I Gave Birth

Are You Feeling Overwhelmed?

Whether this is your first baby or you are caring for others, you understand the responsibility of parenting. It can be overwhelming, especially if you are feeling alone.

Maybe a parent or friend said, “I’ll be there for you.” And you now realize that isn’t going to happen. Or, the baby’s father said he would help you financially, but he’s nowhere to be found. Circumstances change. Are you wondering what to do?

Finding The Best Solution

It doesn’t matter if you are still in the hospital or already home. It’s never too late to change plans. You are in control. No one should pressure or manipulate you into choosing anything other than what is best for you, this child, and your future. The decision is yours.

We want to help you find the best solution. If your choice is to parent, we’ll help you with referrals for housing, food, medical care, and more. If you choose to make an adoption plan, we will walk you through every step of the process and beyond with counseling and support groups.

Can I Still Place My Child For Adoption?

A Gift of Hope Adoptions has placed newborns, infants, toddlers, and young children with adoptive couples. We are confident there is a loving family eager to adopt your child too.

When placing your child for adoption, you want a plan in place to know what to expect. As the birth mother, you have complete control over who raises your child, the environment they grow up in, and how much contact you would like to have. The plan you choose is based on how much private information you wish to share.

This is a big decision, and we will never downplay how painful it is. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It doesn’t mean you are committing. It just means you are thinking about it and want to know more.

How do I create an adoption plan?

As you meet with one of our Adoption Care Coordinators, you will learn what to expect legally, financially, and emotionally. You will share what you most desire for your child.

Our counselors will talk with you about the various adoption plans, what you want in adoptive parents, and your time frame for completing the adoption.

Each state has different laws regarding when and how an adoption is completed. By working with a reputable agency like A Gift of Hope Adoptions, you’ll completely understand the adoption process before you sign any paperwork.

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.”
