  • Description
  • Open Arms Adoption Network is committed to helping build strong, healthy adoptive families. We believe that open adoption is an enriching and wonderful way to form a family and a great option for a woman not prepared to parent at the current time. We are dedicated to providing you with a lifetime of support and education. We offer services to families hoping to adopt a child domestically or internationally, as well as providing unplanned pregnancy options and counseling to pregnant women. Open Arms serves as an educational resource, providing trainings for all members of the adoption triad and for the professional community. Open Arms Adoption Network is licensed under JFCS of Greater Philadelphia and has offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware . JFCS has facilitated thousands of adoptions since its establishment in 1855. Every day we are grateful for our agency's legacy in the community and every day we seek to build on that positive legacy by facilitating healthy, child- centered adoptions. You can depend on our integrity and compassion. We will do all we can to support and guide you through this journey. Staff members understand the adoption process intimately-most are either adoptees themselves or have children who joined their family through adoption. They understand the complex issues surrounding adoption and are dedicated to providing exemplary, compassionate services to adoptive parents, birth parents, and most of all to serving the best interests of children.
