If you are considering adoption, congratulations!
You’ve made a powerful brave decision and you are about to embark on an exciting journey! As amazing as adoption can be it can also prove to be a difficult one to navigate. Especially if you don’t have the understanding and resources to guide you through it.
As a birth mother, the best place to start your adoption journey is with research.
The adoption community is a welcoming one and will provide you a wealth of information! There are many support groups and networking for both birth parents and adoptive parents. You can search for in-person support groups near you or find an online community!
Now that you’ve determined that you’re emotionally and mentally ready to move forward with adoption, the next step is to partner with Adoption Choices of Arizona that can help mediate the process of your adoption journey. We will assist adoptive parents in building their family and birth parents in making the plan that is best for them. All personal preferences will be considered and we will provide you top notch quality service.
Adoption Choices of Arizona is a private adoption agency. We are licensed and regulated by the state of Arizona. While Adoption through private agencies can be more expensive (always free for birth parents!!), you will appreciate the improved quality of care, and also the increased influence over the adoption plan (for both birth parent and adoptive parent desires). We provide a level of intimacy and hands-on guidance that other organization cannot.
