Thinking of adopting? You’ve come to the right place.
Adoption means many things to many different people, and they choose to adopt for different reasons.
Many adoptive parents are unable to have biological children, but that’s not always the case. Some choose adoption over costly and uncertain infertility treatments, and others prefer to skip the experience of pregnancy altogether. Others just want to grow their families.
Some adoptive parents already have biological children when they decide to adopt, and some feel adoption is their calling. Adoptive parents can start as foster parents, or as a relative or stepparent of the adopted child. Some adoptive parents were adopted as children themselves.
Whatever brings you here, we look forward to meeting you and helping you build your family.
How does it work?
Open adoption is healthy and beneficial.
We believe that openness in adoption benefits the child as well as the birth mother. Open adoption is a way of honouring the significance of the birth parents and making those connections accessible to the adopted child.
Ongoing communication and contact between the birth parent(s) and the adoptive family can take the form of letters, emails, phone calls or visits. The amount of contact is negotiated and varies from one adoption to another. Open adoption is good for the adopted child as it allows him or her to maintain relationships with important people in his life; as he or she grows older, open adoption allows access to information about his or her origins and background.
Not flesh of my flesh,
Nor bone of my bone,
but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute;
You didn’t grow under my heart
but in it.
