"The Lord called me when I was in the womb, before my birth He had pronounced my name."
In Hebrew 'rechem' means 'womb' and 'compassion.'
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Judaism emphasizes the sanctity of human life from conception to
natural death, making it incumbent upon Jews to find life saving
ways to address unplanned and unwanted pregnancy.
The Jewish Pro-Life Foundation knows Jewish couples who want to adopt Jewish babies. These couples can't have children of their own,
yet long to raise a Jewish child.
Placing your child in a loving Jewish home will alleviate the potential
burdens of child rearing -- while celebrating life. Beyond saving one life, you will enrich many others -- including your own. Arrangements will be made to safeguard your reputation while you are pregnant as you undertake this righteous deed (mitzvah). Please call Cecily at (412) 758-3269 for adoption support.
Embrace A Jewish Child's mission is to help every Jewish child or baby in need of an adoptive family find a warm and loving Jewish home so that every child will have the opportunity to experience his or her heritage in a caring and nurturing home. Every birth mother should have the opportunity to select wonderful pre-screened
adoptive parents, or family based on their likes and interests.
We take pride in the quality personal care and support we offer birth mothers. Our assistance is comprehensive and unique, including dealing with such issues as living expenses, relocating, housing, medical, and legal costs.
The Jewish Children's Adoption Network's primary goal is to find Jewish homes for Jewish children. We have worked on over 2,000 cases since 1990, and charge no fees for any of our services, which include helping a birth family parent a child, locating resources for help with personal problems or coping with a child's limitations, helping an adoptive family find resources for adoption or parenting, helping families negotiate adoption subsidies, and helping biological and adoptive triad members in starting a search. We find loving homes for infants and children who are developmentally disabled, infants and children with moderate to severe physical disabilities, infants exposed to drugs or alcohol in utero, children with a family history of mental or emotional illness, children with severe emotional disturbances, and victims of abuse or neglect
