I'm Expecting and Exploring Adoption

Exploring Adoption

Expectant parents who are exploring adoption as an option have lots of questions. It is important to know that you can ask these questions without fear or pressure. Expectant parents can call either a private adoption licensee or a local Children’s Aid Society to explore the options and ask questions before making a decision. You will be given information and assistance from a birth parent counsellor who will not pressure or sway your decision. The birth parent counsellor is responsible for ensuring you have an understanding of all the options available to you, including parenting the child.

Next Steps

If you are interested in adoption as an option contact an adoption licensee or your local Children’s Aid Society to discuss this option further. Remember, you will not be pressured to make any immediate decisions by making these calls. You may wish to read the Memorandum for Birth Parents for a more in depth understanding about the process. If you have any questions about the process or questions about the information here you can call the ACO at 416-482-0021.
