Services for Birth Moms & Adoptive Families
After the Adoption
Post-Adoption Support is a very important part of the adoption journey for all members of the adoption triad. For a birth mom, post adoption support is crucial. Even in the best adoption experiences there is still the need to work through the feelings and emotions that result from placing a child with another family. Grief is a natural response to loss and its vital that support for a birth mother includes equipping her with the tools needed to manage the grief. You can learn more about grief recovery here.
The open adoption relationship is a complex one to navigate. Certain seasons require more support than others. We can help you with this part of the journey. We work via an online private platform with both the birth mom and the adoptive family either independently or in an online group to define the boundaries within the post adoption relationship and to help answer any questions that might arise along the way.
Together we build a relationship that respectfully supports each person in the adoption triad.
Stay in Touch with ChildConnect™
Photo and letter sharing made safe and easy! Birth parents can privately and conveniently receive timely photos and important updates increasingly faster when sent to them through Childconnect. The adoptive families are now the ones sending updates instead of others having to wait on the adoption agency to mail everything.
Why are updates and photos so important?
When a birth mother receives updates and photos this helps her to heal and to move forward from the memory of an infant that she placed for adoption to a child who is growing and being well cared for. As a result, comfort can then be found in the fact that the child is being loved and cared for by the chosen family. The faithfulness of sending photos and updates shows integrity on the part of the adoptive couple upholding their post adoption commitments.
