What SOS Does for Families at Risk
SOS provides education and information that adoption agencies and other legal professionals may not explain to you. We will provide detailed facts, explaining possible risks, allowing you to make a truly informed choice.
If you love your baby, but just can’t seem to find a way to overcome the challenges you are facing and feel that relinquishing your baby is your only option, SOS will do everything we can to help. We will listen to you and identify realistic solutions to eliminate those challenges, allowing you to focus on successfully parenting your baby without undue pressure.
With Sisters on the Ground in every state, SOS provides experienced one on one support that focuses on the best interest of the family unit that every family member deserves, especially, the unborn baby who will be born wanting and needing only his or her mother.
When I was an overwhelmed teen mom expecting again I felt I had no choice but to let the two babies go when they were born to someone who could give them what I couldn't. I made a permanent choice that could have been navigated otherwise. My family was very dysfunctional and I could not see how we would all survive it. But we did. Now that I have met the two youngest ones I wish with every fiber of my being I had figured out a way to raise them. That's what SOS is about. Not making a permanent choice for temporary situations. If finances are a problem we find help. If you are being coereced by an agency (all of a sudden you have a new best friend) we can help you break loose. If you need parenting classes, counseling or anything within our reach we will help. If you need someone to hold your hand and walk with you as you navigate your way through, we can do that too.
