Professional, Kind, Personal
Very kind, courteous, professional.
Professional, Thorough, Timely
Our experience with Nightlight has been exceptional. The staff has been incredibly efficient in helping us through a very complicated international adoption. They were so kind to help us make sure that our documentation did not expire through a long and tedious process with the government which we were adopting from. Nightlight will also be with us through the post adoptive process in providing reports to our daughters home country. They always contact us when these reports are due so that a home visit can be scheduled. It is so nice to not have to worry about keeping up with all of paper trail. The reports are always written professionally and in a timely manner. Our family has recommended Nightlight to many of our friends considering adoption. We are eternally grateful for their efforts in bring our daughter home!
So blessed by Nightlight. For reasons outside of their control, it took several years for our international adoption referral to occur. During that long wait, we were encouraged frequently by the staff. Once we received our referral, they assisted us in the numerous arrangements needed for our expected 3 month stay in country. Due to political issues once there, our stay was extended to 8 months. During this difficult time, Nightlight's emotional support was wonderful. For the entire length of our relationship (5+years), the Nightlight staff has always been not only quick to answer any questions I've had but also very thorough. Our family has been blessed by our relationship with Nightlight. We are so thankful for their Christian beliefs that they uphold to bring families together!
Matched and placed in less than 24 hours!!!:)
My husband and i sent our initial application to nightlight in July 2016. We were matched, and met our son on November 11 2016. Praise God! While we had dealings with the whole staff, we worked most closely with Amy and Juliette. Amy was amazing at responding to emails and answering any and all questions we had. If she didn't have the answer right away she would make sure to find it for us. She was extremely professional and an absolute joy to work with. Juliette worked more closely with us when we were matched with a birth mother. During this time she was great. We were matched AND placed in19 hrs 22 mins (so you can imagine the whirlwind we were all in). Most people have at least a few weeks for this phase but we didn't. Juliette was just a phone call away the entire time. While my husband and I were waiting anxiously in the waiting room the day the relinquishment papers were being signed she was right by her phone giving us words of encouragement and updates. She was the person who walked us in to meet our son and she captured the priceless moment for us on camera.
Home study and post placements - professional and caring!
We used the Greenville, SC office for a home study and post placement reports for a China adoption. Amy Eudy is sweet, professional, and truly has a heart for children. Everyone at this agency with the exception of one person that is no longer there has been amazing! We frequently refer friends considering adoption to them and would personally use them again without reserve.
In the adoption world, the most most important quality is to constantly keep the best interest of the children at the forefront. I feel strongly that everyone I have met at the Greenville office does this. Adoption is very emotional and often difficult. It is great to have an agency that does their best to lessen the stress.
They helped build my family
We ran across Nightlight by chance and that chance has brought our son and very soon a daughter into our home. We have been blessed by the Renewed Hope program with Nightlight. Three years ago we didn't know that there were children who were were adopted and then given back up for adoption. Dissolutions happen for so many reasons. There are not a lot of agencies who are willing to work with these families but Nightlight does. Laura has been a great friend and mentor throughout our adoptions. As you can imagine these adoptions tend to be highly emotional and she has been there for me and my husband every step of the way. Even with a failed adoption attempt this summer. Amy did our home study as well as Kim and both were extremely professional and warm in manner. I will continue to work with, support and recommend Nightlight Christian adoptions to any and everyone who will listen.
We owe Nightlight a debt we could never repay. After 3 miscarriages and years of fertility treatment, we decided to try the Snowflakes program. The process was amazing. We finished the home study and were matched within 3 months. The FET was done about 2 months later and we gave birth to our little girl. We are so grateful for the amazing team at Snowflakes.
Disrespectful, Dishonoring, Slow and Poor Communication
We began the process with Nightlight to place our embryos for adoption. We were assigned Leah as our Coordinator. Immediately, I noticed she was not quick to respond via email and the process of us working through our Stages to get to the Matching Phase was prolonged. I even made mention of this to her, to no avail. The process and paperwork given to donors is not explained, and, honestly, is not well streamlined. We would have questions regarding the forms we needed to fill out or about the process and she would not reply timely. Eventually I spoke with Leah's team lead, Alyssa, and expressed my thoughts with her. She was very kind and pleasant, but, sadly, there was still no change in our dealings with Leah. After working to complete the last Phase of paperwork before matching, my husband and I reached out to Leah once again before proceeding any further regarding a contract question. Long story short, it all turned into a big mess with all of the incompetent people working for this agency. I ended up having to track down myself. Kimberly Tyson, the Director of the Snowflake Program. NOW I see where the issue comes into play with this agency and EA Program -- Leadership! Kimberly was very unkind -- rude, actually. Completely assuming, disrespectful, dishonoring. I would never ever ever allow my precious babies to be placed anywhere near this person or agency. And to cloak as an agency of Christian principles? Wow. They are repulsive in carrying out this blatant lie in front of people who are likely working from a emotional place. I would never do business with this group. I have, and will continue, to blast their disservice and game to all parties considering them. Please do not work with this group. After talking to many others after my experience, apparently, many, many others have had similar experiences. AVOID!
run far far away
I felt that this agency was keeping a lot of information from me & what my rights are as a birth mother. They care more about the person who is PAYING vs who is PLACING. things always seemed off with them but i was hesitant to change agencies hoping it was just paranoia. as a birth mother i recommend finding another agency
