CAN I PICK MY FAMILY?
Yes! Your adoption plan is completely up to you. An advocate works with you to design your adoption plan. You can review as many profiles as you would like to choose the best family for you. Many of our birth parents meet the adoptive parents for dinner, go to doctors appointments together and/or talk on the phone, while others have minimal contact to no contact. With Haven Adoptions there is a broad scale of open and closed adoptions and we work with you to pick the right situation that best fits YOUR needs.
CAN I TALK TO SOMEONE RIGHT AWAY?
DOES ADOPTION COST ME ANYTHING?
No. Haven Adoptions’ services are provided to you at no cost.
WILL ANYBODY FIND OUT ABOUT THE ADOPTION?
No. All of our adoptions are confidential. If you choose not to share this information with your family and friends, that is your decision. You may share your adoption with whomever you are comfortable with, but that is your choice.
CAN I PICK AN OPEN OR CLOSED ADOPTION?
Yes, your adoption plan is your choice! Haven Adoptions offers open adoptions and closed adoptions. We want you to choose the adoption that best fits your needs. Open adoption is a form of adoption where the birth parents and adoptive families have an option for continuing contact after the birth of the baby. There are several different ways to remain in contact and it is up to the birth parents to decide what they are most comfortable with. This could include pictures and letter updates, phone and email contact, or visits a few times a year.
Closed Adoption is a form of adoption where an infant is adopted by another family and the record of the birth parents is kept sealed. There is no contact between the birth parents and adoptive parents.
You choose the level of openness that you are most comfortable with.
I NEED TO MOVE, CAN YOU HELP ME?
Yes, we can help you if you need to move. You can select where you would like to live and we will help you find something that is affordable and safe.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW WHO THE FATHER IS?
If you do not know who the father is you can still move forward with an adoption plan. Each state has different laws regarding the birth father of the child, but it is always possible to terminate a birth father’s rights when the birth father is unknown. If you do know the birth father, you can choose to have him participate in your adoption plan and there is a caseworker on staff to help him. We are here to help you understand the laws of adoption in the state that you are residing in and what the rights of the biological father are. Haven Adoptions is here to support you and make sure you are not alone during this journey.
CAN I RECEIVE COUNSELING
Yes! Haven Adoptions encourages counseling for all birth parents. You are welcome to choose your counselor or we have a wonderful counselor on staff to support you through the adoption.
CAN I MEET THE ADOPTIVE FAMILY?
Absolutely! If you choose to have an open adoption you can speak with the adoptive parents in person, on the phone and/or by e-mail. The contact you have is up to you.
The personalized attention you receive at Haven is beyond comparison. Every parent is assigned a caseworker to support them through the entire adoption. They become your friend, your confident, your support.
Both biological parents and adoptive parents are given countless program options to make the adoption process as smooth as possible.
With over 25 years combined experience, Haven’s founders bring an extensive background in adoption with years of experience working together in the field.

Real stories from Haven Birthmoms.
I definitely have my good, bad and ugly days, but what gets me through it is knowing I was able to choose two incredible parents for Haley, and that this is only the beginning of our future choosing an open adoption.Robin
