Insight: Open Adoption Resources and Support
One of the most important things you can do at this time is get as much information as you can. Information not only on adoption, but what parenting would mean for you and your child as well.
Lamb Of God Maternity Home
Lamb Of God Maternity Home is a place for women in a crisis/unplanned pregnancy to come and live at no cost to them. We house women who are placing their babies for open adoption. They stay with us from any point during their pregnancy until about 2 months after they have placed their baby. We work towards healing the girl from whatever she is suffering from and helping her to accomplish all of her goals. We support, love, and help her through the entire adoption process while getting her back on her feet. Lamb of God is a beautiful, loving and nurturing environment where a birth mom will live with other girls making the same adoption decision as she is.
National Council for Adoption: IChooseAdoption.org
This is a site full of information, stories and support for women considering adoption.
Open Adoption Bloggers
We are a group of writers from all sides of open adoption, encompassing hundreds of blogs by adult adoptees, first parents, adoptive parents, adoption professionals, and extended family members. What began as a small blogroll has grown into an online hub for discussion and connections between people who are living out openness in adoption.
AdoptionServices.org: Support Grous for Birth Mothers
We know that what you are going through can be very difficult and that what you may need most of all is someone to talk to. Adoption support groups for birth mothers or birth fathers who are thinking of placing (or recently placed) a child for adoption are very limited and those that do exist are often hard to find.
