Birthmother Q&A

“I couldn’t have found a better family for my child. I love all the pictures. I’m so blessed they share his life with me.” — Tanisha, a birth mom

Adoptive Parents

Choosing a Family

You will have the opportunity to work with your adoption counselor in selecting a family that meets the special needs of you and your child. Families are also generally available to meet you once you select their profile. It is YOUR CHOICE if you want to meet them or not. Adoptive families are carefully screened and must pass extensive background checks, medical exams and interviews before being allowed to adopt. We make sure homes are safe and families are really ready for the responsibility of being adoptive parents. CALL or TEXT our confidental line (501) 442-8170 to learn more or set an appointment to review our adoptive family profiles. If you call after hours, someone will respond as soon as possible.

Role and Rights

The Baby's Father

All situations are different, but if the father is supportive and wants to be involved in the adoption process we encourage it. We are happy to work with him as well. If not, we will work with you and our attorney to determine the father’s rights in your situation. Call us to learn more.

Don't Believe What You've Heard

Contact After Adoption

There are many misunderstandings about adoption. No longer are birth parents expected to forget their child or just wonder for years how they are doing. There are many options for ongoing contact with the adoptive family and your child. These may include pictures, letters, videos, reports, gifts and visits. You can also choose to have a more closed adoption. When the adoptee turns 18, search and reunion can be initiated by mutual voluntary consent. All adopted children are raised knowing about their birth family and their birthmother’s great love for them.
