How Adoption Agencies Help Birth Mothers

This woman is wondering about how adoption agencies help birthmothers.

If you are an expectant mother or have already given birth, an unplanned pregnancy is difficult no matter what your situation. If parenting your child isn’t possible, we can help you. 

Through A Gift Of Hope Adoptions, our Adoption Counselors will help you determine if adoption is the right choice for you. Plus, we may be able to provide financial assistance for housing, medical expenses, and other pregnancy needs.

Emotional Assistance

We understand how hard adoption is for a birth mother. It’s one of the biggest decisions you will ever make in your life. All you want is what’s best for your baby.

Whether you have the support of family and friends or not, our Adoption Counselors will walk through the decision-making process with you. Only you know if placing your child for adoption is the right step to take. 

Your Future

We will talk about your current situation and your future hopes and dreams. Does it include parenting at this time? If so, we’ll support you and help find the resources you need. 

If making an adoption plan for your child is best, our counselors will walk you through the entire process from picking the adoptive family to finalizing the adoption. 

Our emotional assistance doesn’t end when the adoption is finalized. You need ongoing assurance and support, and we’ll be there to counsel and guide you.

Financial Assistance

Depending on your situation, there may be financial assistance too. Missouri law allows prospective birth mothers to receive financial assistance for adoption-related expenses during pregnancy. 

By working with a reputable adoption agency, a birth mother is never asked to pay for adoption services. If she is struggling financially, money is available for her living expenses during the adoption process. 

Living expenses may include:

  • Rent and utilities
  • Food
  • Medical expenses related to the pregnancy
  • Transportation to and from doctor’s appointments 
  • Maternity clothing
  • And more

How A Gift Of Hope Adoptions Can Help You

If you’ve discovered you are unexpectedly pregnant and not sure what to do, give us a call. It is always good to have someone other than a family member, partner, or friend talk through your situation with you. 

There’s no cost to talk and by contacting us, you’re not making a commitment to place your child for adoption. We want to give you as much information as possible to help you make the best decision for you, your baby, and the future.

Elizabeth and A Gift of Hope have been a touchstone during our adoption process. Having had issues with a previous agency – Elizabeth was a breath of fresh air! Reassuring, supportive and empathetic. We are so in love with our daughter and thank A Gift of Hope everyday for her!

AGOHA is a great agency that has provided amazing support and guidance though the adoption process. Would highly recommend AGOHA!

Our family has used their services for adoption. It’s wonderful dealing with someone who is looking out for the whole child, not just placing kids.

A Gift of Hope Adoptions is a Godsend for so many expectant young mothers. I completely recommend this organization for anyone interested in providing a wonderful life for their soon-to-be baby. This organization is also a Godsend for those of us who cannot have our own biological children.

I have recommended A Gift of Hope Adoptions to several mother’s considering adoptions for their babies. They have been so happy to feel supported and empowered through their decision.

“We adopted both of our sons through A Gift of Hope Adoptions. They helped us every step of the way and answered all the questions we had, and we had a lot! We would not be where we are today, with two busy boys in our family, if it wasn’t for A Gift of Hope.”

“We decided to use A Gift of Hope Adoptions because they are very personal and caring. The wait and uncertainty of adoption seemed daunting, but A Gift of Hope helped make the process go smoothly, and we couldn’t be happier with our beautiful child.”
