Resources, Support and Help for Single and Teen Moms

1 Mother + 1 Child = 1 Family 

Adoption is a permanent solution for temporary problems.
DISCLAIMER: These are unscreened resources, so please advise if any promote adoption and they will be removed. Anyone seeking help with adoption services can find that all too readily, often disguised as offering to help single expectant moms but in fact run by adoption agencies and pro-life pregnancy crisis centers. The purpose of these resources is to help mother mother.  Also, please let's add to this list and bookmark it.

The following are maternity homes that will help expectant mothers and provide continued housing and assistance for the mother and child for months afterward, helping them to become self-sufficient:

Great idea! I have this bookmarked to send to anyone considering adoption because of their age.
