How We Help...

If you decide to parent, we will help you get the services that you need. If you decide on adoption, we will guide and support you through the process and be there for you in the days and years to follow.

You don't have to come to our office. We can meet you in the place that feels most comfortable or chat by email or phone.

Whether you are sure adoption is for you, or just want to learn more, we are here to help.


How Adoption Works

Step One - Talk With Us
When you contact us, our professional staff will answer your immediate questions, listen to your immediate concerns, and provide the information that will enable you to move forward. Sometimes, just talking with us is all you need to make your decision. Sometimes, you'll want and need more.

Even if you live in a state outside of New England, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are happy to speak with you via phone or email and are able to arrange local assistance for you through our partner agencies across the United States.

Step Two - Meet With Us
Our meetings are confidential, non-judgmental and sensitive to your needs. We help you sort through feelings. We provide you full and accurate information about the social, emotional and legal aspects of adoption. Then, if you choose, we help you to make the adoption plan that best meet your needs and those of your baby. We guide you to available resources that help carry out your plan.

Step Three - Select an Adoptive Family
If you choose adoption for your child, you may also choose to:
  • Select your child's adoptive family from among families who have been pre-screened and approved for adoption by our staff
  • Meet your child's adoptive family
  • Receive periodic visits, pictures and updates as your child grows
We help to put your plan and decisions into action by introducing you to appropriate families who meet your chosen criteria.

Step Four - Your child's birth and beyond
The birth of your child is a challenging time, and so is the time after you leave the hospital. You can rely on your Ascentria representatives for support before, during, and after your hospital stay.
