Little Bit of Heaven Adoption AgencyHot
Adoption Services Categories
After we experienced a failed adoption, my husband's colleague suggested that we contact Betty. We took a leap of faith and contacted her in July. She gave us so much hope that we would be parents one day. Three months later, we learned that we were matched with a birth family. Betty helped us throughout the entire process and provided us with words of encouragement. Even now that we have our bundle of joy with us, she's available to give advice about being adoptive parents and managing an open adoption. We have no hesitation recommending Little Bit of Heaven.
In it for the right reasons
Emotions ran high through the adoption process, and when a match fell through we were upset, but Betty went out of her way to make things right. It is clear that her number one priority is honoring God and doing the right thing. We respect and appreciate that a lot.
Betty helped lead us to our beautiful daughter!
We believe that Betty greatly facilitated the adoption process for us. She works with many agencies all across the country and was constantly emailing various situations to her families. It was very comforting to know that she has this vast network with adoption agencies across the country - we really felt that it was not going to be long before we were matched.
Sure enough, just months after signing up her Little bit of Heaven, we were matched with a wonderful birth mom in Florida!
In addition to how connected she is, her communication with her families was exceptional. She answered any questions we had right away and would return calls in a very timely manner.
We would highly highly recommend her. Thank God for Betty and all she does for adoptive families!
Wonderful experience - Betty is the best!
My husband and I adopted a baby girl using the referral service of Little Bit of Heaven. We had previously been on a wait list for an international adoption through a large agency and we were frustrated with the constantly changing fees and wait times. Speaking with Betty was like a breath of fresh air. Perhaps it was because she is an adoptive mom herself but she really empathized with our situation. She would return our calls and emails typically within a day and was incredibly knowledgeable about the many questions that we asked. We did unfortunately have two situations not work out and Betty was there to support us as we healed. I couldn?
Thank you, thank you, thank you
I would highly recommend working with Betty from Little Bit of Heaven adoption. My husband and I began working with Betty in the summer of 2011. By the end of January of 2012, we were placed with a beautiful, healthy baby girl. Our baby girl is the love of our life and a dream come true for us. We will be forever grateful to Betty for her help with our adoption. She is very dedicated to helping families unite. She is very trustworthy and very knowledgeable in the world of adoption. My husband and I lost several thousand dollars just a few months prior to working with Betty on a failed adoption. So I was very skeptical to trusting anyone with our money in the adoption world. My husband had me talk with Betty prior to investing our money for the next possible adoption. She understood of our situation. She took the time to visit and reassured me the agency we would be working with was a creditable agency and she had worked with this particular agency for nearly 18 years. After my hour long conversation with Betty, I felt she was genuine, and we preceded the adoption process. I took a leap of faith and believed in Betty 100%. My judge of character was straight on this time. She will not steer you in the wrong direction. We are soooo glad we took Betty?
One word for this adoption agency - Amazing
The word amazing is overused these days, but not in this case. Betty Smith and Little Bit of Heaven are truly amazing. Betty is extremely knowledgeable and well connected, and in working with us she was very kind and patient. She always responded to our questions or inquiries without making us feel like we were bothering her.
Although we never met face to face, we've established a great relationship with her and consider her to be a friend who helped us adopt and become blessed with a baby boy just weeks ago. We were referred to her through a friend of a friend from college who used LBOH, and we hope we can refer her to others as we would do so without any hesitation whatsoever.
Betty is an angel!
We signed up with Little Bit of Heaven adoption referral/agency and it was the best thing we ever did! Betty (founder of LBOH), is amazing. She is hard-working, honest, knowledgable, easily accessible/available, and in the adoption field for all the RIGHT reasons (unlike many other agencies.) My husband and I are people who like to plan out everything ahead of time, so because of that we always had a millions and one questions to ask Betty. She was always available night or day and either emailed or called back promptly every time we had a question (even after work hours and on weekends). Everything about our adoption process went smoothly thanks to her. We kept waiting for something to go wrong (since everyone says adoption is a rollercoaster ride), but nothing did. Our home study was completed in June and we adopted our beautiful little boy in October! We couldn't have been referred to a better agency. Why waste time, effort, and emotions going with the wrong agency, when there's Little Bit of Heaven? Betty is truly an angel sent from God.
