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. The open adoption relationship is a complex one to navigate. We can help you with this part of the journey. After the adoption, we work with both the birth mom and the adoptive family 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.

Childconnect is the only post adoption resource proven to improve post adoption relationships. Childconnect will support any type of post adoption plan or agreement.
