We Are Here to Provide Love and Support
We have worked with women in need for many years throughout Kansas. On average, we minister to more than 100 women annually who have experienced an unplanned pregnancy.
Many of the women we serve don’t have any support and we are the only ones they are able to talk to about their circumstances and pregnancy.
Adoption Choices of Kansas counselors come alongside these women and provide pregnancy help and support.
Our counselors are committed to the women we serve no matter what decision they make.
Adoption Choices of Kansas is dedicated to helping women find hope in what seems like a hopeless situation.
