Why should I work with Alliance for Children?
Alliance has helped birthmothers and adoptive families for over 40 years. We care about your needs during your pregnancy, before and after you place your baby. We can provide counseling, help in finding a doctor and medical care, help in choosing a family, and assist you with pregnancy-related expenses.
Will it cost me anything to place my baby for adoption?
No, it will not cost you anything. The adopting parents pay for the adoption and for help with your living expenses (rent, phone, utilities, food, transportation, and maternity clothes).
Can I choose my baby’s family?
Yes, you can choose the family for your baby. Alliance has families that are loving, stable, financially secure and safe. You tell us what is important to you in a family, for you and your baby, and we will help you find the perfect family.
TYPES OF ADOPTION
Your choice is important. We want you to tell us what adoption plan feels best for you and your baby.
In an open adoption, you will choose the adopting family, meet and get to know the family and have ongoing contact before and after your baby is born and placed.
In a semi-open adoption, you can choose the family, have contact with the family and/or receive ongoing updates, letters and pictures through our agency.
In a closed adoption, you will ask us to choose a family for your baby and have all communications with the family go through our agency.
A Note to Birth Mothers
As soon as you decide to work with the Alliance for Children adoption agency, you become part of our family. We are here to give you confidential, non-judgmental, caring support. We are here for you from your first phone call to long after your adoption is finalized.
We care about what you feel is best for you and your baby and are here to support you no matter what you decide. After your adoption is finalized, we will continue to support and assist you in reaching your long-term goals and interests.
We are happy to provide birth parent references upon request.
