“I was convinced that we should use Graceful Adoptions after my first phone call with them. It was an easy phone call – I didn’t feel like they were on auto-pilot with their answers. It was like talking to a friend and that never changed throughout the process. Jeff liked the simplicity of the fee schedule and the fact that it was a flat fee. We connected on a personal level with their philosophy and wanted to be a part of what seemed like a family. We used Graceful Adoptions for our first adoption and are now working with them again.” Read more
