We get that it’s pretty intimidating to pick up the phone and say that you’re thinking of placing your baby for adoption. In fact, it’s probably one of the most difficult calls you’ll ever make. Not to worry. You won’t experience any judgment from us, AND we won’t ask you to fill out piles of forms. There will be lots of questions, but that’s because we want to help you make the best plan possible for you and your baby.

A Friendly Voice on the Other End of the Line
When you call TruAdopt for the first time, you’ll probably speak to our awesome legal assistant, Meghan (sometimes Jill or Celeste, yes, the two attorneys in the office answer the phone as well). We will tell you a little about our practice and explain the basics of what to expect if you decide to place your baby for adoption through our office. Our goal is to thoroughly educate you about adoption, so feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like.

You-Centered Guidance 
If you live in the area, we will set up an appointment for you to come to our office near Los Angeles. If not, we’ll come to you or set up a telephone appointment. The first step is to make sure you’re fully informed about all of your choices and the resources available to you upfront: from options counseling, to medical care, to finding the right family for your child. We also help with very practical needs, like housing and transportation. If we can help, we’ve got you covered.
