Adoption Support Groups For Birth Mothers in Illinois

We know and understand that you may be going through a tough time emotionally right now and that you may need someone to talk to. With that in mind we have created the following list of adoption related support groups and websites for birth mothers. Each offers something a little different but all of them try to offer support, encouragement, and adoption related information. We hope that the information provided here helps and if you have any additional suggestions on how we can help please do not hesitate to contact us.

You can search these resources listed for Illinois and hopefully will find adoption information and an adoption support group that meets your needs.

Do not be surprised if the list below provides limited adoption support group and support information for a birth mother or birth father. It is just a reflection of the fact that not enough support resources exist.

Additionally, Adoption Services can help you whether you are still pregnancy or if you have already given birth to your child. Please feel free to contact me, Dr. Berger, or call me or the Adoption Services staff toll free, at 1(800)943-0400, and we will be glad to personally help you.
