Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach, Inc. is a Christian, non-profit organization founded in 1997 with a three-fold mission:
To provide support services to those experiencing unplanned pregnancies
To promote Christian parenting.
To promote adoption as a loving alternative.
Our motivation is to encourage women to choose life for their babies and to help women make sound parenting decisions. The object in mind is the children - it is our heart's desire to see children raised in loving, nurturing homes.
The support services of APO have been in existence since 1998. We feel that if we are going to encourage a woman to choose life for her baby that we should also provide any means necessary to help her through her difficult times.
Support services for birthparents are the heart of APO.
Adoption services were added in 2002 because some expectant parents feel that placing their child in an adoptive home is the best parenting decision they can make. Our adoption program exists because of our pregnancy support program. We see our adoptive families as a resource for our birthfamilies - not the other way around. We are convinced that this is the most ethical model in which to offer our services.
Being a Christian organization, our waiting-to-adopt families have a love for Jesus Christ and base their lives on the principals laid forth in the Bible. When it comes to adoption, we believe that children are very honored in the open adoption format. We recognize that some birth families and adoptive families may be uncomfortable with the idea of open adoption. We ask that you allow us an opportunity to tell you the truths of what open adoption is and dispel myths of what it is not. (see adoption information for birthparents at www.PregnancyOutreach.org)
We understand that when a birthparent is seeking the best outcome for an unplanned pregnancy, the details can seem overwhelming. It is our desire to help them sift through the details so they can make a wise decision for their child...a decision they can feel confident about for the rest of their life.
In 2006, we founded The Mama Club, an outreach to teen mothers. The Mama Club is a joint ministry between Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach, Inc. and Young Life of the Brazos Valley with a focus of helping teens to parent their children well.We look forward to getting to know you and we wish you the best on your journey.
