Children’s Service Society is the oldest adoption agency in the state of Utah. We offer non-judgmental, ethical, options counseling. We are non-denominational and welcome all individuals. Services provided to expectant parents are free of charge.

We understand that an unplanned pregnancy may leave you feeling scared and confused. We are here to talk with you about your options. We will support you no matter what decision you make. By contacting us, you are not committing to placing your child for adoption. You are only requesting more information about the services we provide.

In the state of Utah, the earliest you can make a final decision about adoption is 24 hours after delivery. We recommend you take as much time as you need after delivery to make your decision though. If you make a plan of adoption, you can select and meet the potential adoptive family before you deliver. You can have ongoing contact with the child and family through an open adoption if you wish. Our counselors can help you navigate this process while supporting you in whatever you decision you ultimately make. If you make a plan of adoption, our counselors will provide you with post adoption grief and loss support. All services to birth parents are free of charge.
