Birth Mother Stories
Our experience with open adoption through Adoption Choices of Texas has been very positive. To us, open adoption means giving our child the best life possible, while still getting to be a part of it. We knew from the beginning that we wouldn’t be able to provide our son with everything he needed, so we agreed adoption was what was best for all three of us. We were nervous at the thought of not seeing him grow up and not knowing what was going on in his life, but through open adoption we still get to know him and see him grow. As soon as we met our son’s adoptive dads, all of our fears disappeared. We felt a connection and knew instantly that he was meant to be with this family. Our relationship formed naturally. They attended every doctor’s appointment after the match. They were able to be a part of the pregnancy and were even in the room when he was born. We wanted to provide breast milk for our son so that he could get all the great benefits. I pumped for about 4 weeks after his birth and met with the adoptive parents weekly to give them the milk. We have a very close relationship. We receive pictures and updates regularly and meet up at least once a month. Adoption is a rollercoaster, but we wouldn’t trade our son’s family for the world.
My experience with this agency is outstanding. Never could I ever imagined meeting people who cared so much about my needs and making sure that I was comfortable with this adoption. Adoption itself is a very complicated procedure and also a very emotional rollercoaster but with the help of Adoption Choices of Texas I got through it and now I look back and I have no regrets. I am so thankful to have someone like Jennifer. She made a major impact on my life and I am forever grateful.
As a dad in the situation, I was very nervous and scared as to how everything would pan out. These are the most kind, thoughtful and caring people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Kenna is dedicated to comforting you in this hard decision you make in your life. She is nothing but supportive and finds a way to ease all of the negative away from the moment. Jennifer is strong and one of the most amazing people I have ever spoken to. I called and was terrified about how to go forward and she encouraged me to stay tough even though I thought I couldn’t anymore. She had faith in me to push through because she knows her staff is able to help in these kind of moments. I will always be grateful and in their debt for helping me in this time. I would like to thank everyone at Adoption Choices of Texas for being wonderful people and making me feel like I was cared about just as much as the child. If you are looking into adoption, they are the best place to go and consult. Don’t be afraid, these people are here to help and assist, not to judge. Do what’s right for your child, and don’t be scared to do it. I will always love everyone who helped us at Adoption Choices of Texas. Thank you so much.
I had a great experience overall. My adoption counselor and go to person (Kenna) was amazing! Not only was I completely comfortable with sharing everything with her, but she was very resourceful and always checked on me. She made sure that everything I wanted during all of this, and at delivery went exactly as planned. I found the best family I could possibly find for my child to be apart of their family. Adoption Choices definitely do their background and research on the adopted families. I am at peace knowing that my child was placed in a loving, nurturing home and that I do not have to worry. Kenna was even at the hospital with me the day of delivery and made sure I was comfortable and that she was at my fingertips in case I needed her for ANYTHING. She truly went above and beyond for me during the process from start to finish. As well as continues to check on me 3 weeks after the delivery. I had an amazing experience and have been more at peace with everything just because of the staff at Adoption Choices, and the adopted family that I chose through their agency. I would definitely give this agency 5 stars and would recommend them to any birth mother looking for a great outcome for themselves as well as their child. My daughter was blessed with an amazing family through this company and I could not have found a better family. This company is so compassionate and loving as if they were making the choices right along with you. They definitely enjoy what they do, and do what they say and say what they mean!!! Overall I had a great experience! Thanks Adoption Choices, and Kenna!!!
