I’m Pregnant

Expectant mamas, please hear us loud and clear: you are absolutely not alone. Whatever it may have been that lead you to this page, AdoptionWorks is readily available to walk alongside you in your pregnancy journey. Our first and foremost goal in serving you is to make sure you are fully aware of your options as you mentally and emotionally process your current situation. Consideration of these choices takes time and is incredibly personal. We hope to help you slow down and fully understand the pathways available to you.

AdoptionWorks is an adoption agency that exists within a larger nonprofit, ChristianWorks, that offers a variety of services to help you even if you decide that adoption is not the right choice for you and your child. Click here to learn more about BecomingMom, a ministry for families parenting children younger than 36 months of age. When working with AdoptionWorks, a Maternity Support Specialist will be with you throughout your entire adoption planning experience, from pregnancy, to delivery, and post-partum support.

Our onsite counseling center will also match you with a licensed counselor for free mental health counseling services if you choose to utilize those, as well. We also offer some material support and, if necessary, can assist you in seeking further financial or material support using our network of trusted resources. It is completely free to you to be a client of AdoptionWorks. As a fully licensed child placing agency, AdoptionWorks is not only guided by a Christ centered board, but also by state guidelines to ensure that we are following ethical procedures in the care of our expectant families and their children.

Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage you to communicate your desire to choose adoption with the biological father. Legally, communicating with the father is in the best interests of you, your child, and the prospective adoptive parents. Whether or not he is supportive of your decision, it always helps to know where he stands. If a birth father has not been informed of the decision to make an adoption plan, the legal process of the adoption plan could become difficult. More information about this issue will be addressed in your initial meeting with our Maternity Support Specialist.

Choosing to make an adoption plan means you are in control of choosing the family you place your child with. We will provide you with information regarding waiting adoptive families within our agency. If we do not have a family that meets your expectations hopes and dreams, we will look within our network of agencies to find other families to present to you. Our Maternity Support Specialist will assist you in making a plan for the time you are in the hospital for delivery and prepare you for the placement of your child into the adoptive home you choose. You will also have support in formulating an open adoption plan which outlines the type of contact you desire with the adoptive family you choose for your child.

AdoptionWorks is able to assist with costs directly associated with your pregnancy. Your Maternity Support Specialist will assist you in determining what expenses can and will be covered. Other options and resources for covering your expenses will be explored during your meetings with your Maternity Support Specialist.

Regardless of your age, you have the legal right to choose adoption for your child. AdoptionWorks is here to help you through the emotional difficulties an unplanned pregnancy can present. We will be happy to help you find a way to share this news with your parents, friends, or family. We have found that the support of family is a valuable component in the adoption process.
