November is National Adoption Awareness Month and to celebrate, a new “OpenAdoption” iPhone App is being offered for free. Using this app, you can find out about adoption as a pregnancy option, right on your iPhone! The adoption app provides not only information and help in choosing adoption, but also has links to over 150 families waiting to adopt. Through the iPhone App OpenAdoption, you can learn about and explore adoption options, search for and review families that are ready to adopt, and utilize other adoption tools. OpenAdoption is the first iPhone App of its kind; currently no other iPhone App offers as much info! It is now available through the iTunes store and the website AdoptionOptionApp.com.
It also provides a full download of the book, So I Was Thinking About Adoption, geared toward women who are considering adoption of an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. The technology allows anybody to instantly and privately access adoption planning tools.
America’s Adoption Expert, Mardie Caldwell, C.O.A.P., originally had the idea to create an iPhone App about adoption. Caldwell was also one of the first adoption professionals to take adoption services to the internet. Through Caldwell’s adoption center, Lifetime Adoption, she has helped thousands of women find the free and non-judgmental help they need as they consider various options for their pregnancy.
Non-iPhone users can view and use the app as a web-based version at AdoptionOptionApp.com. The same functionality and usability is incorporated in this web version that works similarly to the version available in the iTunes Store.
