The love you have for your child is immense – so immense, in fact, that you may have started thinking about making one of the most difficult decisions of your life. Giving a child up for adoption can be one of the most loving decisions you can make for your child.

There are many reasons why a mother might come to this decision.  Whatever the reason, it doesn’t mean you love your child any less.  It means you love your child so much that you want to ensure that his or her life is full of the necessities and luxuries that you feel you cannot provide.


For women in your position, there is hope.  Regardless of where you are in your pregnancy, and whatever the reason, it is never too late to choose adoption. This choice does not signal that you are weak or “giving up” in any way.  In fact, many women who choose adoption are wonderful mothers; by choosing adoption, you can provide your child with loving parents, endless opportunities and a happy life — and that is what great mothers do.

Bethesda House is an option for mothers who are considering adoption.  You are invited to stay at Bethesda House, where we will help you through your pregnancy and the adoption process, assisting you to play an important role in giving your child the best chance at the life you hope for him or her. Your length of stay is determined on an individual basis and will be determined during the intake process. You will get the same abundance of care as any other mother who comes to live with us.

If you are considering adoption, please contact Missy Porter, or 781-361-2418 directly before completing an application.
