Frequently Asked Questions
Adoption is not a choice any woman makes lightly. However, when you have an unplanned pregnancy, adoption can certainly be a wonderful option for you and your unborn child.

The books discuss why the family wants to adopt and provides a lot of information about the family and their lifestyle.

If you are not comfortable choosing the family, we can help with that as well.

Prospective adoptive parents are also required to discuss their backgrounds, childhoods, family of origins, and current support systems.
