Adoption Match Support and Counseling
Whether you are an expectant parent or prospective adoptive parent, we can provide
emotional support and guidance throughout an adoptive match.
Our social workers will collaborate with both the prospective birth and adoptive parents to guide you through the challenging concerns and steps throughout the process. We will help facilitate meet ups to help you get to know one another while also fostering the ability to have direct contact with one another. We help prepare for the hospital stay, discuss type and amount of contact you plan to have with one another, and be a support for all members of the adoption triad. We offer grief counseling to expectant and birthparents and offer support and match updates to prospective adoptive parents. We also work with your adoption attorney or agency to provide documentation necessary for the placement and legal process.
