At MPower Alliance, we believe empowering birthmothers to heal needs to be part of every adoption story.

BIRTHMOTHERS
We offer critical psychological counseling, educational grants, and therapeutic retreats where you can connect with a supportive community to work through trauma, isolation, and loss.
ADOPTIVE PARENTS
We provide insights you need to create a respectful relationship with your child's birthmother, which helps ensure healthy development of your child and form a loving extended family.
ADOPTION PROS
We give adoption agencies and attorneys educational materials to help guide ethical adoption experiences. And we offer a full range of client services as well.
