ADOPTING FAMILIES

Why choose us?

  •  We are a Maine based 501-­3c nonprofit organization providing adoption services. We provide support services to both pregnant women, and to those who want to adopt.  Our caring staff offers excellent support and services stemming from their professional training, education, and personal experiences as adoptive parents, and adopted children.  Call and schedule an appointment to meet our staff and discover how we can help you.

How are we different?

  •  How are we different than other adoption services? A lawyer will not be at the side of the birthmother during birth. Agencies outside of Maine may not even ever meet you in person. We are physically present through the whole process. Every adoption is different and each couple needs are different. We take into consideration the child, the birthparents AND the adoptive family.

Information about Adopting a Baby who has been substance exposed

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)

Information from the March of Dimes

NAS is a group of conditions caused when a baby withdraws from certain drugs (most often opioids) he’s exposed to in the womb before birth.

Most babies with NAS get treatment in the hospital after birth. Most babies who get treatment get better in a few days or weeks.

MotherToBaby

MotherToBaby, a service of the non-profit Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS), is the nation’s leading authority and most trusted source of evidence-based information on the benefit or risk of medications and other exposures during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. We specialize in answering questions about the benefit/risk of exposures, such as medications, vaccines, chemicals, herbal products, substances of abuse, maternal health conditions and much more, during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
