As families across the nation prepared for Mother’s Day, Kinship Center was helping a special group of mothers come together to share their stories and draw support from one another.

On Tuesday, May 4, the staff at Kinship Center’s Southern California program center in Santa Ana hosted a celebration for birth mothers who came to Kinship Center for help and who ultimately made the difficult and courageous choice to relinquish their babies for adoption.

Director of Placements Melissa Dodson, MSW, shown above, works with many such young women each year. “We provide confidential support to help women facing an unplanned pregnancy understand and consider all their options,” says Dodson. “We make sure women are informed of their legal rights, and we help them create their own unique adoption plan, if that is their choice.”

Kinship Center offers a full spectrum of services to help birth mothers (and fathers, grandparents and other family members) deal with the complex feelings associated with unplanned pregnancy and the difficult decisions being faced.
