   Babies Who Need Homes
 

At Adoption Facilitation Services, our goal is to find every child a loving home.        
Below you'll find the birthmoms we are currently working with.  Each birthmother is first introduced to families who have signed with us.  

Sometimes, however, we have birthmothers who are not a good fit with our existing couples. In those situations, we open our search to families across the country.

If you are interested in learning more about our adoption program, click here and fill out a brief form. Our website will instantly send you in-depth answers to many common questions, such as the cost of an adoption and how long it takes, on average, to complete a successful adoption.
