Meet Beginnings Family Services
Embracing Connections and
Bringing Families Together
As you look towards your future and explore the next steps, know that we are here
to listen. Whatever your circumstances, you are important. It is our hope to create
an environment where dignity, respect, and a sense of belonging are present for
everyone. We look forward to connecting with you.
Beginnings is a safe caring place where counselling and support is provided to help you through this emotional time.
Beginnings has been working with Canadian families since 1985. We are a private adoption agency licensed by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services to provide adoption services in Ontario.
Embryo Donor/Recipient Program
Embryo donation offers embryos the potential of life and allows the recipient mother to carry her adopted child, as well as control the prenatal environment.
In the spirit of connections and with great respect, Beginnings recognizes that our work takes place on traditional territories and ancestral lands of the Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit peoples. We also wish to acknowledge that our Hamilton location is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississauga peoples.
We are thankful to be able to work and live in these territories. We also recognize that Land Acknowledgements are not enough and that words must be followed up by actions. Beginnings commits to furthering our understanding of how colonial systems continue to actively harm Indigenous peoples today. We acknowledge the Indigenous culture of knowledge sharing that leverages collective experiences and allows people to learn from one another. It is in that spirit of mutual respect and collaboration that we, as social workers, and social service providers, recognize our contributing role in history and will continue to work to bring about change, in the spirit of mutual respect, truth and reconciliation.
