Gift of Life Adoptions has been helping birth parents and adoptive parents with for the past 25 years. We approach adoption with a social work model and understand that an adoption plan is a very sensitive and delicate process for everyone involved.
Gift of Life prides itself on the fact that everyone that works at the agency either has a social work degree or a background in some sort of social service focus. We also have an attorney on staff that has over 25 years of experience practicing law, with the majority of his years spent focusing on dependency and adoption.
The personal touch you receive from Gift of Life Adoptions is really in a league of its own. We answer our phone 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, and we travel to you wherever you. You never have to feel obligated to come into our office to meet with us.
As a birth parent or an adoptive parent, you will always have an assigned case manager.
A personal case manager is a refreshing take on adoption, because it creates one point of contact for the entire adoption process.
You get to select what type of adoption will best meet your needs. You can decide what type of openness will work best for you and your family. Gift of Life Adoptions is here to help you think through this decision and inform you of all your options. Even if you decide you do not want pictures and letters immediately, Gift of Life Adoptions will always have pictures and letters waiting for you if ever you change your mind. All of our families provide picture and letter updates until the child turns 18 years old.
Besides developing relationships with all of our clients, we also strive to make relationships with the providers and hospitals that we frequent. We know most of the hospital social workers by first name. We are also vastly familiar with each hospital’s policy on adoptions. This the experience at these locations that more special for all of our clients.
We try to prepare our clients the best we can for any seen or unforeseen bumps in the adoption road. We find that when when our clients are educated and prepared, they are able to better navigate the complicated emotions of adoption.
Gift of Life endeavors to keep the best interest of our clients in the forefront of our minds. We think and worry about our clients long after we leave the office for the day. We walk with you as a partner in your adoption journey.
