August Plans

Nine babies joined their adoptive families in the month of August after their birth mothers lovingly followed through with their plans for adoption.  Some of these birth mothers had adoption planning in place early in their pregnancy and worked with one of AAI's pregnancy caseworkers for several weeks, selecting a family through agency profiles.  A few others crossed paths with the adoptive couple and then came to AAI to request help in facilitating their adoption plan.  One of our August birth mothers was courageous enough to recognize after just giving birth that adoption was the best plan for her baby even though she had no plans in place.  She placed her little one through the Safe Delivery of Newborns law with one of our waiting families.  Profile matches, networking and gift babies were all a part of August plans.
