The Gift of Family

Does the holiday season have you in the giving spirit? Looking to make an end of the year donation to a worthy cause? Consider donating to Friends in Adoption (FIA) in support of our mission. You’ll be contributing to FIA’s year-round efforts to bring families together through ethical, compassionate adoption practices.

Friends in Adoption is a non-profit agency providing comprehensive resources and support to all members of the adoption triad. When you choose to donate to FIA, you’re backing an organization that values and promotes:

Empowerment

Women who are pregnant and birth parents are empowered to be educated participants in the adoption process. Friends in Adoption offers pressure-free guidance on all available options, fostering informed-decision making. If a woman or a couple choose to move forward with creating an adoption plan, FIA helps birth families and prospective adoptive families work together to shape a personalized plan centered around the child.

Open Adoption

Open adoption allows for an ongoing direct relationship between the child and the birth family. Friends in Adoption (FIA) recognizes goodwill, respect, and courage as foundational elements of open adoption, paving the way for a smoother process which ultimately benefits the child. Each adoption is unique, and degrees of openness vary depending on the comfort level of those involved. Open adoptions require a shared commitment to the best interests of the child, and Friends in Adoption navigates the journey alongside the families we serve.

Inclusiveness

Friends in Adoption welcomes and celebrates diversity within the adoption triad. FIA does not discriminate against birth parents or prospective adoptive parents on the basis of race, ethnicity, marital status, age, religion, physical disability, income, sexual orientation, or gender identity/ expression (SOGIE). We respect the unique attributes of all individuals and prioritize being a fully inclusive agency.

Lifelong Support

The adoption journey doesn’t end with the placement of a child, and neither does Friends in Adoption’s support of its alumni families. FIA is a lifelong community resource for all members of the adoption triad, whether to be a listening ear, facilitate communication between adoptive families and birth families, or offer ongoing education and other resources.
