How we can Help

Placing a Child for Adoption


We are here for you! Our compassionate and experienced counselors have helped thousands of people explore adoption. Whether you are facing an unplanned pregnancy or considering placing an older child – we are here to help you understand your options and rights. Sometimes adoption counselors are aware of possibilities that you may not have considered.

More than anything else, we are here to listen. Our motto is “our help, your decisions” and these are more than just words for us. Our agency’s mission is not to find children for adoptive parents, it is to help birth mothers and expectant mothers find good homes for their children through adoption.

Our services are confidential and free for birth parents

Your contact with us is kept confidential. ACI respects your right to privacy and your right to explore all options in a trusting environment. Our services are available to you at no cost. And our counselors are available 24 hours a day to answer any questions about adoption – and mainly to listen.

AS AN ILLINOIS ADOPTION AGENCY we understand placing a child for adoption when there is an unplanned pregnancy is the most difficult decision a parent will ever make. Some people say that when a woman or a man considers placing a child for adoption that they are “giving/putting up their baby for adoption.”  This is not the way we see it. The phrase “putting up a child for adoption” or “giving up a baby for adoption” does not reflect what an individual may be actually thinking or feeling in their own situation. We understand that making this decision is hard and can be a major life change. We see adoption as a responsible option to plan and provide for a child’s future. We strive to help parents feel empowered in making the decision that is right for themselves and their child. ACI supports expectant mothers and fathers, and parents of already born children, by listening without judgment. When facing such a difficult decision, no one can tell you what to think or how to feel. We support and encourage mothers and fathers to consider all of your options. We believe it is up to you to decide what is best for your child.
