New parents have resources available to them as well. With guidelines about how to enroll a baby in TRICARE and DEERS, to well-baby doctor visits, moms and dads can have their questions answered at just a click of a button. Within the portal, there is also a link specifically for new dads. Advice is offered on every subject, from how to keep involved during the pregnancy to help with strengthening the family bond once the baby has arrived.

Military families wanting to add to their brood through adoption should be able to rely on the site as well. Adoption laws, costs, even information about military leave can all be found here. Post adoption resources are also available, helping to complete the transition as simply as possible.
