You made the adoption process absolutely nothing like the horror stories we have heard about in trying to adopt.
It is hard to believe so much time has flown by since your agency helped my wife and I fulfill our dreams of having a child. Benjamin has been such a joy and pleasure in our lives, it is hard to imagine our life without him. He is such a good, cheerful, friendly, and intelligent child. Everyone who meets him is amazed at how smart and outgoing his is. People everywhere we go admire him.
How can we thank you and your staff for bringing us such joy? From my very first phone call to your agency to look into adopting, we were treated with such courtesy and helpfulness. You made the adoption process absolutely nothing like the horror stories we had heard about in trying to adopt. We know we were very fortunate to have taken only 5 months from registration to actual adoption and know another adoption would most probably take much longer. However, if we do decide to adopt again, we shall certainly consider using your agency once again.

As a single woman in my late forties, I didn't think that I could find an adoption agency willing to help me pursue my dream.
It has been two weeks since Katilin's adoption was made final. It is hard to imagine my life without her. I again want to thank all of you, especially Dr. Berger and Elaine, for my precious little daughter.
As a single woman in my late forties, I didn't think that I could find and adoption agency willing to help me pursue my dream of becoming a parent. From the initial contact through the finalization, I found Adoption Services to be very caring and professional.
The path to Katilin's adoption was not without problem.She is the sweetest little baby, and was well worth the wait. Every day she greets me with a big grin, and I think of how lucky I am to have the opportunity to be her mom and cherish her.
We had heard such horror stories involving adoption in the media: birth parents wanting their children back.We also heard it took years before a child would be available.and my husband and I are 40 years old.
I was advised not to become pregnant due to some medical complication. So when the time came to give serious thought as to have children, we saw two options available to us; no children or adoption.
We knew that we would have no problem whatsoever of bringing a child into our home and loving him/her as our very own, it was the adoption process that worried us, especially my husband, Terry. We had heard such horror stories involving adoption in the media: birth parents wanting their children back several years after the adoption was finalized and granted their request. It was just so heartbreaking to think of those children who felt loved and secure beaching taken out of their home and given to perfect "strangers." We also heard it took years before a child would be available. My husband and I are 40 years old and 35 years old, respectively. We would be old enough to be grandparents when a child would be available, let alone the age restrictions of adoptive parents. Then there was all the paperwork and red tape to go through. By this time, we felt pretty much defeated, but in our heart of hearts we knew we still wanted a child.
Needless to say, we teetered back and forth for quite a while deciding what we wanted to do. In the interim, we were visiting with friends and they suggested Adoption Services to us. They had adopted a little boy through the agency and had such high praise for the agency. This was truly the first time we had heard such as success story. It was must to our ears, but Terry was still somewhat apprehensive.
The following day I contacted Adoption Services. We decided to go for it.
Time went on and it was now February; seven months after we had begun our process. Adoption Services contacted me at work and told me that they had a birth mother who was expecting in the middle of March; would we be interested? After hearing the profile on the mother and baby, I just knew this baby was meant to be ours. After consulting with Terry, five minutes later I was back on the telephone with the agency and told them -YES!- we were very interested in this baby. The birth mother had some premature labor so to be on the safe side, Adoption Services wanted to move quickly.
Our baby was born a month early! We know this is not typical but we had a baby in seven months. It was and still is unbelievable.
It was quite a week for us, but Adoption Services made sure that everything went smoothly.
It is August, six months since our baby was born and now we are awaiting the finalization hearing scheduled in several weeks. We are not worried about the upcoming hearing because we trust Adoption Services has taken every possible step necessary to make sure everything is complete and will run smoothly.
In closing, we would like to say we have had a wonderful experience with Adoption Services and will most certainly use them again if and when we decide to adopt and other child.
