Considering Adoption for Your Baby?

We’re Here for You Any Time

We at Adoption by Shepherd Care are here to provide you with support through your pregnancy journey. We understand that an unplanned infant brings many questions, which we will answer along the way! We offer individual counseling for moms-to-be who want or need specific assistance when thinking about putting their child up for adoption. We also help those who want to adopt an infant. We are here to help you learn more about Florida’s adoption process, and will guide you along the way.


What People Are Saying

ASC was an absolutely incredible agency to work with. We got to know the staff personally even though we were corresponding internationally. They knew us by name and were always available for our questions and help. The support that they provide on BOTH sides for the adoptive and birth families is something I have never heard of outside of ASC. Both sides felt cared for, supported, fully informed, and not rushed or pressured at any point. Relationships between the birth families and adoptive parents are encouraged, facilitated, and fostered. Thanks to them, we enjoy a strong and amazing relationship with our child’s family. There are so many ways for adoption to be scary and confusing, but that wasn’t our experience. 10/10 recommend forever.

We connected with ABSC through Christian Adoption Consultants. From the first phone call we felt this was the agency for us. The care they show for mothers during the pregnancy and after birth was something we were drawn to.

Throughout the process Nidia was amazing. Talking us through expectations, next steps, how to pray for all involved and holding our hand through the process. The management of funds, the care for mothers and potential adoptive families was second to none. We are thankful for Nidia and the attention to detail and care she showed throughout this process. Our son is 14 weeks old, and Nidia continues to support us post placement. Thank you, Adoptions by Shepard Care, for helping us grow our family.

We are very fortunate to have been connected to Adoption by Shepherd Care. Terri was fantastic to work with and truly helped ease our concerns and walk us through everything, especially with the unknown of adopting during the beginning of the pandemic.

They also connected us with other families who had similar birth stories for their adoptive child. Lastly they provided great resources to help us navigate a world that was unknown to us, especially related to open adoption which I’m so thankful we did.

We had an amazing experience with Adoption by shepherd care. We began our adoption journey in 2021 and we are holding our baby in our arms now.

ASC held our hands every step of the way. They became like family to us and we highly recommend them. We cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us.

If we decide to keep growing our family we will definitely do it with them again.
