Our Hearts Connect is the perfect app for individuals navigating the beautiful journey of open adoption. Whether you’re an adoptive parent seeking to answer questions about your child’s biological roots or a birth mother longing to watch your child grow, Our Hearts Connect provides a safe and confidential platform for communication and connection.

Answering Questions with Confidence: For adoptive parents, questions about a child’s birth and biological roots can sometimes feel daunting. Our Hearts Connect offers a supportive space where you can share information about your child’s birth and the circumstances surrounding their adoption in a secure and monitored environment. With the ability to communicate openly and honestly, you can provide your child with the answers and understanding they seek as they grow and explore their identity.

For Foster Care

The potential power of Our Hearts Connect is tremendous for the foster care system. Foster children can each have their own group where foster and biological parents, along with the children, can develop and maintain long-term healthy relationships. Each group has its own moderator/counselor who assures all communication follows guidelines that provide safety, respect, and stability for everyone in the group, especially the vulnerable children.

Unique Challenges in Foster Care: Foster care situations can arise from a variety of complex and diverse circumstances, including parental incarceration, substance abuse issues, domestic violence, or neglect. These situations can create significant challenges for both children and their biological parents, often resulting in fractured relationships and feelings of loss and disconnection. In such scenarios, a confidential app like Our Hearts Connect can play a crucial role in bridging the gap between foster families and biological parents, providing a safe and monitored space for communication.

Benefits of Communication: For biological parents, having the opportunity to communicate with their children through Our Hearts Connect can be invaluable. It allows them to maintain a sense of connection and involvement in their child’s life despite the challenges they may be facing. Similarly, children in foster care can benefit significantly from receiving videos and pictures from their biological parents, providing them with a sense of identity and belonging. Additionally, foster parents can use the app to effectively communicate the needs and preferences of the child to the biological parents, facilitating a collaborative and supportive approach to caregiving.

Safe and Confidential Communication: The confidential nature of Our Hearts Connect ensures that all communication remains secure and protected, preserving the confidentiality necessary in foster care situations. With monitored moderation levels, users can rest assured that their interactions are appropriate and conducive to maintaining long-term healthy relationships. This creates a safe and supportive environment where foster families and biological parents can communicate openly and effectively, ultimately benefiting the well-being and stability of the child in care.

Subscription Fee

  1. We encourage all providers to build the cost of Our Hearts Connect into your services so the group is confident Our Hearts Connect will remain available to them for years to come.

  2. The first five groups are free to any new provider so they can see how well the service works. For each subsequent group, we generally charge a $500 set-up fee and $100 a year until the youngest group member turns 20. Even then, the group will remain available. Sometimes, becoming an adult is a critical time to connect with others.

  3. We are happy to negotiate with providers to ensure this service is affordable and valuable to you.

Support Person Assigned.

Let us know who you want to moderate the groups. Someone from your organization can do this, or you can assign the moderation responsibility to us. It’s very fun to watch as the children grow.
