Adoption Agency Support in Missouri

In many of the things that we do, we often look for support from others. Having the right kind of support around us can lessen the burden of emotional decisions or ease the process of starting something new. In short, it makes us feel safe and secure.

If you are a birth mother in Missouri, you are likely making plans for your adoption journey. It is natural to be curious about the adoption agency support that Adoption Choices of Missouri has to offer.

We understand that there are a lot of costs associated with pregnancy. Our adoption agency can offer financial support on an as-needed basis. Your adoption caseworker will work with you to determine your eligibility. The wonderful news is that we offer financial assistance in a number of different ways.

Financial Support for Rent and Utilities during Your Adoption

Having a home with working utilities is necessary for a healthy and comfortable pregnancy. If you are having difficulties paying your bills, you can speak with your adoption caseworker to see if you are eligible for financial support in this area.

Paying rent and utility bills on time will ensure that some of your most basic needs are met, so that you are able to focus on caring for your child. Pregnancy is a long journey and requires a healthy amount of sleep and rest. We know how important it is to have a stable place to call home and will work hard to support you in this area.

Assistance with Groceries throughout Your Adoption Journey

Nutrition plays an important part in the development and health of your child. It is necessary to feed yourself enough food to keep you full and nourish your baby. Choosing whole, fresh foods that are high in nutrients will be your best option. If you don’t have the funds to reliably provide enough food for yourself during your pregnancy, you might be able to receive assistance with your grocery bills. Check in with your adoption caseworker to explore this option in detail.

Financial Assistance with Transportation Fees during Your Adoption Process

We understand that it may be necessary for you to travel during your unplanned pregnancy. You might need to commute to work or school. You will have frequent visits to the doctors to check on the health of you and your baby. Wherever you are going, we want to help you get there. If you need some help covering the costs of your transportation fees, please communicate that with your adoption caseworker.

Maternity Clothing throughout Your Pregnancy

As your body changes to make room for your baby, your clothes will need to change too. If you are eligible, we are happy to help cover the cost of new maternity clothes throughout your pregnancy. Finding clothes that fit properly will help keep you comfortable as your baby grows.
