Thank you for considering Parentfinder to help with your adoption journey. To get started, please click on the button below that best describes you.
We decided to switch agencies about a year ago, because our first agency was not a good match for our family. We felt bad parting ways after three years, but we felt worse for the families we could not help. As hard as it is to be a “waiting family” I cannot imagine what it would be like to be the birth parents.
We unfortunately have had to walk away from two situations that we were devastated about. If we were devastated, how does that birth family feel? Our first agency, tried to match us with situations that were not a good fit for our family. We would go through the adoption process and we would get to the “matched” part, and the pieces to the puzzle would fall apart.
We are with a new agency and we have a new outlook on adoption. We have only been working with our new agency for about 7 months, but we feel good about the change. We have been presented to a few families here or there and have been contacted about a situation as well. We have not found the newest addition to our family yet, but it feels like we are getting closer. This agency really listens to our questions. They take good care of their birth parents, as well as making the “waiting families” feel good too. We know that our child is out there and we cannot wait to meet them.
If you are a birth parent reading this entry, we do not know how you feel, but we do know that if you choose us as adoptive parents to your child, we will take very good care of them. We will support them, love them, and be there for them whenever they need us. It has been a long road for us, but that is because our child has not found us yet.
