Step Four: Support through Counseling

Adoption entails an incredibly personal and emotional journey. This is why one of the most important aspects of an adoption is counseling. For birthmothers, a counselor is their main line of support, a person they can go to with no agenda other than to help you navigate this emotional time. From working through the decision to adopt in the first place to telling friends and family, or forming a relationship with an adoptive family and coming up with a birth plan,  your counselor will be there to prepare you for each step. At Arizona Adoption Help, we provide the counseling that is essential to Birthparents both before and after the birth of a child.
