Adoption Program Update

This summer has brought sunshine and adoptive placements to ABC. With two great placements in June, and one in July, we hope to continue helping families grow through adoption. Due to an increase in waiting potential adoptive families through the last couple of years, we have stopped accepting new families that are solely depending on ABC for a placement. This is the first time that ABC has had to limit our waiting families, but we want to give our current waiting families the best possible chance to bring a beautiful adopted child into their loving homes. We stopped accepting new families this Spring, and are hopeful that with our continued placements, we will be able to bring new families into the program again sometime soon. We are forming new relationships with national agencies and trying new strategies to bring potential birth mothers to ABC.  As you may have noticed, there are no longer 2 separate websites for ABC’s counseling program and adoption program. We have launched our new website in July, thanks to a great deal of hard work. If you have any questions about our adoption program, please contact Amanda or Julie at (309) 451-9495, or via email at ablack@abccounseling.org or jmendez@abccounseling.org.
