Katie & Nick’s Story
Our journey to parenthood took a remarkable turn when my husband and I embraced the world of adoption. After grappling with infertility and considering IVF, we realized our hearts were set on adoption. It was during a casual dinner that my husband’s nudge aligned with my research and the discovery of RG Adoption Consulting. With excitement, we shared our decision with loved ones in early 2021.
Our RG consultant became an unwavering source of support. Their personal experience in adoption made us feel understood and encouraged throughout. Their presence, from the initial inquiry call, reassured us that we were in the right hands.
Working with RG Adoption Consulting was a game-changer. Our consultant’s guidance during the home study process, agency selection, and challenging moments kept us on track. Their availability was a lifeline during uncertain times. The Chicago community of families we connected with through RGAC provided camaraderie and understanding.
Our adoption journey held its share of highs and lows. The extended match period with our son’s birth mother brought both joy and challenges. Our consultant’s guidance helped us navigate the emotional roller coaster with grace.
The pivotal moments painted our journey with vivid colors. Meeting expectant mama, B, seeing our son on ultrasound, and sharing in the birth experience were unforgettable. The day we held our son for the first time was pure magic, an accumulation of every step we’d taken.
The adoption process had its surprises, including the speed of our match and the perseverance through paperwork. Looking back, we’d remind ourselves to embrace patience and grace.
Our relationship with B grew over a seven-month match. An open adoption brought shared communication and heartwarming moments. Visiting before our son’s birth strengthened our connection, and since then we visited her right after our son’s birthday! We hope to continue visits in the future.
To those considering adoption, know that the path may be unexpected, but the destination is love, unity, and family. RG Adoption Consulting provides the compass and community for this remarkable journey.