Betty Smith & Little Bit of Heaven Adoption Agency Review
Betty Smith kept us informed of all possible situations daily via email. We had our homestudy done in Ct with CT Adoption & Family Resources adoption agency & were approved to adopt a domestic infant on May 20th. CAFS referred us to Betty as a resource & we are so grateful they did. We began working with Betty in June. We matched with our birthmother and our adoption was finalized in less than a month. We trusted Betty and took a leep of faith and it was a process beyond our wildest dreams. Everything went smoothly! We knew it was meant to be. We kept in contact with Betty either by telephone, text or email. She referred us to a fantastic agency in Arkansas and we adopted our son Matthew & it was finalized within 3 weeks in Arkansas. We arrived 2 the hospital 2 hours after Matthew was born as we flew & drove from CT. We stayed overnight at the hospital in our own room & Matthew stayed with us in the hospital room that first night! The next day when Matthew was ready to go home he was released to us & we stayed in hotels until the adoption was finalized in Arkansas. We had actually gotten approved to adopt an infant on May 20th, began working with Betty in June (2010) & our adoption was finalized July 23, 2010. Pretty amazing! Betty is very knowlegeable about the different state's legalities and has many contacts with adoption agencies across the country. Once we began to work with Little Bit of Heaven adoption agency we had Betty send our Birthmother letter (a profile we created) to about 5 different situations but they all matched rather quickly & I was beginning to be doubtful & wondered how long it would take us. Would it be overnight or would it take a year I wondered. I am a teacher with the summer off so a thought crossed my mind of how nice it would be if we could adopt at the beginning of the summer so I would have the entire summer to bond with our baby. Soon after that thought, we matched with our birthmother! Once we matched we had a conference call with our birthmother & our case worker at our agency in Arkansas! By the end of our conference call we knew we had been chosen by our birthmom. Our baby Matthew is healthy & the cutest baby ever! We kept praying to God to match us with the baby we were supposed to have & he did. We believe he worked through our CT agency & through Betty Smith (owner of Little Bit of Heaven) & Abba Adoptions in Arkansas to bring him to us! What a miracle! From the time our birthmom's water broke through introducing him to our family, in CT, was such an exhilarating & blessed experience. There was absolutely no reason I should have been doubtful or impatient! Matthew turned 2 months old yesterday! (9.4.10) He was born on the 4th of July! Our little firecracker! We are so blessed. Thank God & thank you Betty Smith!
Cons: Nothing. There weren't any problems at all.
Reviews: Betty Smith is absolutely a dream come true! She worked diligently for us! She is knowledgeable about the adoption process & differing laws between states. She is also so very friendly and down to earth! She is a miracle worker. We thank God for her! Thank you Betty Smith!
A Dream Come True...
Working with Betty was an absolute dream come true. She is a professional in every sense of the word and never left us hanging for even one second. She is honest, compassionate, and committed. Within a week and a half of registering with her, we recuevrd the phone call for our son. Two days later he was in our arms. If we choose to adopt again in the future, Betty is the only person we will work with. She knows what she is doing on every level and is 100% trustworthy. The adoption process is not for the faint of heart, but with Betty on your side, hope and peace prevail.
So far so good!
I had heard great things prior to signing up with Betty, she has an excellent reputation in the adoption world and very well deserved.
We heard about a situation and signed up with Betty, our profile was sent in that afternoon and the next evening, she called to let us know that we were chosen. We are due to meet our bm next week and hopefully our daughter will be born next month.
If for some reason this doesn't work out, I know that Betty will continue to work with us until a baby is placed with us. We had a lot of ups and downs with our first adoption and found out that a lot of people involved in adoption should not be. Betty is not one of them, I would recommend her to anyone, if you want to adopt, sign up now.
Wonderful referral program
I found my younger son through LBOH Referral program and am using LBOH again for my next adoption. Betty Graham-Smith is wonderful. Truly someone who is honest and trustworthy.
Communication with Betty was wonderful! Our process was very quick (less than a week) and Betty worked many late nights on our behalf. She was very open and honest with us about the agency we were adopting through. We had a few glitches at times with the adoption agency, and every time Betty stepped up to the plate and answered our questions or got something done that we needed. Betty's connections are vast and her love for this work is even greater! I can truly say that I feel she is here to help the children and the families. Her fee is very reasonable, we would have been happy to pay more. Her professionalism is stellar and unmatched compared to others we have had contact with along our adoption journey.
If/when we decide to adopt again, we will definitely be working with Betty!
After 2 failed surrogacy attempts and a failed adoption, I was very hesitant about any agency. I signed up with Betty and within weeks was matched with a perfect situation. During the match and prior to it, she was excellent about returning phone calls and would even email or call just to check in with us. She was excellent about being a mentor and allowing me to bounce our honest opinions about adoption off of her. She offered an ear that would always listen and always provided consistent and productive advice and information.
Once we matched, she was very prompt in telling us that her work was not done...she would continue to support us and provide counsel for us through placement and beyond. She held her word and was an excellent resource for us during our match and during our ICPC wait.
I'm not sure if we will adopt again, but if we do, Betty will be the only agency that we sign up with. I would highly recommend signing up with her, no matter your budget, as she is very considerate of all your restrictions for adoption. She's excellent and the "business" of adoption would be much more pure if all professionals in the field were more like her. Thank you Betty, for bringing me my son and supporting us through our journey.
Wonderful Adoption Agency!
We can't say enough about Betty Smith and her agency! In just over one year she helped us match with three beautiful little girls. We have had our up's and down's and she has always been there to answer all of questions or just there to vent. Little Bit of Heaven is by far the best agency out there! They will return ALLof your calls and answer all of your questions. Most importantly they will be honest with you regarding your specific adoption circumstances.
The founder of this agency was taken advantage by an agency during one of her own adoption journies. She knows how this feels and what a financial nightmare this can be. If you are looking for an agency, I recommend Little Bit of Heaven.
The Burks in Indiana!
Absolutely the best!
We have two adopted children and have dealt with quite a few agencies and adoption professionals both times we adopted. I can honestly say that Betty Smith is the most honest, knowledgable, and professional out of all of them. She works very hard to find homes for children and is there to help support you all the way through. There have been numerous times when I have contacted Betty for advice both during and after our adoptions and she would always call me back or email within hours. I recommend Betty and Little Bit of Heaven to all.
