FLS believes that access to on-going counseling and support is vital to a birthparent’s ability to move through the grieving process and build a healthy relationship with the adoptive family after an adoption placement. Face-to-face counseling or telephone counseling with an adoption caseworker is available for any birthparent who placed a child through our agency at any point following an adoption for an unlimited duration. To schedule an individual counseling appointment, contact the agency directly by phone or email.
We host an FLS Birth Mother Gathering annually for ladies to come together and enjoy a day together to share experiences and move a little further along the journey of healing. Details will be posted to the events page
Because many of the birthparents we have worked with do not live within a close geographical distance to the agency, there is a confidential, internet-based, virtual support group for FLS birthparents. If you would like to be invited to join the FLS Birth Mothers or FLS Birth Fathers online groups, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can connect you to join the conversation between birthparents from various stages of the post-adoption journey.
