“I loved her the moment I laid eyes on her and it was in that instant I knew adoption was the best choice for both of us. I was unable to give her the things she needed both financially and emotionally. Adoption has allowed her to grow and explore the world in a stable and loving environment. Through open adoption I have been blessed with the opportunity to watch her grow into a beautiful child who fills my heart with happiness and peace.”
- KATIE, 22-YEAR-OLD BIRTH MOTHER

Cradle Care families serve a crucial role in many adoption journeys. Adoption Options is proud to offer this service to help you navigate this decision-making time in your life. These are licensed homes with extensive newborn training. They provide interim care for a newborn or child while new parents are in a decision-making phase.
Cradle Care families spend countless hours with babies in NICUs to provide Kangaroo Care with preemies and host or facilitate visits with the birth parents and/or adoptive parents. This program is designed to provide a calming support for birth parents and potential adoptive parents.
It’s normal to have many questions about the adoption process. We're here to help! Please contact us, or read through a few of our frequently asked questions about Colorado adoption.
Is financial assistance available?
Yes, depending on the circumstances. Part of what your birth parent counselor will do is to connect you to any resources you might need. We can also help with pregnancy-related expenses such as those for medical care, maternity clothes, housing, or food. Reach out today to talk about your individual needs.
What does birth parent counseling mean? Why do I have to meet with a counselor?
Colorado requires that parents planning an adoption receive counseling in order to ensure that they understand all of their choices, rights, and responsibilities. In addition, we find that speaking with an understanding and compassionate counselor can be very helpful as you go through a complicated and challenging experience. Your birth parent counselor will also act as your advocate and support through the entire journey.
What about the father of the baby?
In Colorado, birth fathers have legal rights that must be considered. It’s required that the father of a baby be notified about a plan of adoption and he may choose to participate in counseling along with the mother. However, we understand that birth mothers often may feel that their situation is complicated, emotional, or threatening. If this is the case, our experienced staff will help explore what legal options might be available.
What will this adoption be like in the future? Will I ever hear how my child is doing?
In adoption today, expectant parents have many choices about how their adoption plan proceeds. Open adoption has become much more common and many expectant parents are interested in some type of future contact. Others may be looking for a relationship with less contact, or even none at all. However you envision the relationship with your child’s adoptive family, Adoption Options can help you make it a reality.
