The Adoption Link Mission

For Ohio Birthparents
Adoption Link will not judge or pressure you into making a decision, nor do we charge you for any services. All counseling, support, referrals and legal services will be at no cost to you. Adoption Link will assist you with your medical bills and your pregnancy related living expenses. In Ohio, birthmothers are entitled to receive up to $3,000 for living expenses such as rent, utilities, food, transportation and maternity clothes. We serve all of Ohio and will travel to you.

Adoption Link has helped nearly 1,000 Ohio families adopt children, mostly infants, in an average timeframe of six to eighteen months. We provide pre-adoption support services, adoption education, homestudies, birthparent matching, pre-finalization and post-finalization services. We serve all of Ohio.
Adoption Link Is a Leader in Open Adoption in Ohio
Adoption Link recognizes and advocates the many benefits of open adoption to all the parties involved in adoption. Open adoption results in less grief and promotes better mental health for birthparents. For some birthparents, open adoption promotes understanding between birthparents and adoptive parents regarding their respective roles — enhancing trust, cooperation and information sharing. Open adoption is a blessing to adoptees, who have their important life questions answered.
“As a single mother, facing an unplanned pregnancy, most of the time I felt alone. When I contacted Adoption Link, all of that changed. The social worker from Adoption Link cared about me as well as helped me make a decision regarding my unborn child. Adoption Link has been available to me whenever I needed help. My adoption plan could not have been better, my son is with a family that loves and cares about him. They have left the doors open so that I can have contact with him. Thanks, Adoption Link!”
