Call us, day or night. 24/7 A social worker is always available to talk and answer your questions. Your call does not mean you’ve decided on adoption. But it helps to talk to someone who cares and is able to tell you about every option available to you and explain every step of the process.
CREATE AN ADOPTION PLAN THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU
We will work with you to create an adoption plan that fits all of your needs and hopes for your baby. You are in complete control and you decide what type of adoption you want. You choose how much contact you’d like to have with the adoptive parents and the baby. Whether you want adoptive parent(s) you can spend time with and form a friendship, or prefer to keep it private, we can connect you with the best fit for your needs.
CHOOSE A FAMILY FOR YOUR BABY
Take your time reading and looking at picture books of families waiting to adopt and talk to them before making a decision. These are no pressure situations, you're just getting to know them and learning what they are about. It's okay if you don't feel a connection and would like to meet someone else. You'll know in your heart when it's right.
PLAN YOUR DELIVERY, YOUR WAY
We walk you through the process of creating a plan for your hospital stay. After the baby is born, you’ll have the option to spend time with the baby, the adoptive family, and/or a counselor. The baby will go directly home from the hospital with the adoptive family. You can have whoever you want to be there as your support. We will make sure you have everything you need to be as comfortable as possible as well.
AFTER PREGNANCY SUPPORT
We can help you sort through your feelings and answer your questions. We are here for you whenever you need us, even after the baby is born. We want to make sure you're in a good place physically and mentally. You are important!
If you believe that adoption is your best plan for your baby, we will provide financial help with living expenses, for things like rent, clothing, food, transportation, utilities, lost wages, and other pregnancy-related expenses, as allowed by Indiana Law. We want you and your baby to be safe and taken care of and will do whatever we can do to help you, by law.
ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
Do I have to involve the father?
If you are an Indiana resident and are not married to the father, you have the option to not name the father of the baby. You can choose adoption for yourself and the baby without getting his permission. If you are outside of Indiana or legally married, please call/text us so we can explain your options and give you all of the facts. show contact info

Am I able to get free counseling?
Yes. As part of our commitment to you and your well-being, KidsFirst will connect you with a counselor at no cost to you at all.
What are the most common reasons women place their baby for adoption?
The most common reason, far above all else, is that she loves her child so much and wants to give her child a future with more than she can offer at this time in her life. Adoption is the single most selfless act of love. The second most common reason, is often times one that women are embarrassed to admit, but it is completely valid and nothing to be ashamed of. Many women that find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy believe there is still so much more they want to do with their life first. Becoming a mother is the most demanding and life changing experience, it's okay to consider everything that it means, including putting all of your dreams and plans on hold. As much as this is a completely understandable reason and nothing to be ashamed of, the decision to place a child for adoption always comes from a place of love at the heart of it and the genuine belief that the baby will have a more stable life, full of love and opportunity, because of the mother's sacrifice.
