Adoption Option


Legacy of an Adopted Child
-Source Unknown

Once there were two women who never knew
       each other.   One you do not remember.
       The other you call mother.
Two different lives shaped to make yours one.
       One becomes your guiding star. The other
       becomes your sun.
The first gave you life, and the second taught
       you to live in it.  The frist gave you the need
       for love, and the second was there to give it.
One gave you nationality. The other gave
       you a home. One gave you the seed of talent
       The other gave you aim.
One gave you emotion.  The other calmed
       your fears.  One saw your first sweet smile
       The other dried your tears
One gave you up, it was all that she could do.
       The other prayed for a child, and God led
       her straight to you.
And now you ask me through your tears,
       the age-old question through the years.
Heredity or envirornment - Which are you
       the product of?
Neither my darling neither - Just two different
       kinds of love.



Adoption Option, Inc. was founded in 1986 and is licensed as a child placing agency in both Missouri and Kansas. It has offices conveniently located in both states and has assisted in placing over 900 children with adoptive families. We have facilitated adoptions in numerous states and with many foreign countries.

Adoption Option believes birth parents are among the most selfless people in the world. We have worked with hundreds of birth parents through the years and have never met one who did not want to parent their baby. They make adoption plans for their child out of unconditional love – putting their child’s needs before their own. At Adoption Option, we believe there are three ways to build a family – birth, marriage, and adoption. Adoption is a natural way to build a family. We believe the child is special because of who he or she is, not because they are adopted.
