Questions & Answers

What do I do first?

Call us toll free at 1-877-723-6789. We will take some basic information from you and then outline steps to begin the adoption process. Don’t worry, the call is free, everything we discuss is private, and there is no obligation or commitment on your part.

Where are you located?

Our office is located in Maine, but we work with expectant mothers from all over the country. We rely on a network of social workers, lawyers, hospitals and other professionals in other states who help facilitate the adoption.

Does anyone have to know about my pregnancy?

Only if you choose to tell them. Any information that you share with us is kept completely confidential.

What about the birth father?

If he knows about your pregnancy and supports your adoption decision, the birth father can be involved in the process as much as you would like him to be. If he either doesn’t know you’re pregnant, or knows but does not support your choice, an attorney will be provided - at no cost to you - to work on terminating the birth father’s rights.

I’m worried about money. Can you help?

Yes, we can offer financial support. The adoptive family you choose may pay for some of your living expenses such as rent, food, medical costs, transportation and maternity clothes. The amount may vary depending on what state you live in.

When can I speak to someone at your office?

You can reach us any time – day or evening – at this toll free number: 1-877-723-6789. You can also email us anytime and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

Can I get counseling?

Yes, we provide counseling at no cost to you. Your adoptive family will pay for your counseling fees.

What if I need to move?

If your current living situation is not working out for you, we can assist you when you relocate with rent, utilities, and travel costs.

Can I choose my adoptive parents?

Yes. You can begin by reviewing the Waiting Parents profiles on this web site. Once you have made a choice, we will set up a conference call between you, the adopting parents, and our agency. If you are sure of your choice, then you will be “matched” with that family.

What happens after I have chosen my family?

Once you are matched with a family, you can continue to keep in touch with our office and with the adopting parents if you want to. Your case manager will also be available to help you with your adoption plan. It’s important that you feel well and strong, so you’ll take care of yourself by seeing your doctor regularly. As your delivery date approaches, you’ll meet with an attorney or social worker to go over the paperwork you will sign when the baby is born.

What happens at the hospital?

When you go into labor, you will call your case manager and your adoptive family. Your adoptive family will come to the hospital to meet you. If you need a ride to the hospital, we can make prior arrangements for you. After the baby is born, you will most likely remain in the hospital for 12-24 hours. The hospital social worker will meet with you to sign the birth certificate and any hospital forms. If you don’t have a ride home, we’ll arrange it. The baby will go home with the adopting parents right from the hospital.
