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.
What sets Adoption Options apart from other similar programs?
• Guidance and Support from Adoption Options throughout the entire process
Undergoing the process of placing your adopted child for a second time adoption, or adopting a child who has previously been adopted, can be lengthy and complicated processes. Adoption Options’ Fresh Beginnings Program is unique because the agency will provide support and guidance, before beginning the process, during the process, and after finalization. Adoption Options is widely known for providing adoption support for children, individuals, and families in many different ways.
• Post Placement Supervision
Adoption Options offers post placement supervision services for families after they have been placed with their child. Post placement supervision helps ensure that a placement remains stable and healthy, and will continue to grow and thrive. Post placement visits allow the caseworker to visually observe how the placement is going, and allows the new adoptive family to receive in-home support.
• Various In-House adoption services
Adoption Options provides several adoption services, such as training and education, relinquishment counseling, home study services, attorney referrals, ICPC services, and even support groups. Adoption Options services are unique to the community because our agency is able to provide just about anything you may need regarding adoption.
