As the needs of our expectant and birth parents grow, so do our services. Today, we are doing more ‘open adoptions’ than ever before.
Newton, MA (PRWEB) November 13, 2015
November is National Adoption Month and in spirit of its wake, Adoptions With Love is delighted to announce its 30th anniversary as a private, non-profit adoption agency in Massachusetts. Their team of professional, compassionate adoption experts invites all to celebrate this occasion by sharing your own adoption stories with them.
In April of 1986, Adoptions With Love was licensed as an adoption agency. In August 1986, the first placement was made, marking the first chapter of Adoption With Love’s story. Since then, over 1900 infants have been placed in loving, devoted homes—and the story does not end there. Since 2001, the helm of Adoptions With Love has been steered by Amy S. Cohen, Executive Director and Nancy Rosenhaus, Associate Director, making this agency even more successful in assisting birth mothers, adoptive families, and adopted children. Adoptions With Love is honored to be a part of their lives, and to continue their dedicated work for each person touched by the act of adoption in the past, present, and future.
Adoption has changed greatly since the inception of Adoptions With Love in 1986. In the past, the majority of adoptions were closed. When making their adoption plan, expectant parents and adoptive parents exchanged limited information. There was no option for ongoing communication or open adoption.
Amy Cohen explains, “We have had to change as adoption has changed. As the needs of our expectant and birth parents grow, so do our services. Today, we are doing more ‘open adoptions’ than ever before. That kind of placement was not available to most birth mothers thirty, even fifteen, years ago.”
“We still do this work day in and day out, for people who came to Adoptions With Love thirty years ago and for those who came to us just yesterday,” says Nancy Rosenhaus. The agency’s vibrant search and reunion program is a great part of that success. “We always enjoy hearing about the children that we placed, or getting updates from the women we have worked with in the past. The beauty of our agency is the commitment that we have to our families. That is something that will never change.”
As the years have passed and the adoption process itself has transformed, Adoptions With Love is proud to say that they have experienced its changes firsthand. The agency has achieved three decades of growth and professionalism for all parties in the triad of adoption. They have witnessed babies mature into young adults, and watched families grow. They have seen birth mothers heal, move forward, and succeed. They will continue to offer guidance to each person that chooses to work with Adoptions With Love.
Adoptions With Love will commemorate their 30th anniversary with a number of events throughout the course of next year. The family celebration will take place in September 2016.
