Adoption Is An Option

Dear "Our Gift of Hope" Visitor,

Over the years, as the Founder of the Several Sources Shelters and now must recently "Our Gift of Hope Sonogram Center" for pregnant women, I have had the opportunity to meet several young pregnant women who thought that they might choose to have their child placed for adoption. In this section of our website we plan to explain the various aspects of adoption which you or someone you know might wish to consider when thinking about an unplanned pregnancy. We will share the views of women who have placed their child  for adoption, children who were adopted and parents who adopted their child. We hope this will help to explain this very beautiful, loving and selfless choice which many young women have made for the child to whom they gave the gift of life.

Did you know that Moses was adopted? His Hebrew Birth Mother Levi, to protect him from harm, thought of a plan to have Moses adopted by the Pharaoh's daughter. Read Exodus Chapter 2, Verses 7-10.

Please return to this page. We will be adding testimonial, photos and important information to it soon.
 
In the meanwhile know that adoption is a loving and beautiful choice for an unplanned pregnancy.
Please pray about the possible decision. Did you know you can choose the couple who ultimately adopts your child? This is called a private adoption. There is much more for us to share with you about adoption.
 
Please be a bit patient as we gather the most important information possible.

Your Sister in Christ Jesus,
