“She is able to re-experience the firsts of life: first steps, first words, and first days at school. She is the joy of discovery of the wonders of life. But she is more. Since nature dictated that she was something we couldn’t have, her entrance into our family is a gift, a Fulfillment of hope, a blessing. She had brought meaning to the struggle, the sorrow and the waiting. She means the opportunity to share our love.” ADOPTIVE PARENTS: LEE & BARB
“As a single woman I was so pleased to find this exceptional agency. The measurement of my ability to be a good parent was not, at any time, correlated to my marital status. But more than just being approved by the agency, I knew that I was an equal to the traditional and non-traditional couples also waiting for a baby; my caseworker advocated for me the same as all her other families.” ADOPTIVE MOM: ERIN
We waited over a year with another agency who then gave up, telling us to give up our dream of starting a family through infant adoption. There was a lot to get done before the birth mother gave birth, but Adoption Options was there for us. Adoption Options treated us with respect and dignity, and made every effort to match our determination to create our little family. Our son is in kindergarten now, and loves his two dads. Just like Adoption Options, he is so proud of our family. ADOPTIVE PARENTS: JASON & JASON
When we set out to start our family, we had no idea that adoption would end up being our path. And we couldn't be more proud, more grateful or more fulfilled to have to two amazing adopted daughters who fill our hearts with so much joy. Being an adoptive family has enriched our lives in many ways…we've connected with other adoptive families that we might not otherwise have known, our family is bigger and more beautiful than we could have imagined with the addition of our girls' birth parents, our family story is unique and authentic and rich, and our appreciation for each other and the experience of building our family in this way is deeply profound and wildly right. ADOPTIVE PARENTS: MARC & MARY
21 years ago, this January, my little boy arrived. An event that happened though the efforts of many skilled professionals at Adoption Option. My son, just turned 21 this last Nov 14th, and is happily pursuing college in CA at the moment. Although I have not had contact with the agency in some time, hopefully I can continue to support through donations and connect to be reminded why Adoption Option is a most important agency in my life. ADOPTIVE MOM: MARILYN
Without Adoption Options, I doubt we would ever have entered and successfully navigated the Foster-Adoption for both of our sons. The Agency has truly exposed us to many more options than if we had tried to work on our own with individual county Foster-Adoption processes. The adoption process can be very trying but Adoption Options provided us with a true advocate who watched out for us through the entire process. She really looked out for our best interest, and helped us figure out what works for our family. ADOPTIVE DAD: TOM
Because of you, we made it through this journey to become parents. Your patience, your understanding, your ability to say just what we needed to hear was a gift you gave to us. There are no words to express how thankful we are—but we are from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for being our guardian angel, helping our dreams come true. We will never forget you.
