Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach, Inc. is a Christian, non-profit organization founded in 1997 with a three-fold mission:
To provide support services to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies
To promote Christian parenting.
To promote adoption as a loving alternative.
Our mission is to encourage women to choose life for their babies and to help women make sound parenting decisions. Our focus is the children - it is our heart's desire to see children raised in loving, nurturing homes.
The support services of APO have been in existence since 1997. We feel that if we are going to encourage a woman to choose life for her baby that we should also provide any means necessary to help her through her difficult times.
Support services for birthparents are the heart of APO.
Adoption services were added in 2002 because some expectant parents feel that placing their child in an adoptive home is the best parenting decision they can make. Our adoption program exists because of our pregnancy support program. We see our adoptive families as a resource for our birthfamilies - not the other way around. We are convinced that this is the most ethical model in which to offer our services.
Being a Christian organization, our waiting-to-adopt families have a love for Jesus Christ and base their lives on the principals laid forth in the Bible. When it comes to adoption, we believe that children are very honored in the open adoption format. We recognize that some birth families and adoptive families may be uncomfortable with the idea of open adoption. We ask that you allow us an opportunity to tell you the truths of what open adoption is and dispel myths of what it is not. (see adoption information)
We understand that when a birthparent is seeking the best outcome for an unplanned pregnancy, the details can seem overwhelming. It is our desire to help you sift through the details so you can make a wise decision for your child...a decision you can feel confident about for the rest of your life.
We look forward to getting to know you and we wish you the best on your journey.
