"What I said and what I wanted was honored and respected ... Services were offered equally to both me and the birthmother. We liked the program because it gave us a way to be a part of our son's life. If it hadn't included that option, we wouldn't have chosen adoption. We wanted to see him grow up. We wanted him to know us."

"We just really appreciate the transparency in the entire process, support throughout, and openness and info available to us and the child. Also, we really value your stance on diversity and dedication to your mission."

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?
