- If you’re pregnant and not ready to be a parent, you have options!
- Call or text Upbring Adoption in Austin and talk to an adoption counselor. They can explain the adoption process, teach you about varying levels of openness and discuss the financial support you may be eligible to receive during the process.
- If needed, your adoption counselor can also help you talk with your baby’s father about making an adoption plan and explain the details of the process.
- Get to know hopeful adoptive families and, if you choose, meet them in person to see if they are a good fit.

- We’re always here for you. Our post-adoption services can provide ongoing care and support to meet your evolving needs.
“Now my daughter has two families that love her very much!
I chose adoption because I didn’t feel I had an option. I had no help from family or friends and realized after giving birth that there was no way I could do it on my own. When my daughter was six months old she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. I thank God that she was with her adopted family then because they were able to provide her with the best possible care for her condition. I liked the idea of an open adoption where pictures and letters are shared. I held on to the hope that one day we would reunite. The outcome of this experience though has been monumental. I am reunited with my daughter and now my daughter has two families that love her very much!”
