At A New Beginning, we genuinely care about you and your baby’s well-being. Our dedicated team is here to provide support and guidance, helping you explore your options in a safe, non-judgmental, and comforting environment. Whether you’re considering parenting or making an adoption plan, it’s crucial to make an informed decision about your pregnancy. We offer a range of approximately 50 families at any given time for you to choose from, ensuring that the choice is entirely yours. Throughout this journey, you’ll experience a mix of emotions, face challenging decisions, and navigate through a legal process. Rest assured, making this brave decision is one of the most significant steps you’ll ever take, and we’re here to assist you at every stage.

We understand that birth mothers (women who have chosen adoption for their babies/children) require a thoughtful selection process for adoptive families. That’s why we provide profiles of pre-approved adoptive families, giving you the opportunity to choose a loving home for your baby. Our approved adoptive parents have undergone extensive background checks, comprehensive training, and possess a deep understanding of open adoption. Additionally, they have completed an approved home study. To address all legal requirements, we have experienced adoption attorneys ready to assist you.

Most importantly, we want you to know that you’re never alone in this journey. Right from your initial contact with us, we treat you with the utmost respect and care you deserve. Feel free to explore our frequently asked questions page for more information.

Meet our Birth Mother Mentors


Our mentors, who have been through the adoption journey themselves, understand the challenges and complexities of an unplanned pregnancy. They offer invaluable support and work directly with you and your adoption team. If you haven’t connected with a Birth Mother Mentor yet, let us connect you to one.

I’m Lauren and I’m now 32 years old. I made an adoption plan for my son in 2017 and chose the open adoption path.
I enjoy spending time with him and his adoptive family.

Watching him grow is a wonderful gift and I am forever grateful!
I believe it is my calling to support my fellow birth mothers. I love public speaking, my
two dogs and tending to my houseplants. When I’m not jamming out to the Hamilton
soundtrack you can find me hiking with my pups or volunteering
with youth in the Gem County community.”


Birth Mother & Mentor

birth mother mentor meghan

My name is Meghan, I’m 22 years old, and I have been a birth mom for six years. I have been working as a mentor with the agency since I placed and am passionate about sharing my story and helping others. I am a graduate from Boise State University and am currently applying to law school. I currently work as a makeup artist at MAC Cosmetics and love it! My passions include paddle boarding, hiking, and animals.


Birth Mother & Mentor

My name is Hannah and my girl that I placed for adoption is almost 7 years old. Her family and I have a beautiful, open relationship and I am so blessed by it. I graduated with an RN degree in May 2022, I play guitar, do pastel art, and love outdoor activities. The reason I am a mentor and am passionate about it is because I want to support and help other girls get through what I went through. I want them to know that they are not alone, are worth being loved, and that they are displaying such strength, courage, and selfless love through adoption.

Hello! My name is Gracie, and I have one birth son. My son whom I placed is now 7 years old. His family and I are incredibly close and have a relationship I could have never imagined for my son or myself. I love to fish, camp, read and spend time with my 2 dogs, and my fiancé. I want to become a mentor so I can help and support other young women during the placement like I did. I want you to feel that you are never alone, and that you are such a strong and courageous woman with so much ahead of you.
