Birth Parent Services

Adoption is a positive and brave choice

Are you pregnant and unsure what you want to do? An unexpected pregnancy can cause major changes in your life. LCFS is here to provide expectant mothers and fathers with compassionate, respectful and confidential assistance as you consider your child’s future as well as your own. Choosing to place a child for adoption is a difficult and selfless decision. Please contact us for a non-judgmental and open discussion about your options.

Supporting Your Choices

Inquiring about and discussing an adoption plan does not mean you have made your decision. The choice is yours and you are in control. The LCFS social worker will be your support and advocate. This individual will meet with you privately and confidentially, in a location that is comfortable for you, to help you sort out feelings, examine your options and reach an informed, positive decision concerning your baby’s future. This commitment is made to both parents regardless of marital status!

  • There are no fees to you for these services.
  • No one at LCFS will pressure you as you examine your choices.
  • Your conversations with your LCFS worker are always confidential.
  • Your worker will never talk to others about you or your situation without your permission.
  • If you are a minor, you do not need parental permission to place a child for adoption.
  • Control of the decision-making process is always in your hands, but you can choose to include others important to you in the process.
  • If you choose to parent your baby, follow-up services are available, including referrals to resources for parents and children.
