the ideal home for your child. We will work with you to find the right adoptive family for your child.

We encourage you to develop a relationship during your pregnancy with the family that you've chosen to trust with your child's future. This helps ensure that your decision to place your baby for adoption will be strengthened and affirmed as time passes.

The personal and flexible nature of open adoption can also help you get access to resources that can help you handle the practical and financial challenges of pregnancy as a single woman, no matter what your circumstances. The adopting parents will pay for the legal aspects of the adoption. In California, they can pay for other pregnancy related services and needs as well, including counseling, medical care, and other expenses.

The decision to place your unborn child for adoption is a very serious one. That is why we stress the importance of education and counseling for all birth mothers. We want to make sure that your decision to participate in the open adoption process reflects your own choice and your understanding of your own best interests, as well as your hopes and concerns for your child.
