SHARED CONNECTIONS IS COMING UP ON JULY 26th & 27th!

FAMILIES LOOK DIFFERENT THAN THEY DID 30 YEARS AGO...

PARENTING OPTIONS

At Shared Beginnings, we want to empower you with different parenting options. We understand the importance of having all the information and support you need to make a decision. Ultimately, our goal is to help you make the decision that is right for you and your family. As you navigate this important decision, we offer insights into three distinct options: open adoption, kinship care, and traditional parenting.

KINSHIP
CARE

This parenting option involves a relative or close family friend stepping in to provide care and support for a child, often within the extended family network.

OPEN ADOPTION

 This parenting option provides a unique opportunity for birth parents and adoptive families to maintain connections and communication, fostering a sense of shared identity and ongoing relationships. 

TRADITIONAL PARENTING

This parenting option offers a familiar path of raising a child within one’s own family unit, with no formal adoption process involved.

 

Whatever parenting path you choose, our aim is to empower you with information and support as you embark on this transformative journey of parenthood.
