Post Adoption Services
Central California Adoption Services – Infant of Prague has been helping women and families for 65 years. Since then, we have grown with the times, implementing the most up-to-date research and best practices of adoption.
People who have been touched by adoption may find the need for support and counseling after adoption. Our counseling professionals understand all the complexities of adoption and are here to help families with a wide range of issues.
CCAS-IOP is the only local agency that provides free lifelong counseling to our birth parents to help you before and after your decision to place your child in an adoptive home.
We also offer counseling for individuals, couples, and families who have been touched by adoption, from any source.
Practice Specialties include:
- Attachment concerns
- Adoption issues
- Birthparent grief/loss
- Child abuse
- Grief and loss (especially birthparents)
- Infertility Issues
- Relationship issues
- Treatment approaches are varied and specialized for the needs of the individual and family.
Call us today if you need someone to talk to about adoption issues and how they have impacted your life.
CCAS-IOP offers a free retreat open to any woman who has made a voluntary plan of adoption (even those who did not place through our agency) every year where they can relax, as well as connect with other birthmothers, share, remember, and honor the courageous decisions these mothers made for their children. Birthmothers enjoy speakers and workshops, as well as opportunities for pampering.
Do you want to share your story about how adoption has touched your life? Join our CCAS-IOP Ambassador program and share your story in the community to help spread the word about child centered open adoption. Our Ambassadors attend events and share their insights into adoption.
Do you have something you would like to talk about with a fellow adoptee, adoptive parent, or birthmother? Please call or email the agency and we will connect you with a mentor.
If you are interested in serving as a mentor for other CCAS-IOP clients, please let us know.
The agency responds to requests for information from adults who were adopted as children who are seeking medical and background information that may not have been made available in a closed adoption.
If a family encounters issues related to adoption after finalization, the agency is available for assistance. While our agency cannot facilitate searches for birth family members by adult adoptees, we can try to refer you to a reputable professional.
Please do not hesitate to call with any questions or concerns.
