Adoption Choices of Colorado will provide court approved living expenses for birth mothers who need the help. We can help with expenses such as rent, utilities, food, sundries, and your phone bill. We understand how difficult it is to get back on your feet and return to work after delivering a baby and we want to help you as much as possible. Depending on your State of residence, the amount of court approved expenses may vary.

Post-Placement Support for Choosing Adoption
After years and years of grief, loss and depression, one woman started to write and share her experiences and overtime a small community of birth mothers and friends gathered and started to share a voice. That group started to grow into one of most respected online support groups. What they discovered was a powerful connection of understanding, love and hope for healing.This was such a foreign concept and perspective given the tradition, shame, generation gaps and society ignorance on the topic of adoption. It was refreshing and craved nation wide.
Adoption Choices of Colorado has partnered with Lifetime Healing, LLC to provide Post Placement Support Groups for Birth Mothers! We are excited to be giving birth mothers support after placement whether they have placed 3 weeks ago, 13 months ago, or 25 years ago. We are offering a monthly support group in Golden on the first Thursday of each month and in Colorado Springs the second Tuesday of each month! For more information check out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/adoptionchoicesofcolorado/ or contact Christy Ikeler at 720-371-1099.
Lifetime Healing, LLC. is a result of this small group of women. After supporting countless women all over the country we took all our of our experience and education and created the first ever post placement curriculum to build lasting and concrete support groups for women that choose to place their children for adoption. In doing so, we are holding the professionals accountable in standing with the birth mothers for life. If they are going to stand with them in the destruction than ethics would assume that they stand with them in the rebuild. We are the standard for ethical post placement care for birth mothers.
