We believe in the importance of providing counseling to everyone who desires it, and our agency believes that adoption-focused counseling is an area of need in the community. We keep our fees reasonable, only $40 per session, so that the services are accessible for all families. We are thankful for our generous donors who support our work and allow us to keep all our fees low.
For most adoptees, there are emotional issues and a lifelong impact related to adoption, therefore, we offer additional support through our counseling services. The type and length of counseling will vary depending on each person and what issues are being addressed.
Some families, many years after they have finalized their adoption, have questions or problems that arise with their children that may require the help of adoption professionals. The most common issue for adoptive parents is guidance in responding to an adoptee’s emotional, behavioral, and developmental concerns.
Other issues experienced by adoptees and adoptive parents are:
Adult adoptees also experience similar issues. We want to help you navigate your adoption journey by providing available adoption competent counselors.
We are also committed to providing lifelong services to birth family members. It is normal to experience mixed feelings about adoption and have questions about how to communicate with other family members who may be unaware that an adoption took place.
