Adoption Option Council of Minnesota (AOCM) upholds adoption as a viable and loving alternative for those expecting a baby they are not prepared to effectively parent. We are convinced by both statistics and personal experiences that adoption can offer healthy outcomes for children and birth parents who might otherwise experience great difficulties.
- delivers accurate information about adoption
- supports adoption as a courageous choice
The organization does not:
- provide crisis pregnancy counseling

On the radio
A generous supporter secured airtime for AOCM on 1280AM the Patriot this fall. When the supporter made a financial gift toward the station’s Feed The Children promotion, the station – in turn – provided the donor with airtime for a charity of her choice — AOCM. Listen to the radio commercials here:

Originally known as the Adoption Option Committee Inc., this nonprofit was founded by a group of people who were concerned that adoption was not being presented as a viable choice for women facing an unintended pregnancy. The organization received its designation as a Minnesota nonprofit in June 1983.
Each year, AOCM equips thousands of young people and professionals with accurate information about adoption.
To date, the organization has provided more than 1,000 birth parents with financial support (via their social workers) to help with medical costs, rent and other specific expenses, as a tangible sign of support.
