FREE 24/7 Options-based Counseling

Are you facing an unplanned or unintended pregnancy in Colorado? Do you need an experienced local agency to support you as you consider adoption? You may be feeling confused and scared right now, but Adoption Options can help.

Have you already decided that adoption is the best path for you? We can support you as you choose the right adoptive family and guide you in creating your individual plan for placement.

Are you feeling like you don’t even know where to start? That’s okay, too. We can help you take the first steps and answer all of your question to prepare for your future.

Here are what the next few steps can look like:

  • Adoption Options is available 24/7 by phone, text, or email. You can talk with one of our compassionate birth parent counselors to have your questions answered or schedule a free, face-to-face meeting.
  • Your personal birth parent counselor/advocate will walk with you through the process as you consider your options and decide on the right path for you and your child.
  • If you decide to move forward with creating a plan of adoption for your baby, your counselor will talk with you about the process of choosing an adoptive family, placing your baby, and relinquishing your legal rights.

Since opening in 1981, Adoption Options has worked with hundreds of expectant parents. We know that adoption stories come in all shapes and sizes, and we’re here to help you create your own.
