If you decide adoption is the best option for you and your child, EVOLVE will assist you through every step of the process. Adoption planning services can include counseling on adoption related issues, help in finding an adoptive family, developing a plan for openness and on-going contact, facilitating the legal paperwork and process, and post-adoption support.
EVOLVE Families: We help prepare families who are ready, able, and excited to grow their family through adoption. You can see some of our families who are waiting on our Waiting Families webpage.
Open Adoptions: All EVOLVE families agree to the option of an open adoption. Open adoption means the adoptive and birth families share identifying information and have open communication before, during, and after the baby is born. In most cases, contact, including phone calls, texts, emails and visits, may continue as agreed upon by adoptive and birth families. There can be different levels of openness depending on your preferences.
There are many benefits to an Open Adoption. Open Adoption provides birth parents a sense of peace, knowing their child is safe and loved. Children benefit from openness because many of their questions regarding their adoption and family history can be answered. Sharing information also helps the adoptive family tell the child the story of their adoption accurately, as well as knowing medical and genetic information about the child. All parties benefit from developing these connections and relationships.
