Our Case Manager was a pleasure to work with. For going through such a life-changing event and supporting us throughout our entire pregnant journey, she became like family. She was a friend to both of us, and our families. She made it possible to not only meet and befriend our adoptive parents, she made it possible to make them part of our family as well. Without our Case Manager, we would not be where we are today in our lives.
The connection that we all share now has no name, or label in our society, but it doesn’t need one. We are family and I am thrilled that Evan is with the perfect parents.
Jeremy & Will
Meeting our son was one of the most thrilling moments we’ve ever experienced as a family. Our lives changed forever the day we brought him home and we are forever thankful to Friends in Adoption for helping make our dreams of parenthood come true!
John & Maureen
We looked at a lot of different adoption agencies and a lot of them didn’t feel good to us. We didn’t feel there was any heart to them. We went to the two-day workshop that Friends in Adoption was having and we felt the love immediately.
I can’t thank you enough for the incredible support and help you and Friends in Adoption have been.
Justin & Paul
After becoming officially listed with Friends in Adoption in March, we quickly began preparing our nursery. Some people thought this was premature, but we wanted to let “the universe” know we were ready to be parents. With this taking place during the early part of our COVID quarantine, we had plenty of time and it was a nice distraction. Well, the universe seemed to hear our call because in May we matched with a wonderful birth mother who was already 7 months pregnant! On July 8th, we welcomed our darling daughter Jacquelyn into our lives. With the support of our family, friends, and exceptional staff at Friends in Adoption, our journey into parenthood was truly the silver lining to an otherwise challenging year due to the pandemic. We are so thankful and love our new roles as parents. Watching our sweet little girl grow continues to be a truly amazing experience every day.
Reena & Helen
The Friends in Adoption team who helped us in many ways from learning so much about inclusive and open adoption to processing our feelings while awaiting a match to supporting us throughout the journey to our son’s adoption.
I worked closely with the family I chose through my pregnancy, she went with me to most of my OBGYN appointments and was even in the delivery room with me when my daughter was born. My Case Manager made all of this possible and helped quickly and successfully work through any concerns or problems I or the adopting family had.
Sarah & Brad
We are so grateful to have found Friends in Adoption! They made the adoption process smooth and easy throughout with great communication and warm support.
Brandon & Carlos
Friends in Adoption was incredible every step of the way. Everyone involved in our journey holds a special place in our hearts and is forever a part of our family.
Erica & Matt
We are thankful to Friends in Adoption for facilitating the entire process, for always being available to answer questions or calm our nerves, and for making a stressful and emotional experience as seamless as possible.
B & E
The day came when we finally got to speak with the couple we wanted. Everything went better than we could have hoped for. There were no awkward moments in conversation, nothing was forced, and we laughed throughout the whole thing.
My Case Manager was kind, understanding, helpful, and answered every single ridiculous question and listened to everything that had happened.
Brandon & Katrina
When we initially found out about Friends in Adoption, that was the first time I’d really heard the term open adoption. I think initially there were some fears and some concerns. It has turned out really, really well. Having an open adoption plan with birth parents and building a relationship with them as the children get older is a really positive thing.
David & Michele
We are so grateful for our family, extended family, all the wonderful relationships we have and people who support and love us. Most of all we are grateful to Friends in Adoption for helping us find an amazing human being and create our family!
This adoption has continued to provide me with strength, hope, passion, and to be honest a little bit of magic. I am grateful every moment of every day for Friends in Adoption, Leah and Sara, and the way things worked.
For those families who are thinking about adoption, it’s a really great thing to do, by giving a child a life with a real, caring
family; whether they are in the United State or from another country. Friends In Adoption is a great adoption agency in the U.S.
There is no way to encapsulate how life life has been post adoption, because it is a continuous work in progress. I just know that our situation works for us.
Rick & Kevin
When we decided to pursue adoption for our second child, there was no other choice for us but Friends in Adoption.
We went together and talked to our Case Manager and she told us everything about what Friends in Adoption stood for and how things would go. She told us about open adoption which I had no idea what it was, but when I found out I was all for it.
Eric & Ivan
You are in our thoughts always and its amazing this many years later how often we tell people on a regular basis about the wonderful experience we had going through Friends in Adoption.
I remember the excitement and relief when we were told that we could select the family that our baby would become a part of. When the envelope arrived with the adoptive family profiles in them, I vividly remember finding the profile of the family we wanted. They exuded such warmth in all of their pictures and you could instantly feel a sense of sincerity in their words
Most of my contact with my Case Manager was over the phone or via email but I couldn’t help but feel this radiating smile casting over me every time we communicated. She gave me hope. She gave me a sense of normalcy.
Mark & Julie
We love him so much and are so grateful to Friends in Adoption for their unending support, advice, and love. We are also so grateful to our beautiful birth mother who placed her child with us… most of all we are grateful for our little boy who is our miracle and our love.
My Case Manager was kind, understanding, helpful, and answered every single ridiculous question and listened to everything that had happened without judgment. This, in my opinion, was the start of making this story as amazing as it was.
I met the family so I could ask questions and get to know them. You could tell from the very second that they were going to love my son more than anything and give him the world, which they do.
This experience was by far the hardest obstacle I’ve been through in my life. I can honestly say there was NO WAY I could have done it without my Case Manager. She was such an easy person to talk to. She always knew just what to say to make me smile or laugh. For two people who never knew each other, she was so willing to go the extra mile to make sure my experience was much easier. It’s ALWAYS the smallest things a person does or says that means the most. I would like to thank her, Mike, & Jody (adoptive parents) from the bottom of my heart!!!
Friends in Adoption helped me find a forever home and a loving family that would do anything for me. It gave me a chance at a life that I would have never experienced.
Virgilio and I becoming parents was a dream come true and Tina was our guardian angel.
Thank You Friends in Adoption for helping kids like me find their family. Thank you for everything you did for me.
It was uncharted territory for all of us but they made it as seamless as possible, that’s Friends in Adoption. They make it happen.
My Case Manager helped me with everything that I asked, from sending me profiles of the adoptive parents that I had specifically told her, to getting me taken care of with my counselor that Friends in Adoption had provided me to meet in person. I was nervous about meeting the adoptive parents but when I met them they were great. I actually found out that the adoptive mom had the same birthday as me so it made me feel more connected to her.
We are forever grateful to Laura & Dean. We love them very much. We are pleased and honored to have them as part of our family.
Thank you for your help putting Francesca and I together as a family, I am not such a spiritual person, but I firmly believe, I absolutely know, that she is my destiny.
Jen & Steph
We owe Friends in Adoption everything — Our lives have been forever changed because of you!
