Financial Planning & Help Services
Adoption Life will support you in having a safe and healthy pregnancy. You may need some financial support to help you achieve those goals. This may include provisions for things like maternity clothes, a safe place to live, medical care, and healthy food. These funds are typically paid to the agency by the adopting family you have selected. Following legal guidelines, the agency makes sure these funds are used appropriately to help you stay safe and healthy.
At Adoption Life you can sit down with your adoption professional and assess together what your needs are. From there we will help you create a financial needs plan for a safe and healthy pregnancy and recovery. We know these conversations can be difficult. These funds are meant to help you and your child. Accepting this support will never be used to coerce you into making an adoption plan for your child.
