Open adoption involves direct contact and communication between the birth family and adoptive family. We are big proponents of open adoption. This not only benefits the child, but both sets of parents. Attachment and a sense of belonging are tremendously important to any human. We grow these relationships through regular video chats, in-person visits, connection events and more.


The process of adopting comes with its challenges. Shared Beginnings aims to provide information, education and support to families hoping to adopt.

As an expectant and birth mom support organization, we function a bit differently than most agencies. 


If you are interested in being selected by an expectant mom we are helping, please contact us through the inquiry form below. We will send you information on our process and fees and answer any questions you may have.

We dream of a world where every adoption is ethical and every voice is heard so we encourage you to ask the hard questions as you select an agency.
