"It was a pleasure working with Becca and Rachel; I couldn't have done it without them!Kim, Atlanta, GA
I have always wanted kids, but my yearning for that special bond grew exponentially after spending time with and caring for my cousin’s children. As life would have it, I wasn’t having much luck with meeting a partner that also wanted children. I didn’t want to wait for the “right” person or the “right” time anymore. The longer I wondered, waited, and wished only meant I was wasting precious time I could have had with my child, so I decided to take the leap and pursue the idea of adoption. I was stable with my career, my goals were aligned for the future, and I was ready to fulfill my dreams of becoming a mother.
Tackling the adoption process head-on is not necessarily an easy task. I was left feeling lost, overwhelmed, and frustrated coupled with having no idea where to start. I remember spending hours sifting through adoption message boards, and just reading and trying to figure it all out, but ultimately, realizing I couldn’t do this on my own.
Thankfully, the stars aligned in my favor when I saw someone suggest using a consultant and found some good reviews about RG Adoption Consulting. I decided it was time to make a move and give Becca a call. I’m so glad I did. The support I received, the advice I was given throughout my journey, and the situations my consultant, Rachel vetted with me were invaluable.
It’s safe to say that I learned a lot through this process. Learning how to practice patience allowed me to stay focused when picking the right situation and remain hopeful for being picked for the right situation.
One of the best moments of the process was completing my adoption profile. After pouring myself into this storybook, I was ready for the right match. While it was sometimes an emotional roller coaster both for myself and my family who were on this journey with me, and having experienced a failed adoption, I was eventually picked by an expectant mother who would give birth to my son. I was ecstatic and ready to embrace motherhood.
Dreams really do come true! It was a pleasure working with Becca and Rachel; I couldn’t have done it without them and their unyielding support.
