What Birth Mothers Have to Say About Us:
The following quotes were taken from Thank You notes sent to our Case Managers:
Q: “How do I give my baby up for adoption?”
A: Adoption is not giving up on a child. It’s a selfless act of love for the child. Keep on reading to learn more.
One of the questions that we often hear from individuals facing an unplanned pregnancy is “how do I put my baby up for adoption?” When an expectant mother is considering adoption for their child, it is much more than just how to “give baby up for adoption“. It means making an adoption plan for her child, and it means a lot of courage and incredible sacrifice on her part. By reading and selecting approved adoptive family profiles, expectant parents are able to review potential adoptive parents who are ready, willing and able to adopt a child. By selecting a family, the pregnant woman/couple is in control of who will adopt the baby. She is not “giving up her baby”, she is choosing a life she dreams for her baby.

Friends in Adoption Core Values Are:
"Do I get to choose the adoptive parents?"
" I would really like to talk or meet with the family I might choose. Can we set that up?"
"What happens at the hospital when I give birth?"
"I think counseling might help me decide what I want to do regarding this pregnancy. But it is so stressful. Can FIA Help Me?"
