Choice Network has the amazing opportunity to partner with other like-hearted organizations around the country. Our goal is to educate staff members at women’s clinics so they’re more equipped and empowered to offer women a true choice.
Most of our expectant women come to us from clinics or referrals from Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida. With our new clinic app, we hope to expand into more states in our region and nationwide. This amazing new tool is like none other — women walk through each of their three choices on a tablet with the app. If they would like to learn more about adoption, they can connect with us and we can talk with them right from the clinic. They can even view families right from the app!
Out-of-state adoptions are common. Families by Choice should be prepared to match with an expectant woman from out of state, which requires various travel costs, accommodations, time off of work, etc. This is an incredible experience — it’s all worth it in order to make a solid connection with your child’s birth mother, to nurture the relationship and to have time with your child when they are born.
Out-of-state adoptions can be solid open adoptions, which is what we always encourage with our families. Several Families by Choice enjoy these relationships, and make travel arrangements to visit each other a few times a year and make new memories at sporting events, fun sites or family BBQs. Living out of state doesn’t mean you can’t have a thriving open adoption! We’d love to give you ideas on how this can work well for all involved. ChooseLove Forever, our social platform for families, makes staying in touch over your child’s lifetime and over the miles even easier! Share photos, videos and letters to stay in touch and make plans for your next gathering. 🙂
