Prospective Birth Parent Services by Adoption & BeyondAdoption & Beyond is here to support expecting parents as they consider adoption.
At Adoption & Beyond, each of us have had our hearts touched by adoption. We understand that exploring this choice is a brave step to take. Our goal is to know you and your story and to learn how we can best help you make a well-informed decision based on information
We recommend that you first discuss your feelings with people who will be supportive: your partner, close friends, or family members. If you don’t yet feel comfortable sharing with others, or don’t have trusted support, we are here to listen and offer free guidance and encouragement as you explore your options.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM US
We are here to listen, empower, encourage and guide as you decide what is best for you and your child’s future. We strongly believe in your right to make a loving decision and respect whichever choice you make.
Beyond those who need to know, you have the right to decide who knows about your adoption plan. You can speak freely to your adoption coordinator with the confidence that they will honor your right to privacy.
Here is a Brief Overview of the Adoption Process

A&B is amazing for both adopting and birth parents. Steffany was very helpful for me and my family.
I’m grateful to the agency for giving us such a positive experience. I know some women aren’t as lucky and if I am able to help even one, I’ll gladly do it.

– Rebecca (birth mother)
Just wanted to say thank you for being so great and wonderful through the adoption. You have done so much for me and been so amazing and supportive during a happy and bittersweet occasion. You went above and beyond for me, getting my prescriptions, taking me home from the Hospital. You have always been there for me and truly made a difference. The adoption was not easy for me, was by far the most difficult decision I have ever faced, but I am at peace by knowing she is in great and loving hands. I will always be grateful and thankful to you and everyone who was involved with the adoption.
