COUNSELING SERVICES

Adoption Associates is a Michigan adoption agency. We want women with unplanned pregnancies to know that we are here for you.  We understand your feelings, fears and questions during this difficult time. We will talk with you honestly about your options and provide you with resources to help you make the best decision for your child. Your caseworker will work closely with you to understand adoption, help you find a home for your baby with the ideal adoptive family, determine the amount of contact you wish to share with the family and your child, what plans you want for the hospital, and provide emotional support.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

 As a Michigan child adoption agency, Adoption Associates can help provide financial support during your pregnancy. The Michigan Adoption Code allows an adoptive family to help you with reasonable pregnancy related expenses during your pregnancy and for up to six weeks after delivery.

TRANSPORTATION AND HOUSING

Some of the adoption services our staff or the adoptive family can assist you with are transportation to appointments, or we can help you access community transportation in your area. We can also assist you in locating housing resources in your area, providing financial assistance in some cases and emergency programs, if necessary.

MEDICAL CARE

 As a Michigan child adoption agency, Adoption Associates wants to make sure that you and your baby are well cared for. We can help find a clinic or doctor, file a Medicaid application or arrange for an adoptive family to cover your out-of-pocket medical expenses if you’re covered by a private insurance.

Adoption Process

There are many steps to completing your adoption process. The first is meeting with an agency to learn more about adoption and to make sure that you have all your questions answered. Adoption is voluntary, but it is also permanent, so it is important that you understand the process completely. Once you have decided that adoption is the best plan for your baby’s future, your caseworker will assist you in identifying the adoptive family for your baby. Most birth parents choose to meet the family during their pregnancy and get to know them a little better before delivery.

A Birthmother’s Reflection:
Looking Back Twenty Years Later

In many ways some of us are very similar. We have had our hearts broken, walked through fire, and lived to talk about it. My story starts as a little girl growing up. I attended a Christian school and my family attended church twice every Sunday. I had a great upbringing, never lacked for anything……until 1988. I was ten years old. It was a Sunday morning and my dad was getting ready to go for his morning run. He left, leaving my mom to get us kids ready for church. We did not know that my dad would never come back home. My dad went to be with Jesus on May 22nd. Again, I was ten; I had no idea how to react or how to process my feelings. After all, what’s mourning to a ten year old?
