Great Agency to work with
An Open Door was a great fit for our family. We were led to them by our desire to adopt from Lithuania. While the process was long, confusing and at times frustrating, our "team" was always there for us to help with questions, guidance and support. We successfully completed our adoption in December 2016 and a big thank you to Open Door for all you did.
Adoption Family......not Agency!!
Our adoption from Ukraine was completed in approximately 8 1/2 months due largely to the efficiency and knowledge of Olga and Debbie at Open Door. They knew exactly what needed to be done and how to accomplish each step in a manner that made the process move quickly and without difficulty. Each one replied to emails very quickly and with the information that was needed. Even while we were in Ukraine, Olga was not only available but truly interested and caring regarding our success. I highly recommend Open Door, Olga Klatt and Debbie Tinsley!!
They're not just an agency anymore
We just completed 2 adoptions consecutively out of Lithuania in 2 1/2 years through Open Door, so we've worked with them for longer then most adoptive families. They are efficient, compassionate, personal, patient, and organized. I've never had to wait more than 1 day to receive an email back and most of the time I was responded to within minutes or hours; not days. And, "they" are Cathy, Reda, Silva, Debbie, Cheryl, and Walter; not random, faceless facilitators. I will continue to stay in touch with those first 3 lovely ladies in particular as we worked closest with them and they are now my friends as well.
I would recommend them to anyone!
Wonderful - Truly Wonderful
My husband and I actually started with a different adoption agency. Our calls went unanswered and emails barely responded to. We had started to lose hope in the adoption process.
Then we found Open Door. We actually adopted two "waiting children" from the Republic of Bulgaria and worked with Olga Klatt. Both the agency and Olga's love for children were evident from the very beginning. Every question was answered promptly, and Olga held our hand throughout the entire process.
There cannot be a better adoption agency, and we could not have asked for a better experience. The agency (and Olga!) is honest and the best partner to have in this overwhelming and stressful process!
Wish I had started with Open Door
This agency was amazing. They did everything they said they would do. They were honest and THAT went a long way with us. We received a match within a few days of completing our registration with this agency. The social worker CAROL was amazing. The Director of the African American babies program (TRACY) was personable and informative the entire way. I wasted an entire year with other agencies and I should have started with them. However, had things not gone the way they have, I would not have ended up with my perfect baby boy!
The IDEAL Partner for an International Adoption - Thanks AOD!
From the very first phone call, Open Door gave us the confidence, guidance, support, and cross-border problem solving that we needed to successfully complete our adoption process. We cannot compliment Susan Richardson and others at Open Door enough on their intelligence, sincerity, integrity, patience, responsiveness, know-how, and compassion. Similar to almost every other international adoption, ours had a few unforeseeable hurdles to overcome. We were privileged to have Open Door working on our behalf to understand and overcome these challenges in order to bring our family together.
Great Adoption Experience
We had a wonderful experience with Open Door Adoption Agency. They walked us through everything we needed to do from start to finish. We had a long road together with them and they were supportive throughout the entire time. Cathy was great and even though she had to deliver bad news at times, she was always upfront and honest with us with it all. We are so thankful for all she did as well as the other staff people at Open Door. We have our three kids home now and if we walked this journey again, it would for sure be with Open Door!!
Best adoption agency!
I am so grateful for An Open Door adoption agency. They made our adoption run without one single problem. We had some very difficult situations and they were on top of everything and always communicated so well so that everything just fit into place at the perfect time. Cathy Sawyer is a wonderful loving person who cares about your journey and is there with you each step of the way. Thank you for helping us bring our daughter home so quickly and easily, even with all the crazy obstacles we had to overcome.
We started our adoption journey almost 1 year ago. We had many, many questions. We spoke with Susan quite often (by e-mail and phone) about how things worked. She was always quick to respond to questions and concerns. All this without even having committed to Open Door. We are now at the stage where we are working on our dossier. Susan continues to respond quickly to questions and concerns. Susan has even found answers for us about an orphan hosting program we are involved with. Susan has went above and beyond with helping our family. Thank you Susan and Open Door. I look forward to our continued work together and hopefully soon we will bring our daughter home.
Great adoption experience!
We worked with Olga for our adoption of three siblings from Ukraine. Things went so smoothly! Olga and the rest of the staff at An Open Door Adoption Agency were always quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and Olga went above and beyond to make sure we always knew what was going on during the process. They really cared about our adoption like we were part of their family. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to adopt.
