Bus Ads – Reaching Out to Birth Mothers in Iowa
October 1, bus riders in Iowa City, Ames and Des Moines, Iowa will see
ads from America World reaching out to pregnant women who may want to
consider the option of adoption. The
campaign will run through April 2014 and include a convenient QR Code for women
to scan and go directly to our website. The Iowa Domestic Program provides a 24/7 line for women to call or
text. We believe it is essential for
women to understand they have a real choice; a choice that can offer a life for
her and her unborn child.
Counseling is available to women free of charge.
They receive information and compassionate guidance to help them make a
decision that is best for them and the child they are expecting. They may be assisted with making an adoption
plan; or, if they decide to parent their child, they are referred to counselors
at local pregnancy centers such as, Agape,
Womenâ€™s Center, Ruth Harbor House,
and Innervisions. Each
of these pregnancy centers have been visited by America World Adoption â€“
Iowa. Their services for teaching young
mothers to parent are exceptional.
Those women who choose to make an adoption plan are provided with support throughout their pregnancy and assisted through the
process of selecting and meeting adoptive parents, their concerns through the
pregnancy, delivery, placement of their child, and afterward for as long as they
need counseling. America World also hopes to reach prospective adoptive
families who reside in Iowa and are interested in adoption of a newborn through
this growing program.
