Interested in Adoption? New Open Adoption App from Independent Adoption Center Connects Families with Expectant Mothers
Independent Adoption Center released a free mobile app for iOS and Android devices last week called Open Adoption that puts important adoption resources and search features at the fingertips of expectant mothers and families seeking to adopt.
The Open Adoption app will help women to understand adoption so they can make the choice that is best for them.
The Open Adoption app puts important adoption information and resources at the user’s fingertips. Mothers can search for families interested in adoption and vice versa, as well as connect with pregnancy counselors and receive information about the adoption process – all for free.
“The purpose of the app is to provide a new way for people to get quality information about open adoption and how the process works,” said Ryan Schwab, marketing director of Independent Adoption Center. “We also hope to match more families with expectant mothers using the technology.”
The technology, developed by Bay Area team Reliable Coders, shows just one of the many ways Independent Adoption Center is leading open adoption in the United States. The adoption agency has worked with thousands of mothers and families across the nation since it opened in 1982, when it transcended common boundaries and introduced open adoption.
“We have been a progressive agency since the beginning,” said Schwab. “Among our most important goals is to ensure that women are supported and aware of all their options. The Open Adoption app will help women to understand adoption so they can make the choice that is best for them.”
True to these goals, the forward-thinking app includes features that allow users to:
- Search for pre-approved families ready to adopt, based on preferences such as religious, family-type, ethnic and racial background.
- Connect with families located nearby using GPS settings.
- Find information about the adoption process, how open adoption works and how Independent Adoption Center can help.
- Get free access to trusted, professional pregnancy counselors for more information and answers to any questions.
