In order to carry out our core value “the best well-being of a child is within a family-environment”, we set up the Family Service Team in 2007, which focuses offering services to birth families. We hope to integrate and employ all of our resources and social resources to fully extend our assistance to the birth family, and help them clarify and understand their decision.
We respect any decision made by an individual or family who seeks our help – whether it is to put the child up for adoption or to have the birth family keep the child – and provide the service suitable for them. Together with the birth family, we will thoroughly discuss their decision, the visions of domestic or international adoption, and the possible developments after making the decision.
We support and encourage the birth family to keep the child. Without giving up the possibility of the birth family keeping the child, we will help the birth family enhance its connection with the child, while understanding whether they would like to keep the child. In reality, however, many families cannot help but deciding to put their children up for adoption because of personal, family, and social reasons. After an adoption decision is made, our Domestic Adoption Team and International Adoption Team will kick off the adoption procedure (with two social workers jointly providing service in the process of adoption), as we continue to provide relevant service to the birth family. In our every visit to a birth family, we will encourage them to maintain contact with the child and hope to help the family face the adoption decision and prepare for separation, so as to secure the best interests of the child, the birth family, and the adoptive family in the process of adoption.
Objects of Service: Pregnant unwed woman; individual or family seeking adoption or any adoption of child that becomes necessary after interview and evaluation.
