During your personalized adoption plan, you may choose the family where you want to place your child. We have many pre-screened, Christian Illinois families waiting to adopt, love, and care for a child.

Open or Closed Adoption Options

You determine how much interaction you want with the adoptive family you choose.  Some prefer a totally closed arrangement while others may want different degrees of openness.

“Thank you for taking your time and being here for me and my family. My life has really changed for the better while being at the Cove surrounded by wonderful caring people.”
– Cierra

“This past year I had the experience of working with Angels’ Cove’s adoption services and I would like to thank everyone there for making my child’s adoption one of the most amazing experiences I’m guessing I will ever have. Everything went very smooth and it was exactly how I expected and wanted it to be. I knew giving my baby up for adoption would be an emotional experience, but what I did not know was how happy it could be. Everyone at Angels’ Cove really made sure that this was a decision I wanted to make and a decision I was extremely comfortable with and proud of. I know personally that adoption can be a tough decision especially if you have no one supporting you, telling you how great that decision is for you and the baby, or even someone to say they’re proud of you. A decision so big and potentially scary needs constant positive reinforcement. Many people think they have two options; abortion, or raising a child. I know now the beauty of adoption, but when I first got pregnant it was the last thing that crossed my mind.”
– Hayden

“Almost twenty years ago, I placed my son for adoption through Baptist Children’s Home and Maternity Center. You and your staff were so kind and gentle to me as a sixteen-year-old girl who was hurting and confused and ever-so-broken. When I remember the gentle love and unassuming support I received from you and the others there, it still brings me to tears, even now, as I write.”
– Kelli
