The birth parent is the most courageous person involved in any adoption. Choosing adoption is not easy, not at the time of placement nor years later. What happens in an adoption, how do you get through the experience, and how does it affect you later in life?
These are questions our experienced staff can discuss with you. We want you to know that you are not alone. Many others have felt the same feelings and had the same experiences as you.
If you are considering adoption please call our Hope Line at 816-916-4434.
The LIGHT House has been helping birth parents connect with adoptive families for over 20 years. Our experienced staff can provide personal attention and support during this exciting yet challenging time.
