good for birthmoms
Adoption Access is a kind and caring agency that gives love and respect to the birhtmoms.
Not all sunshine & roses on the birthparent side!
My first expirience with Adoption Access, was not as peachy as these AP's have had. For a very short time, I thought it was great... that is until I began to feel like I was only needed for the child I was carrying, and should be seen and not heard. The family I picked went from wanting a open adoption to semi-open and once they had my sweet baby girl in their arms, they closed it down... and the agency just let it happen, even though I had been promised so much more. I was not ever semi-pregnant, but semi-open would have been an easier pill to swallow than just shutting me out, but no one spoke to ME. Adoption Access simply said that was what "the family" wanted.... UH, HELLO! I AM FAMILY! I gave BIRTH to that child, and my preferences should matter! I will be there when my daughter is old enough, with copies of every letter and attempt to reach out that I made... then it will be my daughter's wants that will determine where it goes. I pray she never hates her parents for choosing to shut me out, but I do think that the decision to should be addressed within their family, and I hope we can all be friends after that. After all, I only wanted that as I handed over a sweet faced, auburn haired bundle to two loving caring parents who had pretended to be my friend up until that moment, and very quickly broke a very fragile heart with their choice to shut me out.
Adoption Access did provide counseling, but only because MY MOTHER needed it. I have been highly disappointed with each and every contact I have had with this agency, it's not a shock that no other birthparents have reviewed them here!
Thank you Adoption Access for our Dream Come True
Thank you Adoption Access for helping us through every step. OUR ADOPTION IS FINAL and we are blessed to celebrate our first Christmas with our baby girl. We were very impressed with everyone that we came in contact with. You really do care. We saw it in everything you did for us, for our baby girl and for our birth mother. Thank you from our hearts. You were always just a phone call away. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
I recommend this agency wholeheartedly
I can only agree with everything else that has been said here. I believe that Adoption Access is thorough, professional, very personal and very respectful of the rights of birth parents. We were matched with our daughter only 3 months after contacting Adoption Access.
Adoption Access was our Miracle Come True
Adoption Access' staff truly cared and understood us. They explained everything. They were fair. We had an infant 8 months after we signed with them. Their application fee of $2,000 was well worth it. It was my miracle and wish come true when we left Dallas with my baby. I remember screening agencies and something about their staff on the phone was different. I am glad I followed my instincts. We now have a beautiful son and I am more than happy to send photos and letters and we are considering adopting again - of course through Adoption Access. They were amazing.
Our family found our daughter through this agency in 2008. We brought her home within 3 and 1/2 months of contracting with Adoption Access. What an incredible blessing! I am also a birthmom and was concerned about the level of counseling and support provided to the birthmothers. I know that this is a priority at Adoption Access which is one of the reasons we chose them. Since bringing our daughter home, we have enjoyed a warm, wonderful friendship with our daughter's foster family, (privately employed by Adoption Access), as well as the ladies in the office. We reside in Maine and would love to go back to Texas sometime in the future to visit our daughter's birthplace and the wonderful people who helped us find her!! We did four years of research and spent lots of time in prayer over expanding our family this way. To our delight, our prayers were answered when we found Adoption Access. Their professionalism and warmth exceeded our expectations. In addition, we learned that through Adoption Access, our funds would not be at risk should the birthmother decide to parent her child. We had a fabulous experience. This agency is a superlative adoption agency. I reccommend this agency highly!
Best Agency We Worked With
We worked with several agencies simultaneously and this agency was the best by far. We received very robust information about every situation that we were presented with and they cared deeply about making sure each child was matched to a family that was a good fit. We adopted our son through this agency and our friends adopted their daughter through this agency. Both placements were seemless and they took excellent care of our birthmothers. I worked with several of their adoption counselors as we were shown to several situations before being chosen and every one of the counselors that I worked with was excellent and supportive. They run a very well oiled machine and they are very good at what they do...the best part is that they have no at risk fees meaning if you are matched to a birthmother that changes her mind, you are not out the birthmother expenses. We know the beneift of this first hand as we lost quite a lot of money on a failed adoption with another agency before finding success with Adoption Access. I would recommend this agency to anyone.
Amazing agency with EXTREMELY fast turn around
I recently completed an adoption with this agency and am beyond impressed with the results. First of all, I should point out I am a single guy that was looking to adopt, so many agencies told me I was a difficult placement and could not guarantee I would be placed...but they wanted a large retainer. Adoption Access only required $2,000 up front and told me they would have me placed within two and a half years. The back end costs were fairly high, but when I asked they said it was because they have a fairly quick placement rate and that was the reason. Imagine my surprise when I was placed only SIX MONTHS later!! Going through the birth (I even got a newborn!) and possession of my son was a breeze and done with the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend this agency, especially for people who may find themselves as a difficult placement for whatever reason. They are spectacular!
We just loved them! Our daughter was in our arms within 2 weeks of signing with them. I refer them when I can. We adopted our beautiful full African American daughter at three days old and now she is 3 years old and the light of our life. THANK YOU for making our dream come true! If you consider using them, PLEASE consider adopting full African American babies, the need is so great and so is their love!
