In 1981, a group of adoptive parents and adoption professionals joined together to form Adoption Options, a 501 (c) (3) licensed child placement agency. The mission was then and is now to provide non-sectarian adoption services for Colorado residents. To date, Adoption Options has placed over 1,800 children. Currently, Adoption Options employs 24 full- and part-time staff. Approximately 45 hours are volunteered by members of the community every month.
Central to Adoption Options’ service for our domestic infant program is its counseling program for women and couples who are considering adoption as an option for a crisis pregnancy. Through this program, Adoption Options counsels over 250 birth parent clients a year. Qualified counselors provide objective, sensitive and supportive counseling for birth parents throughout the lengthy decision-making and emotion-healing process…regardless of the birth parent’s final choice.
Adoption Options has a Flexible Families Program that seeks to place children from the child welfare system into safe and stable families. After placement, a team of professionals works to ensure that families have adequate resources and services to promote success for the child and the family.
