Do you have a parenting resource for expectant or new moms that you would like to share with the page?

If you are sending a link to a Crisis Pregnancy Center or Maternity Home, please click here.

For all other resources, in order for the page to remain efficient and timely, have you first checked to see if this resource is already listed? If not, please find the respective state and verify here.

Crisis Pregnancy Centers and Maternity Homes

Organizations that promote or encourage unnecessary family separation via adoption services will not be accepted. This includes Crisis Pregnancy Centers/Maternity Homes that tell their clients that Open Adoptions are legally enforceable. This is fraud and cannot be shared with vulnerable populations. Any language such as; “You choose the family,” “You choose how much contact you have with your child,” or “You choose the timing of placement” are all problematic and misinformed. Please refer to the “Know Your Rights” section on the Experience page.

Are you an expectant or new mom who is in need of parenting resources?

In order for the page to remain efficient and timely, have you first checked to see if resources in your location are already listed? If not, please find the respective state and verify here.

Are you considering placing your baby for adoption?

It is important to make an informed decision in order to save yourself and your child(ren) unneccessary lifelong trauma.

Visit the Experience page that offers studies on adoptees, birth mothers, and the effects of maternal separation. Learn about your lack of rights in an “open” adoption. Most adoption professionals and crisis pregnancy centers today promote open adoptions without providing information about legal rights and/or various complexities.

Visit the Voices page that offers lived experiences of adoptees and birth moms through mediums like podcasts, blogs, and various social media platforms.

Complete an intake form with the only birthmom-led adoption education non-profit Saving Our Sisters. (Following this link leads outside of The Family Preservation Project)

About The Family Preservation Project

Katie Burns is a birth mother of over 2 decades. After observing and connecting with other mothers who had relinquished their babies for adoption, it was obvious to her that most did so out of temporary crisis rather than not wanting to parent their children. Many mothers lack social support and are unaware of available resources in their area. This page was created to offer support and encouragement by providing connections between mothers and those resources.
