Adoption Connection, PA, also trains, supports and provides strong advocacy services for the families who welcome these children into their homes. ACPA knows that an adoption or foster care placement is not a one-time event, but a journey that requires love, commitment, patience and care, and we commit ourselves in service to each and every family and child for as long as they need us.
We also provide Birth Mothers, or women in crisis pregnancies, with the kind of information and support they need to make sound, life affirming decisions for themselves and their child(ren). Regardless of their choice to place or parent, ACPA provides caring, respectful services, support and resources.
