In this touching series we will reveal the individual uplifting and spirited stories surrounding the Open Adoption process in America.
The Independent Adoption Agency, located in the heart of Los Angeles is a privately held, open adoption center that takes on the daunting task of creating families with an open-hearted, unique approach. Through a careful matchmaking process, they pair up couples who are unable to have a baby with expecting mothers who are putting their child up for adoption.
The Adoption Center remains a steadying force throughout the pregnancy, the birth, and ultimately the placement. At the end of the process, a new baby is born, and they have helped make a new family, a new hope, and opened up new possibilities for the future of four people's lives. The process is never easy, and many emotions are exposed throughout the final months of pregnancy.
Each episode follows the stories of couples and birth mothers as they trek through various stages of the journey. From the challenging matching stage as the birthmother faces the daunting task of choosing her baby's future parents, to a couple who've been through the painstaking match and are now working with the birthmother through the last stages of her pregnancy. Throughout the process, the couple remains in the mother's life making her more comfortable, attending doctor's appointments, counseling, and spending time together as a family. The series will also feature the end of the journey when the miracle of birth happens. Here we see the couple's dreams for a family finally coming true, as well as the birthmother's reaction to the experience.
In the end, when the baby is born and handed over to the proud parents…another family has been made…a precious gift has been given from one human being to another which is the ultimate sacrifice from this new stranger in their lives.3 x 30 minutes
