This factsheet gives you, the birth mother, information about counseling and adoption. It addresses many questions you might have.
     º The Impact of Adoption on Birth Parents
Placing a child for adoption is not an easy thing to do, not at the time of placement nor years later. How do you get through the experience, and how does it affect you later in life?
     º Adoption Stories Touch the Heart
As a society, let's begin to see birthmothers as they truly are: givers of life.

We also have a new and special area for young women pregnant and considering adoption, called "What to Expect When you are Expecting to Be a Birthmom." We offer a mentoring program where potential birthmothers are matched with already placed birthmothers for support and guidance.
