POTENTIAL BIRTH MOTHERS

Request a Birth Mom Mentor or Birth Father Mentor. Many of our mentors are not shown on our map, so please also reach out to us at Talkaboutadoption@gmail.com so we can connect you with a person to speak with immediately for assistance and support. We also have a private Facebook page for you to connect with various birth moms and fathers from all different life stages and ages.
Legal Representation: Birth parents may want an additional legal representative during the adoption process and after relinquishing their parental rights. When seeking an additional attorney, find out how many adoptions the attorney has handled, and ask whether any of them were contested or developed other complications. The American Academy of Adoption Attorneys can help or refer a potential birth parent to the nearest adoption attorney in their area.
Talk About Adoption™ lists maternity homes that provide pregnant women with free and safe housing. The maternity homes listed below will also provide an expectant mother with parenting courses and resources if she is choosing to parent, and referrals to honest and reputable licensed adoption agencies if she is seeking an adoption plan. Talk About Adoption™ promotes maternity homes that advocate a woman’s decision to either parent or place her child for adoption.
*If you are a maternity home that provides pregnant women with parenting or adoption resources, please contact Talk About Adoption™ so we can add your name to our list. Your organization must meet certain criteria. Once you have contacted us, we will respond back to you shortly for details in acceptance.
