What is the First Step?
Making the best plan for you and your baby is important.
Your counselor will work with you to create a unique plan.
Sometimes knowing where to begin can be difficult. Many birth parents start by just calling and talking to one of our counselors. The call is free. When you call, a counselor will answer all of your questions truthfully and candidly. She will help you explore all your options. If you wish, following your call the counselor will send you initial information about adoption. Often we will meet with you to share information in person. If we meet, it will be at a time and location of your choosing.
All our services are free to expectant parents. Sometimes birth mothers may find they need financial assistance with basic living expenses and/or expenses associated with their pregnancy. We will work with you to assess your circumstances and assist you as allowed by law.
You will have your own personal counselor who will be with you throughout the entire process. When you want guidance, support, or information, your counselor will always be there for you. Of course, we will also help you to explore ways to parent your child yourself should you choose to do so. Counseling is also offered after the birth of your baby or for as long as you need us. If you live outside of Massachusetts, we will provide you with a local counselor in addition to your counselor from Adoption Resources.
Adoption Resources is able to assist you in furthering your education or receiving training for future employment. We are frequently able to provide some tuition assistance for either an academic or vocational program of your choice.
