My husband and I always knew we wanted to have a family. After years of struggling with infertility, we began considering adoption when we were told having a biological child wasn’t an option. Much to our surprise, and our doctor’s, we were blessed with a biological child. Our family didn’t seem complete so the infertility treatments began again and continued for years. A month after meeting with Coleen from All About U Adoptions to explore our options including infant adoption and embryo adoption, we again were surprised. We’ve been blessed with two biological children but never forget the struggles to get to this point and what it’s like to begin exploring adoption.
Prior to joining the All About U Adoptions team, I’ve had the pleasure developing close friendships with adopted individuals as well as birth moms. Through these bonds, I’ve had the honor to have open, honest and frank discussion about each person’s adoption experience. Each story is unique and has given me the opportunity to see adoption from both the adopted individual’s perspective as well as the birth parent perspective; ranging from closed adoption to open adoption to reunions in later years.
Adoption can be a tough decision from any side. However, I believe that when adoption is the best choice, it is a gift. Birth moms should be respected and honored for their sacrifice so another family can fulfill a dream.
