“I knew I would work with Graceful Adoptions to make an adoption plan for my newborn son. There was no judgement, no shaming, no surprises. The communications and connection were instant. Just real and accepting people.”
“For years I struggled as a single mother. The challenge to balance life seemed an endless battle. Looking for options, I came across something that I didn’t know was an option. A way to provide my child a real chance at life, while staying in his life.”
"When Graceful Adoptions called me with a family they thought I would love, I felt confident they were right. And they were! I knew as soon as I talked to them on the phone, they were the family that would be perfect for my daughter."
"Graceful Adoptions didn’t make me feel like a number, a medical record, an incubator, or just someone who could give someone else a baby. They were more personal. If you want to be treated like someone special and you want the opportunity to really get to know the adoptive parents, you should work with Graceful Adoptions! You will be glad you did."
“I was not in a position to take care of myself, much less a child. I lived with my parents, I made $8/hour, and I didn’t want to live on government assistance. If I parented this child, I would be stressed constantly. How can I expect someone to depend on me when I was so dependent on others?”
“While my pregnancy was the result of a one of the biggest betrayals I’ve experienced, I don’t regret it and never will. I love my child and I didn’t “want” to make an adoption plan, however, it was the best decision for her. ”
“I was a 15-year-old Sophomore in high school when I found out I was pregnant. I knew when it had happened. Four months prior I had gone to a friend’s house, I woke up with a guy on top of me. Someone had put something in my drink. ”
“I had considered abortion but when my father died, I couldn’t bring myself to make that kind of decision. I was an emotional wreck, I just checked out. Once I was ready to face it again, I decided adoption was the best route.”
“When I found out I was pregnant, I had a 2 year old son, no job and a court hearing in two days for a first time possession charge. The father of both children and I were still together and parenting our son the best we could, but we knew that it would be hard to take care of another child.”
“Being adopted a few days after being born was the best thing that ever happened to me. I would have never had the opportunities or known the amount of love I’ve had throughout my life. Fast forward 30 years and I never could have imagined I would be a birth mom.”
“I looked at many different adoption agencies and talked to each of them. The people I spoke to were judgmental, in some cases rude. This was not what I expected or needed. I was about to stop looking when I came across a web-site for Graceful Adoptions. With this one call my adoption journey turned around. I was no longer alone. I was no longer scared. I was with Graceful Adoptions.”
“I believe I made the best and most difficult decision any mother could make for the two children she had and the one that she wanted but knew that she couldn’t afford to care for. I never even considered the other options.”
“Thanks to Graceful Adoptions I can wake up, look in the mirror, and feel good about myself every day knowing that I made the right decision for my baby. She has a chance at life now, a chance I wouldn’t have been able to give her. Anyone considering adoption should call Graceful Adoptions, your worries will disappear.”
“Graceful Adoptions helped and supported me all along the way. I was really surprised (and excited) that someone cared about me and wanted to help me take care of the baby. They were as committed to me as I was to them.”
“I spoke with many adoption agencies until I found one that felt right for me. Graceful Adoptions’ team was incredible – they answered all my questions, helped me understand the process and provided support along the way. They gave me tons of options.”
