   Babies Who Need Homes
 

At Adoption Facilitation Services, our goal is to find every child a loving home.
Below you'll find the birthmoms who are currently working with us.  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 one of our birthmothers or would like more information about our adoption program, contact us by phone at (925) 938-6600.



You can also email Dr. Kors at nhk@adopt-now.com.




You'll find answers to many question about adoption, including the cost of an adoption and how long it takes to complete a successful adoption, in our Letter to Prospective Adoptive Parents.

Caucasian/Hispanic/Samoan/Hawaiian or
Caucasian/Hispanic/Samoan/Hawaiian/African-American baby, due in April

This will be Sally's eighth baby. Six of her children are living with a relative. They are all in excellent health and developing normally. The seventh baby was relinquished through our practice last year, and that family is not interested in adopting another baby at this time but would like to stay in touch with the family that adopts their daughter's full sibling.

Sally has chosen adoption because she is not financially or emotionally capable of raising a child at this time in her life. Sally is currently in jail for possession of drugs with the intent to sell.

She will be released from jail in January, and then we will be able to take her for an ultrasound to determine the baby's gender and get comprehensive medical information.

Sally's last baby is beautiful. We will send families interested in working with her a photo of that baby. Sally is not interested in contact after the baby is born, but she is open to being contacted by the child when he or she wants to know more about her.

Mandy                             Matched                                      

Guamanian/Hispanic boy due 1-16-17

                                                                                              



Mandy is a very pretty young lady, 21 years old, 5' tall, 135 lbs., with hazel eyes and dark hair. Her parents are from Guam.

She is athletic, played softball in high school, and was on the gymnastics team. She is very musical, has an excellent voice, and loves dancing. She had a very difficult childhood and wants to make sure her baby goes to loving parents who will give the baby a happy life. It is most important to her that the family she chooses believes in never spanking their children. They need to be loving and kind.

Mandy does smoke a few cigarettes a day, more when she is stressed, and only one or two when she is not. She has been homeless and sleeping on the streets for many days during the pregnancy. Our office has supported her, so she has not needed to sleep outdoors during these cold winter months, but it is essential that we find a family for this baby immediately, so he does not end up in foster care. Mandy used methamphetamines during the first four months of her pregnancy. She used it daily before she knew she was pregnant (first two months), then cut down drastically once she knew she was pregnant. Mandy was off meth completely by the fifth month, and we have two drug tests to confirm that she has completely stopped using illegal substances. She has not used any alcohol for the past two years.

Mandy has a toddler who does not live with her. She is not in a position to raise a child at this time in her life.

The birthfather, Luke, is of Hispanic descent. Luke and Mandy are married, and he agrees with the adoption plan and will sign all the papers. Luke is currently unemployed, and neither Mandy nor Luke are able to find employment at this time.

Mandy and Luke are open to all types of families: single moms, gay and lesbian families, and traditional parents. Initially they did not want to have any contact with the adoptive family but have decided to ask for photos and emails just in case they want them in the future.

Catherine and her boyfriend Jason have three young children who are currently living with Catherine's mom because they cannot afford to raise the children at this time. The couple believes that adoption is best, as it will provide more opportunities for this baby and will allow them to concentrate on getting off welfare, so they can raise their three children.

Jason is Caucasian, 44 years old, 5' 10" tall, 175 lbs., with blue eyes and brown hair. He is on board with the adoption and will sign all the necessary paperwork.
