Fresh Beginnings Program
Fresh Beginnings Relinquishing Adoptive Parent Program
This program is designed to help families that are struggling with an adoption, either domestically or internationally, and have tried multiple ways to preserve the placement but those attempts have been unsuccessful. Our Fresh Beginnings Adoption Program allows families to explore alternative placements that will be a “fresh beginning” for a child and a family. When the decision has finally been made that the child should move to a new home, Adoption Options can help with the transition, help facilitate the placement and connect the current adoptive family to legal services. This is not an easy decision for anyone. Families and children need to have an experienced agency involved in the relinquishment process, the matching and transition of the child to a new family, and the post placement supervision and support with the new family.
Fresh Beginnings Adoptive Parent Program
This program is designed to connect approved adoptive families hoping to adopt an older child with placing families looking to voluntarily place their adopted child and relinquish their parental rights. Much like our Flexible Families Program, these children have a history of trauma in their birth family and may have some ongoing behavioral or medical issues that have carried into their adoptive family. Unfortunately, the issues have become unmanageable for the placing family and they have decided to place the child for adoption. These children may have been placed through foster care at some point or they are international children that have come to the United States through adoption. Regardless, the common thread is that, for whatever reason, the child can’t continue to live with their current adoptive family. Adoption Options is here to help the placing family look for another family that has been approved to adopt and is ready to take on parenting their child through adoption.
