Hope For Birth Mothers

As a caring counselor, my heart has ached for the many brave women who have shared their shock, pain, uncertainty, confusion and even anger with me after learning that they were unexpectedly pregnant. Perhaps you are not yet ready to be a parent right now, but this pregnancy is pressuring you to make decisions. You are not alone in all of this. We can provide choices and help you through this period of your life.

There are different ways to love your child. Sometimes the most wonderful thing that you could ever do for your child is to consider entrusting your baby to loving adoptive parents who will raise your child in a permanent family. Adoption is a noble option. Making the positive decision to adopt can make a happier and more stable future for both your child and you!

People who long to have a child will often call me to help them with the professional adoption home study assessment. Then my dear wife, Lynn, and I personally visit them for a 5 to 6 hour visit in order to carefully screen them. Before giving our approval, I try my very best to ensure that they will be good and kind parents who will raise their adopted child with unconditional love and total commitment. We verify that they have sufficient financial resources, a stable relationship and clear background checks.

Hope for Families can help you select a loving, financially secure family for your child. We will arrange to provide tangible and emotional support during your pregnancy and even through the transition period after the birth. We have professional counselors who truly care and provide confidential counseling services 24 hours a day. Our experienced and concerned staff understands your needs and will help you throughout your pregnancy.

Of course, all of our adoption services are free with no cost ever to you. Our social workers can assist you with living, housing and medical expenses. After the birth, they can even assist you with vocational training and continuing education so that you can begin to set new goals and rebuild your life.

Knowing all of your options is your first step. We can help you choose what type of adoption is right for you. Open adoption allows you to remain in contact with your child and the adoptive family you have selected. A confidential adoption, on the other hand, protects your anonymity. Each adoption plan is unique, just like you. You choose from loving, prescreened adoptive families of every race and faith. You can choose a family who lives in your area or one from out of state. Our professional pre-screening process will ensure that your child will be safe, provided for and loved.

Hope for Families wants to be a blessing to you and your child, and also to the many adopting families who have shared their desire to have children to love and begin their own forever family. May you be their answer to their prayers. Adoption of a baby is the best gift you could ever give another person. Adoption is an act of love and bravery, of faith and caring for your child.
