We just adopted the most precious little baby boy! We started our adoption journey with Carol and her team almost a year ago, with the understanding that it could be 2 years or more before we were selected, and that we might not even be selected at all by a birth mother. We were nervous at times if we made the right decision, and sometimes wondered if we should have gone through an agency instead. The waiting and wondering definitely made it feel like much longer than a year. I feel like not only did Carol help prepare us for what might (or might not) happen, but she also showed care and compassion for our situation.
We were a last minute match with our son’s birth mother and Carol was very honest and forth coming as everything unfolded. She helped us get in touch with resources,and she even advised us to be cautiously optimistic since we didn’t have all the information in the beginning. That was hard to hear, but I appreciated that she wasn’t hyping us up for a let down. It all ended up being a fairy tale ending for us, though. Carol was truly engaged with the entire process start to finish. The thing that stood out the most to me was the phone calls and texts that came afterward, and how genuinely excited and happy for us Carol was and is for our family. We are so blessed to have made the right choices, starting with choosing Everlasting Adoptions, Inc!
