Are you experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and worried about being judged? Have you considered adoption but wonder if the adoptive parents will think badly of you because you aren’t able to parent your child? Here is the truth: birth mothers are heroes!
Your decision to choose life for your child says so much about your character and strength. Instead of taking the easy way out and terminating your pregnancy, you chose to nurture the innocent life of a precious child.
Your decision may have cost you, but you did it anyway. Your loving, brave choice makes you a hero – to your child and to the adoptive family you choose to parent the child. This part of your journey may have been unexpected, but through your selflessness and God’s grace, it can lead to a beautiful future for you, for your child, and for the adoptive family. You, dear one, are our hero!
Do you share information updates with your child’s birth family? Have you considered allowing your child to be a part of that process?
We encourage you to allow your child to participate in sending updates to their birth family. Our birth parent clients tell us that the most prized updates they receive are those written or made directly from their child.
Try including some of your child’s schoolwork, artwork and a handwritten letter from them in the next update you send. It will be cherished by their birth family.
At Colorado Christian Services, we know adoption can be confusing, especially during an unplanned pregnancy.
We are here to help you sort out the details so you can make the best choice for you and your child. The more informed you are about adoption, the more confident you will feel in your specific, personalized adoption plan. While there are many aspects to consider, one of the most basic is how much interaction and communication you will have with the child once he or she is placed with an adoptive family.
- Open adoption allows you the most interaction. You will have ongoing visits with the child and will be able to build relationships with both the child and the adoptive family.
- Less open, or semi-open, adoption provides information with less direct interaction. This type of agreement allows you to stay informed about the child’s life through pictures, letters, and phone calls.
- Closed adoption is another option. This type of agreement means you will not have any direct contact after the child is placed with an adoptive family.
Your Colorado Christian Services caseworker can help you consider which type of adoption agreement works best for you. Each adoption is unique, and you get to choose a plan that works best for all involved. You will always be special to your child and adoptive family, no matter what type of adoption you choose, and the decision is in your hands. You can call or text a caseworker 24/7 to learn more: 303-246-1674.
Even if you are not able to parent your child, you do not give up all choices regarding this precious one.
Instead, we will work with you to create an adoption plan that best suits both you and the child. You can choose an open adoption that allows you to maintain a relationship with your child and the adoptive family. You also get to choose from many loving, carefully assessed adoptive families. CCS uses the Structured Analysis Family Evaluation (SAFE) to evaluate all adoptive families, so you can rest assured your child will be going to caring parents who have been thoroughly screened.

There is an element of vulnerability once a match is formed.
The adoptive parents open themselves up to the expectant mother in hopes that she makes an adoption plan. They invest in her, build a relationship with her, and love her, without knowing what she will ultimately decide.
Sometimes that decision is to parent her child. And so, the adoptive family will grieve; the loss of the relationship with her and the loss of the opportunity to parent her child.
The staff at Colorado Christian Services walks with our hopeful families through the ups and downs of the adoption process. We are with you every step of the way; crying with you during the failures and celebrating with you during the joys. Additionally, we remain a place of support for the expectant mother; helping her be the best mother she can to her child.

When an unplanned pregnancy occurs, you may feel confused and overwhelmed. The good news is you do not have to go through this pregnancy alone. Colorado Christian Services is here to help.
When you contact CCS about choosing adoption, an experienced, supportive caseworker will walk you through the process, including the creation of an adoption plan.
An adoption plan is a detailed plan you craft to meet your specific adoption needs. It will include:
✅ The type of family you hope to find for your child:
Do you want a large family with other adopted children? Do you want your child to be the first child in the family? Would you like your child to live in the city or the country? You can be as specific as you want to be in your adoption plan.
✅ The amount and type of contact you would like to have after adoption:
Would you like to have the family send pictures and letters on a regular basis? Do you want to have an ongoing in-person relationship with the child and family? Your caseworker will discuss options and help you choose what makes you most comfortable.
✅ Details of the delivery and time in the hospital:
Although you may not have considered the delivery and hospital stay, this is an important part of your plan. Do you want specific family members or friends with you? Do you want the adoptive family in the delivery room? Would you like time alone with your baby? Your caseworker will help you navigate every detail and make sure your wishes are honored.
With over 55 years of experience in adoption, Colorado Christian Services understands the importance of a detailed adoption plan. We use our knowledge and experience to provide you with information and resources to help you make the best decision for your unique circumstances, and your dedicated caseworker walks with you every step of this journey to ensure you have support.
