Hello! We are Abby and Tony! We are honored that you are interested in learning more about us as prospective parents.

Our story together started on a Tuesday, but more specifically, a Taco Tuesday! Tony and his roommates hosted a weekly taco dinner for friends, and this time, Abby was invited to attend by a mutual friend. We hit it off over the guacamole and decided to have coffee the next week. We made a connection that Abby was applying to guide youth backpacking trips at the same camp in Colorado that Tony had spent the last few summers working at. That summer, we had the opportunity to guide a trip together and realized that we made a pretty good team! Our love continued to grow back at home in Indianapolis as we continued going on adventures around town. We were engaged within the year and married the next summer in June of 2016.

We both work with youth and have been excited about starting a family of our own for a few years. Two years ago, we decided to become foster parents. We have had the beautiful opportunity to provide a temporary home for children in the past. We loved the experience of coming alongside the birth parents while the children were in our care. Now, we are hoping to start a forever family through open adoption and are excited for you to be a part of that!

Financial Support

Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.

Weekend Camping Trip Fun!

08/08/2022

We love being outside! We went with a friend to a state park over the weekend to use her vintage (but new to her!) camper. The Midwest humidity was pretty terrible, but we had a fun time around the campfire and walking some of the trails.
