Unexpected Pregnancy
Our promise is to help you look at all of your options and support YOUR choice.

Dealing with an unplanned pregnancy can feel overwhelming but you don’t have to face it alone.

Carolina Adoption Services works with expectant mothers in North Carolina who are considering adoption. With the CHOICES program, there is the option to have either an open or closed adoption. Our CHOICES coordinator, Sara Nolette, is happy to work with you as you are looking over your options. Please contact Sara at snolette@carolinaadoption.org or at 336-483-4081.

All of our services are free for expecting parents.

We believe adoption is a life-long journey, and we are committed to advocating for the best experience for each member of the adoption triad:  the adoptive family, the birth family and the adopted child.

What is an Open Adoption?

An open adoption is one in which the birth parent and adoptive family have some type of contact either before the adoption, or afterwards. Open adoption can look like many things and can be a good option if you are fearful about the idea of having another family raise your baby and never seeing them again.

Are you interested in meeting the prospective adoptive parents before you give birth?

Would you like to receive pictures and letters or even complete visits with the family after the baby is born?

These are important things to think about as your considering a plan for your baby and we seek to match you with a family who has similar desires so that everyone feels confident in their decision.

Having an open adoption might not just be good for you, but it can also be good for your baby as well. Instead of having questions that may never be answered, your child will be able to know who you are and the important part you have played in their life.

Finding an Adoptive Family

At CAS, all of our prospective families go through a rigorous screening process to ensure that they can provide a safe and loving home to a child. Families go through lots of education before they are approved that teaches them all about what adoption looks like for all people involved, the child, themselves, and the birth family. All of our families are fully committed to adoption and look forward to learning all they can about the person the match with before the baby is ever born.

We seek to provide you with waiting families who have similar desires about adoption as you do. Do you have specific ideas about what a family for your child would look like? Speak to us and we will seek to match you with families who have similar make up and ideals.
