Planning for your baby is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. At DePelchin, we realize that this can often be a lonely and difficult decision. We’re here for you and want you to succeed in making the right choices for you and your baby. Through our infant adoption program, we work to match birth mothers and fathers with loving families in the Greater Houston area who are eager to welcome an infant into their lives.

Support for Birth Parents

DePelchin guides and supports birth mothers, fathers and their families through each step of the adoption journey. We help birth parents understand their options, including placing their baby for adoption, so that they can make informed decisions about their lives and the life of their child. Our FREE support services include:

  • Comprehensive case management to explore all parenting options
  • Assistance in obtaining community resources during your pregnancy
  • Guidance in selecting an adoptive family for your baby
  • Guidance in determining the level of communication with the adoptive family
  • Support at the time of birth and during your hospital stay if requested
  • Counseling during pregnancy and following the adoption
