At St. Elizabeth Foundation, we understand the complexity and emotions involved in the decision of placing a child for adoption. Our mission is to help birth mothers find people looking to adopt in Shreveport, providing a supportive environment throughout the process. Learn more about the adoption process, what choices are available to you, and how our team at St. Elizabeth Foundation can help.

Understanding the Adoption Process

Adoption is a journey of love and selflessness. It involves making decisions for the betterment of your child’s life. When you’re ready to begin this journey, we are here to guide you through the process. 

Your Choices Matter

Each adoption story is unique and deeply personal. Therefore, we offer multiple adoption options to cater to your needs and comfort. The choice is yours, from open adoptions that foster direct communication with the adoptive family to closed adoptions that preserve complete privacy.

  • Open Adoption: A method where you maintain direct contact with the adoptive family, fostering a deeper connection with your child.
  • Semi-Open Adoption: This option allows limited, mediated contact with the adoptive family, balancing connectivity and privacy.
  • Closed Adoption: In this pathway, there’s no contact post-adoption, which some birth mothers may prefer.

There’s no universal right choice. We encourage birth mothers to select the option best for them and their children. 

How To Find the Right People Looking To Adopt in Shreveport

Birth mothers have the power to choose the family that will provide the best future for their children. The preferences of birth mothers vary significantly, and so do the profiles of potential adoptive families. 

With St. Elizabeth Foundation, you can explore a range of family profiles to find people looking to adopt in Shreveport that align with your preferences. In their profiles, you can learn about how the couple met, their lifestyles, family life, and other essential details that can help you envision this future for your child. 

While choosing the right potential adoptive parents, remember you’re not alone. We’re here, ready to guide you through each profile, helping you understand the nuances and aligning them with your hopes for your child’s future. Your choice matters, and we’re committed to ensuring it’s informed.

Creating Your Personalized Adoption Plan

Every birth mother has a unique story, and every adoption journey is different. We work closely with you to create a personalized adoption plan. This includes planning for the labor and delivery experience you want to have and providing free counseling services throughout the entire process—even after placement.
