Adoptive Families

Adrienne Elliott, Executive Director - Letter to Adoptive FamiliesThank you for considering Adoption Options, a longstanding Colorado adoption agency. We are very aware that you are facing a most important life decision. We recognize the importance of each family’s uniqueness and by working with our experienced and caring professionals, we will help you determine if adoption is appropriate and, if so, design the best adoption plan for you.

As you are gathering information about adoption and inquiring about the services provided by different adoption agencies, it can get confusing. We would like to point out some unique qualities about our program. The first is that the fees stated on the fee schedule are a flat rate for all our services, so there are no financial surprises at the end. If a birth parent doesn’t proceed with an adoption plan, you continue with the adoption process with no additional costs.

Second, we encourage adoptive families and birth families to consider the long-term needs of the child and themselves in determining what dynamics will work best for them, so generally our placements range from semi-open (communication only through the agency) to totally open (full disclosure of identifying information). We ask all adoptive families to sign a communication agreement which consists of photos and letters to be sent through the agency to the birth parents for a minimum of five years. The current wait time is approximately 18 months.

We are an agency whose proven record you can trust. We work with approved families to place the child they are waiting for in the most pleasant manner and most reasonable time possible. Your confidence in choosing Adoption Options is well placed and most appreciated. We truly look forward to assisting you in this rewarding journey.

We invite you to attend one of our information nights. If you are ready to proceed, we invite you to begin your adoption journey by returning the application form, application fee, and supporting documentation.
