Birthparents and Families
As part of our mission to help all those touched by adoption, Adoption Network Cleveland recognizes the lifelong impact of adoption if you are a birthparent or a birth family member. The loss of a child to adoption leaves a profound void. This experience is life-changing for all involved. The need for support, understanding and a safe place to deal with feelings that resurface is acknowledged and provided for by our organization.
Adoption Network Cleveland offers support, information and referrals to you as a birthparent, siblings or if you are considering an adoption plan for your child. Services include the following:
- Our Adoption Helpline is a place where birthparents and family members can find support and answers to their questions. Call (216) 325-1000.
- General Support and Discussion Meetings are held in four locations each month in Northeast Ohio. These groups are open to anyone touched by adoption or interested in lifelong adoption issues.
- Search Assistance for birthparents or family members interested in searching for their now adult child or sibling. We have helped hundreds of birthparents and family members search and reunite with adult adult sons, daughters and/or siblings.
