Birth Parent Information
Adoption is an option for individuals who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Consequently, Children’s Aid Society assists birth parents through the process. In addition, we offer counseling along the way. We believe that birth parents have the right to make decisions for themselves as well as their children.
Children’s Aid Society encourages birth parents to select the type of family they desire for their child. Their preferences for the adopting family’s geographic location, religious affiliation and lifestyle are most important. Overall, we respect the wishes of the birth parents and the adopting family concerning the degree of openness with the adoption.
