FIA is committed to providing ethical adoption services. The goal of our staff is not to pressure a woman or couple into making an adoption plan. Rather, we seek to help you sort through feelings and options and support your informed decision. If you choose adoption, you, along with the prospective adoptive family, will be able to shape the plan to make it unique and personal — keeping the needs of the child as central.

We understand that considering an adoption plan for your unborn baby or already born child raises many questions and your choices may feel overwhelming. Our staff is here to be supportive, provide referrals to resources, answer your questions and guide you through your options. If you choose adoption, you have many choices.

FIA recognizes that privacy and confidentiality are often critical. Our kind and experienced staff are available to support you 24 hours a day, and you can feel comfortable speaking honestly without fear of being judged. FIA offers free, face-to-face, local counseling services for you and your family, both prior to and after the placement of your child. FIA can refer you to free legal services and can offer help with medical and living expenses, as the law allows.

Empowerment

Pregnant women/expectant parents and birth parents are empowered through the process. This means we provide information on all available options and support without pressure.
