Because no two situations are the same our services are highly individualized to meet your needs.  As you look ahead to your future we will assist you in making decisions that enable you to fulfill your hopes, dreams, and goals for you and your baby.


Choose & meet your child’s adoptive family
You can choose the adoptive family by looking through information lovingly prepared by pre-approved couples.  You can also meet the adoptive family, which enables you to get to know them on a personal level.  The best adoptions are based on mutual trust and respect between the birth and adoptive parents.


Design the level of openness in your adoption
You can request letters and pictures of your child for 18 years through a written design that is agreed upon by the adoptive family. Communication is facilitated through the agency. You can also request pre-delivery and post delivery meetings with the adoptive family.


Your baby will be placed with the adoptive family at the time of hospital discharge
When the baby is medically ready to leave the hospital, he or she can be placed directly into the home of the adoptive family. You decide the amount of contact you have with your baby while you are in the hospital.

 

 

Free medical and legal services
If you do not have any medical insurance we can provide you with information on how to obtain coverage while you are pregnant. It is also legal in Pennsylvania for adoptive parents to pay for any medical care that you receive during your pregnancy and delivery. We will provide legal representation for you free of charge.
