Northern Michigan’s News Leader

Michigan’s 9 & 10 News shares Catholic Human Service’s unique adoption program. This open adoption program chooses to focus on what is ultimately best for the birth mother and her baby. A change of heart can happen within the birth mother at any time.  And that change of heart has to be respected because this particular agency allows it.

When the birth mother does experience a “change of heart” it unfortunately leads to confused emotions and heartbreaking pain — especially for the adoptive parents who have been waiting and waiting for a child. With up to six weeks after the child’s birth to change her mind, birth mothers are well supported by the agency.
