Can I talk to someone?
Yes! We can meet at a place convenient for you or you can come to our office. Call (303) 660-0277 to speak with a pregnancy counselor and schedule a free appointment. Trained counselors are on call 24 hours a day to serve you. You can also contact us here or text (303) 908-3083. If you have an after-hours emergency, please contact us by phone or text.
Do I have to make a decision before I contact you?
You do not have to decide about adoption before contacting Hope’s Promise. Our compassionate staff will come to you and will give you accurate information on all your options so you can make the best decision for you and your child. We are here to help you sort out your feelings and make a plan that is right for you. Our counseling services are free of charge and we can also help you with pregnancy related expenses, counseling and support throughout your pregnancy.
What if I decide to parent?
We understand adoption is not the right choice for everyone. If you choose to parent, we will guide you to community resources for help. By contacting Hope’s Promise, you are under no obligation to pursue adoption.
What is adoption?
Adoption is the legal transfer of parental rights and responsibilities from the birth parents to another individual or couple who is willing to assume them. It is a permanent decision.
There are many types of adoption:
Open adoption allows full identifying information to be shared between the birth family and adoptive family (last names, addresses, and phone numbers). Open adoption varies based on the degree of openness the birth and adoptive parents want but typically involves some level of contact. Most of our domestic adoptions are open.
Semi-open adoption means identifying information is not shared. Ongoing contact between the birth and adoptive families happens through a third party, such as an adoption agency.
Closed adoption means that no identifying information is shared between the birth and adoptive families, and they do not plan to meet or have any further contact.
Do I have to sign a contract to work with Hope’s Promise? Do I need a lawyer?
No. We do not believe it is ethical for any agency to request a contract. We are here to serve you and help you make the best decision for you and your child.
You do not need a lawyer because Colorado is an “agency state” which means adoption must occur through an adoption agency like Hope’s Promise. We will complete all legal steps necessary for your adoption. However, in the event of unusual or complicated legal issues, Hope’s Promise may also use the services of an attorney.
Can I see and hold my baby after he or she is born?
Absolutely! Whether you see and hold your baby in the hospital is completely up to you. We will work with the hospital staff to ensure that your wishes are met.
What services do you provide after my child is placed for adoption?
We believe adoption doesn’t end at the hospital. We provide lifetime counseling, referrals, and overall support to you and your family. We also offer a monthly support group for birth mothers called Knee to Knee.
If you have other questions, please give us a call at (303) 660-0277. We are here to support you.
If you are pregnant and considering your options, fill out this form and one of our counselors will contact you.
When should I see a doctor?
If you are experiencing early signs of pregnancy, we recommend you schedule an appointment with your doctor or visit a free clinic. At this appointment, they will determine your due date, provide resources for pregnancy, labor and delivery, and share important information regarding the effects of drug and alcohol usage during pregnancy. You will also be counseled about proper nutrition and prenatal care.
You can also visit a pregnancy center in your area for a free pregnancy test:
Can my baby be adopted if I’ve used drugs and/or alcohol?
Even if you have used drugs and alcohol, Hope’s Promise can help you make an adoption plan for your unborn child. We have many waiting families who are ready to parent a child who may have been affected by drugs and/or alcohol.
How do I know if becoming a parent is right for me?
What if I am considering abortion?
Before you choose abortion, please get accurate information on the medical procedures and long term physical and emotional effects. We would love to help you consider the options of parenting or adoption instead of abortion. Call us at 303-660-0277 for a free counseling appointment.
I don’t have medical insurance; can you help me?
Yes. If you do not have medical insurance we can help you submit a Medicaid application. If you are not eligible for Medicaid, and if you make an adoption plan, your medical expenses can be paid by the adoptive parents.
Can you help me with financial assistance?
Yes. In Colorado, we can help with pregnancy related expenses.
