The Direct Placement Program places newborns who are legally surrendered to the agency with Family Focus approved adoptive families. Birth parents who contact Family Focus are offered counseling by a licensed social worker in a warm, non-judgmental environment. Their options are explored and information is provided about the adoption process. Should the birth parent(s) choose adoption for their baby through Family Focus, they have the option of learning about potential adoptive families, choosing a family, meeting that family, and deciding what part they may want to play in her child's life after adoption.
Children are placed directly from the hospital into their prospective adoptive families without the use of interim placements, thus insuring optimal bonding between the baby and his or her adoptive family. Unique aspects of the program include an agency-created Covenant Ceremony as well as personalized letters to the adoptive child explaining the circumstance of his or her adoption.
