Inter-Country Adoptions

We have had some wonderful couples outside of the United States recently contact us about a possible adoption plan. Unfortunately there are some limitations regarding inter-country adoptions as dictated by the Hague Adoption Convention. All prospective adoptive family homestudies outside of the US must be completed before April 1st 2008 before an adoptive family can be considered for placement.

Birthmothers Seek Our Help for Second Time

Our agency is currently working with 10 birthmothers this month who have come back for the second time. Many of these women commented that they feel "appreciated, cared for, safe, and secure" during their pregnancy. We are grateful to have an opportunity to provide quality services for these women and others like them through our outreach and birthmother programs.
