Since 1987, Mother’s Choice has given hope and changed the life stories of thousands of children, youth, and families through its holistic services.
November is Adoption Awareness Month and will see a series of discussions and activities to raise awareness about this topic. Through the Pregnant Girls Services, Mother’s Choice supports young girls facing crisis pregnancy, and provides tailored support based on the choice that they make for themselves and their future, including placing their children for adoption. Through the Child Care Home and Foster Care Services, Mother’s Choice provides temporary care for children without families, some of whom may be awaiting adoption. The organisation’s Adoption Services fight for every child to have the opportunity to thrive, by helping them to join a forever family.
Mother’s Choice received accreditation form the Adoption Unit of the Hong Kong Social Welfare Department in 2010, becoming one of three partner agencies providing adoption services and conduct adoption suitability assessments for prospective families. The organisation is a member of the Community Chest of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Council of Social Services.
The Local Adoption Services works with prospective and current adoptive families living in Hong Kong. They prepare, assess, equip, and empower families to provide a loving, stable and permanent home where children can thrive. Adoption is a lifelong journey, and all of us ought to be committed to walking alongside adoptive families through workshops, activities, and peer support.
When a family cannot be found for a child within Hong Kong, the Intercountry Adoption Services prepares and champions children to be adopted abroad. Mother’s Choice works with six adoption agencies in the U.S. to ensure that every child thrives in a safe, loving, and permanent family.
Mother’s Choice has a Hong Kong IRD s88 charitable status (1987).
