We cannot thank Carol and her staff enough for all they did to bring our baby boy to us. It is because of Carol and her dedication to helping people find their everlasting families that brought our son home. We started our adoption process in August 2009 and only five months later we were driving to pick him up.
Talking to Carol on the phone was very comforting. Every time a referral came our way and didn’t work out it was heartbreaking and I would doubt our decision of adopting domestically. That is when Carol would say when the right child comes, we will know it and that is exactly what happened. She always knew what to say to make me feel better.
Every time I called Carol she would always answer the phone, night or day, weekday or weekend. The most amazing part of our story was that our son was born in the state we live in and the social worker at the hospital contacted Carol in California and told her that she was the only agency that answered the phone on that Saturday. It was for that reason that our son is now home with us.
When the birthmother signed the papers, Carol was one of the first people I called because I knew she would be as excited as we were to hear the news. I wish I lived closer so I could hug her and thank her for all she did for us.
If I could convince my husband to adopt a third child, I would not think twice about using Everlasting again.
Carol truly is our guardian angel!
