Adoptive Parent Stories
We believe all of us, especially the most vulnerable among us, deserve love, justice, and opportunity to thrive. Adoption is a powerful and beautiful means through which birth parents and adoptive parents can pursue love and justice together for a child.
We had been told horror stories about how long the wait would be to adopt a baby. We finished our paperwork at the beginning of May and were matched by the end of the month. This is unheard of. Adoption Choices of Texas is amazing. They are very hands on. Willing to answer all of your questions no matter how long it takes. They also are great with the birthmothers as well. The one-on-one attention that they show them makes the transition easier for everyone. We feel very blessed to have found this agency and the wonderful people who work there. They leave no stone unturned and have made this process enjoyable for our family as we have welcomed our new baby boy into our lives! I would recommend this agency to anyone planning on using a professional, well run agency!
We had an absolutely incredible experience with Adoption Choices of Texas! The staff were all amazing: supportive and caring throughout the entire process. They worked hard to make the application and paperwork process as quick and streamlined as possible, and they were very prompt to respond to emails and communications. The specialized training for intended parents was fantastic – giving a detailed overview of each step of the journey and managing expectations along the way. They were kind, caring, and sensitive to the unique needs of our case.
The social worker we worked with was phenomenal – an amazing person, exhibiting compassion and professionalism at all times while remaining approachable and responsive – even during post placement! Furthermore, we especially appreciated her bilingualism in Spanish/English.
More than anything, from our point of view the sincerity, care, attention, and priority they gave our birth mother was just outstanding. We were so fortunate and are so grateful for the way that they helped us develop a healthy relationship with mother, and really showed care by supporting everyone involved through the journey.
In our case, our journey was very fast – from the time we applied to the time we were on the waiting list was less than 2 weeks and from there we were matched within a month and a month later had taken placement! Thanks to the entire team at Adoption Choices of TX for helping make our dreams come true! We could not recommend Adoption Choices of TX enough!
We started working with Adoption Choices of Texas in July 2012. The social worker, Jennifer, was outstanding. Being first time adoptive parents we had lots of questions and concerns, she was always willing to explain the process and answer and questions. A very admirable quality of Jennifer’s was her true desire to care for and help the birthmother through the process as well. She recognized that everyone involved had numerous emotions and was respectful of everyone involved. Jennifer made an effort to go with the birth mother to doctor appointments to provide support to her as well as provide information back to us. It was obvious to us that finding loving homes for children was more than a job to her but a passion to bring families to together. The adoption process is an emotional roller coaster with numerous unknowns and it was very comforting to work with the people at Adoption Choices of Texas and in particular Jennifer.
We have had the good fortune to work with Jamie Graves for the adoption of our first child and are currently working with her as we prepare to adopt our second baby. The adoption process is daunting and extremely emotional. However, Jamie is able to keep everything running smoothly and calmly. She is able to support both the birth parents and the adoptive parents and masterfully builds a strong relationship between the two parties. Jamie has always been available to answer any question that we’ve had and more importantly has helped us understand the feelings and needs of the birth parents. She is always professional and makes sure that deadlines are met in a timely manner and that all procedures are followed. With that said, we have always felt like she cares about us as individuals and is invested in the future of our family. She is passionate, caring, and empathetic in her work with families during one of the most important and delicate times of their lives. Jamie is a big part of our family formation story, and we will forever be grateful that our paths crossed.
We have been so pleased with Adoption Choices of Texas! The staff is amazing! They helped us navigate through everything and made us feel at ease! Angie was who we mainly dealt with after being matched with our expectant mother and we absolutely LOVE her! She is so kind and truly cares about our expectant mama and us too! Angie always answered my calls or texts no matter the time or day! She would always get back to us promptly with information and always made us feel like we could ask or say anything. We would highly recommend this agency to anyone wanting to adopt or any birth parents who are considering placing their child up for adoption! You feel like family at the end of it all and you develop really close relationships with everyone involved! We are so excited to have an open adoption with our expectant mama! She truly has become part of our family and we love her and her family so much! Thank you Angie and everyone at Adoption Choices of Texas for all you have done for us and our expectant mama! We are forever grateful!
