Compassionate Care to Help Shape Your Destiny

Destiny Adoption Services strives to expand families through private adoption while simultaneously honoring our Birth Mothers through various support services. Destiny Adoption Services provides home studies, adoption education, post-placement supervision, and many other services to prospective adoptive applicants.

There are two advocates involved during the adoption journey: An Adoptive Parent advocate and a Birth Mother advocate. Support is also available for Birth Fathers in the form of education pertaining to adoption and the importance of his role in assisting the Birth Mother with selecting an Adoptive Family. Feeling supported by an individual that is tasked with the sole responsibility of maintaining that your voice is heard brings an element of comfort to what can be a bittersweet and difficult journey to maneuver through. Destiny Adoption Services believes in matching an Adoptive Parent(s) with a Birth Mother based on preferences and not on a tier system or required waiting period prior to being considered for a match.

Every adoption journey is unique in terms of preferences on behalf of both the Adoptive Parent(s) and the Birth Mother. Factors to consider pertaining to preferences on behalf of the Adoptive Parent(s) entail a comfort level with the Birth Mother and Birth Father’s physical and mental health history, as well as her extended family. An Adoptive Parent(s) will complete two worksheets for their comfort level preferences and openness level preferences. Likewise, a Birth Mother and Birth Father will discuss their preferences for an Adoptive Parent(s) with her advocate such as religion, race, career profession, married vs. single status, sexual orientation, and so forth.

With a noticeable gap in post-placement services for Birth Mothers, Destiny Adoption Services intends to close this gap by offering free lifetime counseling to Destiny Birth Mothers in addition to a Birth Mother Support Group that is open for any Birth Mother to join. Post-placement support services for Birth Mothers also include community resource linkage, educational support regarding assistance with entrance applications and applying for financial aid, employment assistance regarding interview tips and résumé writing skills, and many other services.

Our staff at Destiny Adoption Services intends to show up at those important events for our Birth Mothers throughout their lives as a way of honoring them and continuing to assist them in shaping their own destiny in a positive way. At Destiny Adoption Services, we believe that taking care of our Birth Mothers through providing post-placement support is the best gift that we could ever give her child and the adoptive family. Destiny Adoption Services would like to shine the light on the Birth Mother’s perspective of the adoption journey to promote awareness regarding these amazing and courageous Birth Mothers we are honored to serve.
