New Life is licensed by the State of Minnesota to provide full and limited domestic adoption services to birth families and adoptive families. Our adoption services can be customized to fit the individual needs of all parties involved.
Pregnancy Testing & Counseling
Pregnancy testing & options counseling are available for those facing an unplanned pregnancy through First Care Pregnancy Centers. Social workers discuss abortion alternatives, relationship issues, help clients make plans for their pregnancies, and provide resources and referrals.
New Life has been licensed to provide ultrasounds since 2000 and provides more than 450 each year. Of the women we are able to follow up with after an ultrasound, 94% choose life for their child.
New Life’s Conquerors program provides one-on-one mentoring and group sessions for women and men designed to deal with the pain and difficulties common to those who have had abortions. Weekly sessions address the issues of post-abortion stress from a biblical perspective.
New Life provides free comprehensive STI (sexually transmitted infection) testing and treatment at our First Care Pregnancy Centers.
Every Family Parenting Support
In our Every Family program, families complete educational activities designed to help them learn parenting skills. Parents earn closet cash, allowing them to purchase items including maternity clothes, infant and toddler clothing, diapers, & new baby equipment.
New Life provides ongoing post-adoption education and support to birth parents, adoptive families, and adoptees. The Post-Adoption Unit facilitates contact between parties, performs searches for biological family members, and provides pertinent information concerning the current and past conditions of various family members.
Interim Foster Care
Interim foster care is available when additional time is needed for the birth parents to make a decision regarding their adoption plan. New Life’s foster families are licensed by the State of Minnesota and provide care for infants until a permanent plan is made.
