As a Christian ministry, the heart of APO is to see that children are raised in Christian families (biological families or adoptive families) and that the children are taught the truth of God’s love for them in their early years. To that end, couples who adopt through APO are Christians who share the same doctrinal beliefs as APO.
Don’t let the fear of expenses keep you and your family from pursuing adoption. At Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach, we know great parents aren’t always wealthy and we don’t want our adoptive parents to feel burdened with debt. Not only do we keep our fees lower than most agencies, we direct you to resources that will help fund your adoption. Along with grants, interest-free loans, and fundraisers, many families qualify for the adoption tax credit which can lower overall adoption costs by more than $13,000.
Aggieland Pregnancy Outreachis committed to full transparency. Our on-line Adoption Information packet details our beliefs, values, and eligibility requirements. It explains the stages of the adoption process and the expected expenses and legal fees. We provide you with adoption education through our Information Meeting, two-day Adoption Education Seminar, Support Groups, and individual coaching with your caseworker. We are realistic with you about the expectant parents we serve and we never withhold information from you.
Our staff puts honesty and integrity at the center of our work. The well-being of the child is our highest priority. We are committed to treating expecting parents with dignity and respect, keeping their needs and desires at the forefront. We know that most adoptive parents enter the adoption process after months or years of infertility struggles. While we strive to protect your emotions from further disappointments, we are always honest and transparent as situations with birth parents evolve. Additionally, we take precautions to keep your information private and secure. All adoptions are completed according to regulations set forth by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and the Texas Family Code.
WElTREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY
The APO office has a family atmosphere because adoption is all about families. Our staff has become family to one another and we invite our adopting parents and birth parents into this family-like relationship with us. We keep adoptive family photos on our bulletin boards and absolutely love getting Christmas cards in December! Watching the little ones grow up is one of the greatest rewards for our work.
APO provides lifelong support for adopted children, adoptive parents, and birth parents. Before, during, and after the adoption, APO is here to guide, encourage and counsel. Following placement, we assist you through support groups, individual support, and counseling. For both adoptive families and birth families, we are just a phone call away for as many years as you might need us. Our extraordinary long-term care sets up apart.
