    Serving the Unique Family

    Macie's Story

    An adoptive family and their daughter's Birth Mother, Summer, share their adoption journey. Baby Macie was born in December at Parker Adventist Hospital supported (served) by the Family to Family Adoption Support Program. With their adoption agency, Hope's Promise, these 2 families share the adoption plan for Baby Macie and how their lives were brought together by the mutual love for this baby girl.

    Mission Statement

    We extend the healing ministry of Christ by compassionately caring for those who are considering, preparing for, or implementing an adoption plan. As a hospital-based program, we nurture each unique adoption experience through the building and fostering of everlasting family relationships, specialty training of our staff and families, and establishing a most exceptional foundation of each individual’s lifelong adoption journey.

    Adoption

    We believe in the love and caring of families who adopt children, and we believe in the generous hearts and enormous love of parents who decide it is best to place their baby for adoption. It is our goal to make sure that the experience for both families is sensitive and caring, combining expert medical care with the utmost compassion and sensitivity. As the only hospital in Colorado offering classes to adoptive parents and support during adoption placements in our The BirthPlace Delivery Unit, our goals include:

    • Supporting families and staff in our BirthPlace during deliveries and placements.
    • Empowering women considering the option of adoption.  
    • Providing an on-site Adoption Liaison as a “point person” to help navigate the hospital time for families, support their wishes and decisions, communicate with their agencies, and assist with completing all paperwork.
    • Providing clear communication between agency social workers and staff members, as well as emotional support for both potential-adoptive parents and patients.
    • Facilitating arrangements and coordination of care for adoptive parents who are able to be present during the hospital time
    • Encouraging and facilitating our staff's education regarding infant adoption, and sensitive care.

    Surrogacy

    We are also a caring and loving place for those pursuing a surrogate arrangement, and acknowledge the complexities and specific needs of these unique families that are not met in a typical hospital experience.

    We believe in the love and caring of ALL families no matter how unique their beginning, We wish to create a most welcoming and supportive environment by:

    • Providing an on-site Adoption Liaison as a “point person” to help navigate the hospital time for families, support their wishes and decisions, communicate with their agencies, and assist with completing all paperwork.
    • Providing accommodations for intended parents, welcoming them onto our unit, and helping their transition to parenthood be as smooth, seamless, and as comfortable as possible.
    • Respecting the wishes of the Gestational Carrier and plans for delivery
    • Encouraging and facilitating our staff's education regarding surrogacy, and sensitive care
    • Providing a tour of the Birthplace to both the Gestational Carrier and Intended Parents, including pre-registration, formulation of a birth plan, and assistance with paperwork to best prepare for the hospital time.

    The Adoption Community

    After humbly serving those who chose adoption for many years, we have come to understand that adoptive and intended parents face many of the same fears, anxieties, and joys that accompany the birth of their child. Your needs are equally as important to us. By working closely with local agencies, we are able to serve adoptive and intended parents by:

    • Providing newborn baby-care classes to adoptive and intended parents in the process of adoption or those that have added to their family via adoption or surrogacy. This class will fulfill the needs of your agency by providing you with 3 hours of hands-on newborn care training.
