Adoption as a Parenting Plan

Are you considering adoption as a parenting plan?  At ACPC, we not here to persuade you in one direction or another.  We believe the most important service we can provide is to act a as a resource, helping you discover all of your options and access the facts you need to make the best decision for you.

Investigating adoption is a mature and responsible idea, no matter what your final decision turns out to be.   The good thing is that you can take your time because exploring adoption requires no commitments.  In most states adoption cannot be legally finalized until after the baby is born.  Birth parents get to be in control of the adoption plan they make and usually choose between three types of adoption: open, partially open, and confidential. read more
