Discover Our Comprehensive Approach to Adoption Care -Is Adoption right for You?
Adoption can be both an incredibly rewarding and challenging experience. First Coast Adoption Professionals (FCAP) strives to make the process safe and easy with our comprehensive adoption services.
For more than 60 years, we have been involved in every stage of the adoption process – from aiding birth mothers to matching adoptive parents with children. Our dedicated, caring team has earned the respect of communities, licensing agencies and law associations wherever our services have touched families.
When you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and you don’t think you’re ready to be a mom, it’s time to consider all of your options. With the help of First Coast Adoption Professionals, you won’t have to go through this critical time alone. Review some common questions birth mothers have about adoption. Then, make the decision if you’ll allow First Coast Adoption Professionals handle your adoption.
What is the cost of raising a child?
In 2017 various news outlets reported on a news release from the USDA that the average cost of raising a child from birth to age 17 is more that $230,000. That comes out to more than $12,000 every year. Money and financial planning should play a huge part in deciding to give your baby for adoption.
What if no one will support me during my pregnancy?
Whether or not you have help at home, you’ll have plenty of support here. Our birth mother services are tailored to give you the support you need before, during, and after adoption. You can view a preliminary list of adoption services to the right.
Can I choose who adopts my child?
First Coast Adoption Professionals works primarily with “semi-open” adoptions, allowing you to select the adoption family. You can learn more about this process to the right.
What is the adoption process?
We help birth mothers of all races, religions, ethnic origins, and backgrounds, and we’re comfortable with special needs adoptions. During your pregnancy, our consulting services work with you to help you make all big decisions, like choosing the adoptive family. All of our adoptive parents have gone through every step of our selection process, including but not limited to a background check and home study. Additionally, we help handle all prenatal care management and financial assistance.
What if I regret my decision?
Our dedicated professionals work with you before and after adoption to ensure you are making the best decision for the child. Additionally, you’re eligible for free counseling services for any issues, including working through your doubt. We strive to help you every way we can during this period of your life.

Your Choice of Adoptive Parents
Our philosophy is to respect the voices and needs of birth mothers. That’s why most of our adoptions are “semi-open,” allowing you to be as actively involved in the process of selecting an adoptive family as you wish.
We’ll discuss the kind of family and lifestyle you envision for your baby, carefully find and screen prospective families for you, and then help you decide which family best suits your and your child’s needs.
Our job doesn’t end once the adoption takes place. When you let First Coast Adoption Professionals handle your adoption, you’ll be eligible for free counseling for any issues. It’s just one more way we strive to help you during this period of your life.
