~ Adoptive Parent Services ~
​​Adoption Consultants, Inc. assists prospective adoptive parents through offering two unique programs designed to help fit each adoptive parent's individual needs, as well as their financial budget.  Adoption Consultants, Inc.'s services include adoption facilitation services for contracted families through our Contractual Facilitation Program, as well as a secondary program, our Registration Program, for non-contracted families.

Through our Contractual Facilitation Program, the office helps in assisting prospective adoptive parents with their efforts to locate an expectant mother they deem suitable through advertising, while also utilizing an outreach program targeting organizations​ which assist pregnant women.
The office assists a very limited number of families waiting at any one time in the Contractual Facilitation Program, currently limited to 20 families approximately. This ensures that whenever your criteria matches an expectant mother's criteria, your profile will be shown, which can definitely help to increase the visibility of a prospective adoptive parent's profile (Birth Mother letter) to potential birth mothers! Less than half of our facilitation fee becomes due upon contracting as a client, with the balance due ONLY upon matching with an expectant mother you deem to be suitable. (Should you choose to terminate the adoption process pre-match, for any reason, the balance remaining will NOT become due.) The office does not assess additional fees for the ongoing post-match services it provides, while guiding our clients through their adoption process. Should an adoption plan not successfully complete for ANY reason, the office does not assess re-match fees. To learn more about this program, click here: Contractual Facilitation Program .
For those who prefer not to remit any facilitation fees prior to an expectant mothers selecting them, the office's Registration Program may be just the answer! For a nominal processing charge of $300 for 1 year or $400 for 2 years, Adoption Consultants Inc. will remit your profile to expectant mothers the office is assisting once they have had the opportunity to review any contracted families profiles whose criteria meet their own and should they desire additional profiles to review. Additionally, registered families will be the first to have their profiles shared in the event no contracted family's criteria matches with a birth mother's criteria.  To learn more about this program, Click here: Registration Program . [Note: Adoption Consultants, Inc. is not a networker or referral service. Expectant mothers interested in adoption contact our office directly seeking adoptive families for their babies. They are screened and assessed directly by this office. Thus, minimizing the chances of any surprises arising.]
Adoption Consultants, Inc. realizes those it assists may have different needs, and has thus developed its two unique programs to help fill this void in the adoption community. Adoption Consultants, Inc.'s primary goal is to assist each and every prospective adoptive parent in their efforts to adopt, and at an affordable cost. The office maintains a very limited clientele base in its Contractual Facilitation Program (currently limited to 20 families approximately) in order to better provide each Client with individualized attention, as well as to help increase visibility of one's Profile (Birth Mother letter) to potential birth mothers, with the goal that each Client might be able to realize their dream to adopt, and within as timely a manner as is possible!

Her theraputic counseling experience, as well as her extensive educational background, have proven to be invaluable assets crossing over directly to her work in the adoption field, as the vast majority of birth parents feel "in crisis" and distressed by an unplanned pregnancy, thus requiring not only education and information, but emotional support and understanding as well.
