What People Are Saying

  • “I had an unplanned pregnancy which led to months of confusion, denial, and grief. The most important thing through the whole process is making the decisions that let you, the mother, be the most comfortable.  Physically, the pregnancy got harder, but having reliable, supportive help made it easier. I found a wonderful adoptive family through CHOICES and have an open adoption, which means I will be involved in the baby’s life. The best part of the pregnancy was knowing that I could ask for help and it would be there. I gained a new family and new friends, too.”

  • “CHOICES provided me with truly exceptional support throughout my pregnancy and afterward as well. Not only did they help make this process easier for me, but through the counselling they provided, I learned a lot about myself and gained new awareness. I will always be truly grateful for all that CHOICES has provided to me.”

  • “As a birth grandmother, I cannot say enough of the caring a help that was given to my daughter in time of great turmoil in her life. She was interviewed by a very understanding, non-pressuring counselor who came to our home, then returned in a few days with several prospective and well matched adoptive parents. She was told that if they did not meet her needs more would be chosen for her. Once my daughter’s decision was made, she was supported in every way possible. She was able to call the agency with any of her concerns. All was done in the best interests of the baby, birth mother and the prospective parents. Never was confidentially breached unless mutuality was agreed up by all parties. We as a family were able to send gifts and messages through the agency.”

  • “We worked with CHOICES adoption agency from 2013-2015 and all staff were very supportive throughout our adoption process. Our home study was a great experience and our social workers were very compassionate, flexible and accommodating. It was paramount to us that birth parents receive excellent pre and post natal counselling and it is clear to us that CHOICES offers excellent support throughout the process.”

  • “The process proved to be very invaluable to us. It was an excellent process that allowed us to explore our values and to reinforce our focus and goals and aspirations. It is always beneficial to be posed certain questions and situations to see how they are reacted to or handled. We learned a lot during the process and we believe it made us better people and better parents.”
