Adoption is a selfless and sometimes difficult road. But, you don’t have to walk it alone. Mid Cities Women’s Clinic is here to support you each step of the way, by providing information about adoption options, agencies, and help clarify the myths associated with today’s modern adoption styles!

To consider whether adoption is right for you, start by asking some questions.
Do I Get to Choose the Adoptive Parents?

In Texas, birth mothers have 10 days to change their minds about the adoption after the child is born.
