Answers to some common questions:

We know you want what’s best for your child, which is why you’re considering adoption. Like you, we believe children should be loved and nurtured in the best environment possible. Sometimes that’s with a birth mother, and sometimes with an adoptive family. Let us help you figure you what’s best for you and your child.

1.) What does it cost me to place my child for adoption?

A birth or expectant mother should never be asked to pay for adoption services. At A Gift of Hope Adoptions, our services are ALWAYS FREE to you.

2.) Will I still have parental rights after the adoption?

Placing your child for adoption does not mean you are “co-parenting.” Legal adoptions permanently transfer all rights and responsibilities from the birth parent(s) to the adoptive family, but you will always be a part of your child’s life story.

3.) What if the birth father is no longer in the picture?

You can still pursue an adoption plan even if the birth father is uninvolved. A birth father’s rights are complex and vary on a case-by-case basis.

4.) Am I able to stay in touch with my child?

Talk to us about the level of contact you desire, and we’ll help locate the right family for you.

5.) Do you only handle adoptions of newborns?

A Gift of Hope Adoptions also assists women who are no longer pregnant and wish to place their older children. We know circumstances change, and sometimes your ability to care for a young child is difficult.

6.) What if I change my mind?

Our counselors will spend time with you making sure you have thoroughly thought through adoption. At any point before the birth of your child, you are free to change your mind. States vary on the amount of time you are given after the baby’s birth.

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.”
