Making sense of the past, present and future.Get in touch
BirthTies provides a bespoke service to birth parents whose children have been adopted, or where adoption is being considered for their child. This includes assistance with contact and counselling services. The service also gives birth parents the opportunity to tell their own adoption story, which can be shared with their children if they are looking for answers. In the past 27 years we have supported over 70,000 birth parents and have published books and research about this work.
The support we received was excellent, everything was explained to us. We would have found things very difficult if it wasn’t for this service. – Birth family member
