ADOPTIVE PARENT TESTIMONIALS

Picture

When we first arrived at Adoptions Dreams Come True, we were unsure if they could help us.  Having gone through a disappointing experience with another adoption agency, we were wondering if it was time to give up our dream of expanding our family through adoption.  However, once we met and talked about our situation with Adoption Dreams Come True, they continued to smile as they reassured us that, with enough patience, we would be able to find what we were looking for with their help.

Although the wait was a rollercoaster ride of emotional ups and downs, Adoption Dreams Come True was there to talk with us, reassure us, and lend their support time and time again.  Just when we thought we would have to go through the holidays once again with no news, we received a phone call from Adoption Dreams Come True that our wishes had come true—we had been chosen by birthparents to adopt a baby boy!

At the hospital during delivery, we were unsure of how to proceed, what to expect, or what to do next.  Adoption Dreams Come True was there for Max’s birth, and with other staff present throughout our days at the hospital.  They continued to check in on our new family and watch us all thrive, never hesitating to give their love and support.  When we found ourselves finalizing our adoption, we had the staff of Adoption Dreams Come True there, smiling and as happy for us, just like our family and friends.  Even after all this time, we still consider the wonderful staff at Adoption Dreams Come True as part of our family!

As a Board Member for Adoption Dreams Come True, and as a parent who has adopted a child, I see no greater value than that of bringing a child together with a loving family and giving that child the opportunity to fulfill his/her dreams.    Adoption Dreams Come True, in the name itself, would lead one to believe the “dream” is focused on the adoptive parents.   Although that is a part of the story, the real meaning behind the “dream” is the focus on the child, and providing that child with the opportunity to live a happy life and fulfill their dreams.

Adoption Dreams Come True has a talented, compassionate, and dedicated team who tackle the tough problems and roadblocks, provide continuous support and mentoring for everyone involved throughout the process, and they are relentless in their pursuit of providing a loving and safe home and family for the child.   Again, the focus is on the child.  They strive every day to make adoption affordable, and they tailor each fee schedule based on the financial wherewithal of the adoptive parents.   Overall, this is an amazing organization, that I am very proud to be associated with and every day they are making “adoption dreams come true”.

Greg and I entered the world of adoption knowing very little about what the process looked like.  Adoption Dreams staff communicated with us in a way that was both straightforward and personal.  Their integrity and genuine interest in us and our needs, as well as the birth mom’s we have worked with, gave us comfort and strength in the “up’s and down’s” that every family who adopts experiences.  We have experienced nothing but sincere care and excellence in the past 2 plus years that we have worked with them and the 2 adoption processes we have gone through.  They have been friends and advisors, and every month when I take our beautiful son’s picture there is a backdrop of massive gratitude in my heart for all of significant ways ADTC served us and our birth mom to make our family possible.  I tell anyone considering adoption that you’ve got to trust your agency and view them as your biggest resource…and then in my next sentence I recommend Adoption Dreams every single time.

After finding out we couldn’t have our own children, we decided to turn to adoption.  We researched different agencies: locally, domestically and internationally.  This is how we found Adoption Dreams Come True!

From the first moment we walked through the door we felt welcomed and comforted, even though we were personally in a “bitter” stage of our lives.  The staff answered all our questions and didn’t judge us; actually it was the complete opposite, they embraced our feelings and made us feel comfortable.  We began the process and even though there is a lot that goes into adoption, we never felt like we were alone because ADCT’s staff was right there to answer any questions that we had.  After everything on the “paperwork” side was done, the waiting game began.

A year later we received “the phone call” that forever changed our lives.  We were told a baby girl was born the day before and that the birthmother choose us!  Immediately we jumped in our car and sped up the mountains!  We were united with our baby girl and birthmother, while having the ADCT staff right there to facilitate the whole process.  It was the most amazing and beautiful experience we have ever been through.  24 hours later, we were driving back home with a newborn in our backseat!

From the beginning we didn’t know what to expect with an “open” adoption and honestly, we were scared.  Going through the required adoption classes helped break down the barriers that we had regarding open adoption.  And when we finally meet Katrina’s birthmother, we couldn’t imagine not having an open relationship with her.  She is the most amazing, selfless individual we have ever met!  We see each other about four times a year and talk/text at least once a month… this was our choice and wouldn’t want it any other way!  Katrina is everything that we always dreamed of and we have ADCT to thank for this gift.

Not only is the staff extremely professional, compassionate and friendly; they guided us through the whole process from start to finish with the adoption of our beautiful baby girl.  We were so happy with the process and ADCT’s staff that we have started our second round of adoption with the agency.

Adoption Dreams Come True helps make couples dreams become reality through adoption, while at the same time educating and supporting everyone involved.  They embrace the beauty and complexity of every birthmother and adoptive parent’s situation and story.  We believe this is the strength and difference between Adoption Dreams Come True from other agencies.
