After several years of marriage, Brandon and I were ready to start a family and knew that we’d welcome our children through adoption. Although we have adoptive friends and family, we were very overwhelmed when we began our initial research and had no idea where to start. We had no idea that adoption consultants even existed! It was serendipity that we found Becca’s name on an online discussion board and took the chance to contact her. After our first phone meeting, we finally felt like we were at the start line of the adoption process and that we had a good idea of the path it would take.
Our scheduled phone meetings were organized and full of information. When we started our adoption profile book, Becca had a keen editing eye to make our book really reflect our family and let our voices come through. After our book was ready for prime-time, Becca researched many different adoption agencies throughout the country and whittled it down to a few stand-outs that fit our criteria. This was supremely helpful and opened the doors for us to get our profile out to as many expectant mothers as possible. Also, the strategy of multiple agencies was a game changer from what we had thought we’d have to do. Being given a clear path to adoption is exactly what Becca did for us.
When evaluating adoption situations, Becca was there for guidance and to give us her opinions as someone who had adopted before and had similar concerns as us. The adoption process was stressful because of the sheer magnitude of the outcome, but Becca always provided a calm and knowledgeable voice for us which was very appreciated. Even hundreds of miles away, we felt like she was with us the whole time.
Three months after joining our agencies, we matched with our son’s birth mother. Three months after that, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy. I can honestly say that our son wouldn’t be our son if it weren’t for Becca.
Today, baby is sleeping peacefully in his daddy’s arms. It is strange to think back just one year ago when we decided we were ready to move forward and schedule our first client meeting. Our world has changed so much and we are amazed at how smoothly and quickly it happened.
