Making an adoption plan for her baby may be one of the greatest gifts a mother is able to give her child. When an unplanned pregnancy becomes a reality, it may bring with it a great deal of stress and difficulty for the mother. Adoption is a beautiful and selfless decision that many women make when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. At Illini Christian Ministries, it is our goal to assist women in knowing the life-giving options available to them, amongst those being adoption. We walk alongside the women and support them as they work through their pregnancy and towards an adoption plan.
When making an adoption plan, there are many options available to you. You are able to choose the adoptive family for your child; you are able to choose how much contact you have with the adoptive family; you are able to choose how much time that you will spend with the baby in the hospital; you are even able to name your child if you choose to do so. Your supportive and compassionate caseworker will be available to assist you every step of the way.
