EJ, Stever, and Makenna share their adoption story on TV

Adoption options for families.

Friends in Adoption alumni EJ, Stever, and Makenna recently spoke with TV news reporter and producer Christina Guessferd on a segment about adoption for WCAX-TV out of Rutland, VT.

“The first time we went to the Get Acquainted Workshop, I think we left there and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is way overwhelming, this is not what I want to do. I’m not feeling that this is the right choice.’ It took talking to those families who had done it and seeing the other side of it that made us go, ‘OK, we can do this and we’re strong enough to do this,’ … Now. it’s just the most incredible decision we’ve ever made and we couldn’t imagine our family any other way,” said EJ.

We love hearing from our wonderful FIA families! And 3-year-old Makenna is just too cute being interviewed for this video!

Christina also spoke with Patty Smith, FIA’s Case Manager and Community Outreach Provider working out of Glenville, Schenectady County, NY.
