Often there is transition time between the birth of the baby and the time that the Birthparents can sign the Execution of Consent which them allows the adoptive parents to take physical custody of the baby. When this occurs, he or she will be cared for by loving Transitional Parents. These Parents provide private in home care exclusively for Beacon House babies. Children waiting to be adopted are given the same love and care they would receive from the adoptive parents. Transitional Families have all the necessary items to care of a baby, and have gone through the same screening process as adoptive families.
