What the adoption process looks like:
Welcome to Act of Love Adoptions! Your bravery and courage to figure out the best plan for your unexpected pregnancy has brought you to the right place. We want to help walk you through the 10 steps of the adoption process and show you the many choices you have regarding your pregnancy.
Over the last twenty years, Act of Love has mastered the adoption process and learned the best ways to help you with your unplanned pregnancy. Our focus is to provide you with the best one-on-one personal care and help you find a peace of mind and positive direction for yourself.
“As a birth mom my experience with A Act Of Love was positive. They were able to accommodate my wish to have a social worker who was not of the LDS faith. At the time that was important to me. I have an open adoption and I would never have thought my heartbreak could turn into JOY!” Birth mom Heather
