At Sunrise Family Services Society, our counselors often receive emails or phone calls with adoption related questions, such as "When should I contact the adoption agency?" The answer is any time, really. We work with women at all different stages of their pregnancy as early as confirmation of the pregnancy all the way up to being called after the child been born. We will work with you at any stage of your decision making process to help you look at your options and make the best plan for you and your baby. If you decide that adoption is not right for you we can refer you to other supports and resources in the community that can assist you. We often get called by hospitals last minute so if you are looking at making that plan at the last stage of your pregnancy it's not a problem - we can meet you wherever you're at and help you then.
