Our Philosophy

We believe that all children deserve a life of continual love, security and a positive future, no matter what circumstances surrounded their arrival. Adoption allows expectant parents to choose that future for their child, when parenting is not the right option for them at that time in their lives.

We are very sensitive to the fact that every adoption is as unique and special as the people involved. Adoption is also a life-changing and life-long event! We are dedicated to supporting expectant and birth parents, adoptive parents and the children they love throughout their individual adoption journeys, which will last a lifetime. We believe in ‘child-centered’ adoptions where the child’s best interests are at the forefront of every decision made and action taken by us and by each member of the adoption triad.

At Adoption Connection, we help expectant parents find a loving outcome for an unplanned pregnancy. We can also help with the placement of older children when it is in their best interests as well. We help children and adoptive parents come together as families.

The ideas are simple. The motivations are real. The experiences are rewarding.

Whether you are an expectant or birth parent considering adoption or a prospective adoptive family, let us help you make your “adoption connection” today!
