Connecting Birth Mothers and Adoptive Families
If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy or hardship, you may be considering adoption. The benefits of adoption for the birth mother and adopted child are significant.
Today’s adoption statistics show that 99 percent of adopted children know they were adopted and over 90 percent feel positive about their adoption and being raised by loving, adoptive parents. In addition, birth mothers have the possibility of remaining part of their children’s lives with options such as semi-open or open adoptions.
