"OA&FS has shaped our lives in many ways and we are truly thankful for all the work you do. I know you probably hear it at placement a lot, but we wanted to give our sincerest thanks while still in the process. You have a difficult job and everyone at the agency has always handled the pressure with such grace. It's truly a special place and we are very glad to be a part of it."

Benny & Wright, Adoptive Parents

"There really is no comparison. OA&FS is so unique in so many ways."

Seminar Attendee

Our pregnancy options counseling is free, confidential, and nonjudgmental.  We’re here to provide support and unbiased information as you determine what’s best for you.


How does counseling help?

Counseling offers you a safe place to explore all of your options. We’re here to empower you with the information you need to make the choice that feels best to you. We are honored to offer you compassion, understanding and respect.

What makes us different from most adoption agencies is that we are here to support you no matter what decision you make. We are a non-profit, pro-choice agency not affiliated with any religion, and will treat you with dignity and respect. If you'd like to meet a counselor in person, we have offices in Portland, Eugene and Seattle or we're happy to come to you.

What to expect during pregnancy options counseling.

An OA&FS counselor will listen and provide support as you consider each of your choices: parenting, abortion or adoption. You’ll explore questions such as:

  • How would each choice affect my everyday life?
  • How do each of the choices fit with my values and beliefs?
  • What would each choice mean to the people closest to me?
  • Who can I count on to support me through this process?
  • What are my plans for the future?
