Adoption is a brave choice


is a BRAVE choice

You know you are not ready to be a parent...but you also don't think abortion is for you. 


Adoption could be the right choice.


Making an adoption plan for the child you are carrying allows you to make the best plans possible for your life and the life of the child.

It is perfectly OK to be worried about your financial stability, family situation and future plans. Adoption is a viable option for women facing an unplanned pregnancy.

Did you know that throughout the adoption process, YOU are in control?

There are many families
ready and willing to financially support and raise a child in a loving and stable home. A lot of families are unable to grow their family biologically. Your pregnancy could be the answer to someone’s prayers.


Studies indicate that for every one abortion in the U.S., there are at least two couples looking to adopt. The choice is in your hands.


When you make an adoption plan, you choose the family that will raise the child. Plus, you decide how much or how little involvement you will have in the life of the child as it grows. You have the right to create the plan that works for you and your life.

When you set up an appointment with The Refuge Center, our trained client advocates will try to answer any questions you may have. If you feel adoption is best for you, we will provide you with referrals to local reputable adoption agencies. These compassionate agencies have many years of experience helping women make an adoption plan and will walk with you hand in hand through the process and beyond.

Schedule an appointment with one of our caring staff members. We will sit with you and have a confidential conversation about your options. You have time to think and make the choice that works for your individual situation.

  • How do I earn items for my baby through the Practical Parenting Classes?
    When you register​ for class, participate in the lesson, submit the lesson homework and other simple tasks, you can earn points that can be redeemed in our Buttons & Bows Boutique, located here at The Refuge Center.
  • Is this class only for first time moms and dads?
    No. Some of our clients already have a child or two. But we have heard that they wish they had taken this class the first time around! But first time parents definitely find the information and lessons extremely beneficial.
  • Are the classes conducted in person or online?
    Currently our Practical Parenting classes are offered online through Brightcourse. (Think of it as Netflix for parenting help). However, to redeem your points for baby care items you will need to set up an in-person shopping appointment with our parenting coordinators.
  • How do I enroll in the Practical Motherhood or Practical Fatherhood course?
    Simply click here and fill out a short form. One of our instructors will contact you within ten business days to set up an orientation and get you started.
  • How long can we be enrolled in the program and earn points?
    You may begin earning points during your pregnancy. The Practical Parenting program has many lessons that can carry you from pregnancy to toddlerhood and beyond. However, due to storage space in our boutique, we have items available for birth to 1 year old babies. Once your child has turned 1 year old and you are no longer earning points, you can still request access to the valuable lessons that our video provides. If you still need material assistance, you can make an appointment to receive a distribution of gently used baby items for your family.
  • Do you have everything that I will need for my baby available in the Boutique?
    All of the items we distribute are provided by the generosity of the community. Therefore, all items are subject to availability. Supplies change weekly.
