Ohio Birthparent Group is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the life-long needs of birthparents through peer support, advocacy and community education. Founded in 2010 by birthparents themselves, Ohio Birthparent Group was created to address the historic lack of services and significant barriers to social recognition faced by women and men who place children for adoption.
