Does Adoption cost me anything as a birth mom?
No! At Children’s Adoption Services, birth families do not pay fees to our agency for any part of the process. We are here to support YOU as you make this decision and navigate this time in your life.
At the hospital will my baby will be taken away from me?

What if the birth father and/or my family does not support my decision to choose adoption?
At CAS, we work with birth families as they navigate the best choice and decision for your family and child. We would be happy to explore these options with the birth father as well, and encourage birth fathers to be part of this process. Adoption is your choice. You are the only one that can decide what is the best option for you and your baby. We can assist you with communicating with your family about your reasons for choosing adoption and help you find supports in your life that do support your decision.
How do I know my child will be well cared for?
We know birth families want to know their child will be SAFE, LOVED, and raised in a STABLE home. That’s what we want too! Our agency does thorough evaluations of each family prior to approving them to adopt. We visit the family in their home multiple times. We collect background checks, child abuse checks, financial assessment, and medical reports. After the child is gone home with the adoptive family, we continue to make home visits and have regular contact with the adoptive family.
