Our first priority is to give you accurate information about your options and adoption. You do not need to have decided on making an adoption plan before you call us. The following is a summary of some of the many decisions you will face as you consider the option of adoption.
Options and Relinquishment Counseling
Relinquishment counseling from a licensed adoption agency is required in the state of Colorado. The purpose of this is to protect you and your rights. During this initial counseling process, our job is to help you understand your options and support you in making a healthy, informed decision about your future and the future of your child. Our confidential, one-on-one counseling is intended to support you through this life changing and emotional process.
Choosing to make an adoption plan helps many women regain stability in their personal lives and creates a positive future for their child. Our friendly and compassionate counselors will take the time to listen to your concerns in a safe, non-judgmental environment. We will assist you with the legal process, with selecting an adoptive family and with choosing the amount of contact you would desire to have with your chosen adoptive family. Your counselor will help you determine if you are eligible for financial assistance and can connect you with community resources for transportation, housing, and Medicaid. And we’re here for you as long as you need us for support after placement!
We understand that adoption is not the right choice for everyone. If you decide to parent, we want you to become the best parent you can be! Let us help with counseling and referrals to necessary support services in the community.
Selecting an Adoptive Family
Once you feel ready to select an adoptive family, your counselor will help you through this process. We will help you create the best plan for you, the prospective adoptive family, and most importantly, your child. Many birth families choose to have an open adoption. If you are interested in open adoption, we will help you determine what the open adoption relationship could be like. You can see some of our waiting families here…
Open adoption is very common today. An open adoption means that identifying information is shared between the birth family and the selected adoptive family, and there is direct communication between the birth family and adoptive family. This is usually done by exchanging letters, pictures, and updates, as well as personal visits. The frequency of contact and type of contact is determined by the birth family and the adoptive family together. No two adoptions are the same. Our goal is to develop relationships in a way that benefits everyone involved. Your counselor will help you and the adoptive family determine what is best for you.
