Welcome to CHOICES Adoption and Pregnancy Counselling website

Whether you are an expectant parent, or a prospective adoptive parent, CHOICES is here to help.

We have designed this site to:

  • Provide you with information about Adopting a child, whether you’re the pregnant teen or adult parent or if you’re looking to adopt a child.
  • Offer resources. Whether you need emotional support through the process, financial assistance or just more information about what you can do, there are many options available and a lot of resources. We can help point you in the right directions
  • Keep you updated, informed and connected

The adoption process is an intensely emotional journey, often filled with unexpected turns and unanticipated challenges at many levels. There are risks and often no clear answers. We will help guide you along this path. We have been serving the adoption community for 20 years. Our commitment to adoption and children has sent us around the world, providing child placement services and humanitarian aid. At CHOICES, we focus on the needs and the rights of the children, we strive to offer efficient and personalized service and pride ourselves on staying up to date on issues pertaining to the adoption community. We at CHOICES Adoption & Counselling believe that there is only one kind of appropriate adoption: ethical, transparent and accountable. Anyone privileged to work in the field of adoption must create and live by work practices and procedures that adhere to the highest standards of honesty and integrity. We are opposed to the condoning of human rights abuses under the guise of understanding and accepting cultural diversity. We are in favor of clarity and believe that in knowledge there is security for children and for the future of adoption as a legitimate and useful method of creating a family for unparented children.

Additionally, we want you to know you have CHOICES in your adoption journey, whether you are an expectant parent or a prospective adoptive parent; you may make a choice to place your child for adoption, you choose the level of openness that you are comfortable with, you may choose to adopt, you choose a country program, you choose to accept a proposal…your journey will be full of choices and with this comes empowerment, and also responsibility.

We hope you find this website helpful and encourage you to offer feedback here.

We wish you well in your adoption journey and look forward to working with you. Thank you for visiting our site and welcome to the beginning of your journey.

Sincerely Yours,

 

Robin Pike
Executive Director
