If you are considering adoption we will provide you with portfolios of ready adoptive couples. These home studies involve careful screening, education, and preparation for open adoption. These are couples who are unable to have a child and are very ready and anxious to start their family.
The placement of the baby comes when a birthmother is ready for this step, usually at the time of hospital discharge. If the adoptive couple lives out of our area, we request they spend several days post birth here to remain in contact and so birthparents can see their baby out of the hospital. We have learned that birthparent need for contact with their baby is very individual and deserves utmost respect for a smooth transition.
