LaChelle's Story

I had a wonderful experience at Graceful Adoptions and would do it all over again.

When I found out I was expecting I was overwhelmed. I was out of work, staying with my mom, and unsure of the father. I already had children and was barely making it. Parenting another child would put all the children at risk. I wouldn’t consider giving my child to anyone in my family, I wanted more for her. I considered abortion, but knew there were so many families that couldn’t have children.

I saw an ad for Graceful Adoptions, along with several others. I called Graceful Adoptions first because they sounded and looked honest. They seemed like they were dedicated. I was right!

Graceful Adoptions made me feel like it was going to be ok. They made me feel good – even calm. They were easy to talk to; they respected me and what I wanted. They went out of their way to help me every way possible. I didn’t have a phone and they sent me a phone. I didn’t have transportation and they provided it for me. They became my advocate. I trusted them.

I knew they would help me select a good family that would appreciate my daughter and give her a wonderful life. When I met the adoptive parents, I felt at ease. I knew they were supposed to be her parents and would love her like I would. Still, months after she was placed with her adoptive family, I’m glad I selected them. I keep in touch with the family through letters and pictures, and my daughter has an amazing life; she is loved, happy, secure, and comfortable.
