Experts estimate that there are around 2 million hopeful adoptive families in the US who are waiting to adopt a baby. However, annually only around 20,000 babies are placed for adoption privately (meaning directly with an adoptive family through an agency or an attorney rather than through the foster care system.) Don’t worry, I’ll do the math for you.
This means there are 100 waiting adoptive families for every baby placed for adoption.
If you, or someone you know, is expecting a baby or has children that they are unable or unwilling to raise they have their choice of adoptive family for their child or children.
A Gift of Hope Adoptions will help that woman find the family that she thinks is best for her child, the type of family that shares her values and places importance on the things she deems important. She can select the family she wants, and if she doesn’t see a family on our list she likes we will help find that family; we can network nationwide to make sure she finds the best fit. She can also elect to keep in contact with the family after placement, which gives her peace of mind that her child is happy, healthy, and so very loved by so many people.
We are not here to talk her into or out of anything, just make sure that she knows what her real options are and how to access them. We will also help her by providing adoption counseling, case management, professional referrals, and other types of aid. We ensure that the adoptive families she considers are legally prepared to adopt by providing homestudies and other pertinent adoption services that will give the expectant mom or birth mom the peace of mind that any family she chooses is safe and healthy for her child.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis parenting situation please contact us. We would love to tell you about how modern adoption works, and give you resources to be the best mom you can be, whether that is making an adoption plan or a parenting plan.
