One of the most wonderful and terrifying moments in any individual or couple’s lives is the moment when they decide to start or add to their family. For many, this decision means that they have decided to take the steps to seek information on adoption.
Today in the United States, the myth that it is incredibly difficult to adopt domestically has been widely spread and so it’s not uncommon for prospective parents to initially seek out international adoption agencies. What isn’t commonly known is that more than 18,000 infants are adopted domestically in the U.S. each year.
Adoptions From The Heart has been working with pregnant women and prospective parents since 1985. The agency offers services for all parties involved. For pregnant women, assistance obtaining medical care for both mother and child, support groups, and legal counsel is available. Prospective parents will find that the agency can assist them with home studies, child abuse clearances, information on financial assistance, and counseling programs.
The phrase open adoption is nothing to be afraid of. When adopting through Adoptions From The Heart, a certain degree of openness is expected, but usually means that prior to the adoption, there are pre-placement meetings between the pregnant women and prospective parents with discussions on the degree of openness expected after the adoption. Then, when the time comes, the infant is placed directly from the hospital.
For those who are interested in learning more about domestic adoption in Central Pennsylvania, Adoptions From The Heart, which has an office located near Harrisburg in Lancaster, is hosting an online Webinar titled “Discover Domestic Infant Adoption” on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. The webinar will be led by a social worker who will be able to answer any questions that attendees may have. This information meeting is free but registration on the AFTH website is required.
