After carefully discussing all of our options, including invitro and international adoption, we met friends that had successfully adopted a beautiful baby girl. They raved about AdoptHelp. And now, so do we. It all happened in an amazingly short span of time. Knowing comparatively little about domestic adoption, our initial fears were relieved by the confident, straightforward, and knowledgeable approach of Mark Goldman and Gabby Rivette. After our first meeting, we actually felt hopeful that there was a baby in our future. We submitted our birth mother letter and one month later we were matched. We spoke to the birth mom and before Thanksgiving, we flew out of state to meet her. We then flew her to Los Angeles (AdoptHelp set up all accommodations for the birth mom and they always called for approval of expenditures.) Six weeks later our beautiful daughter was born. She is the best thing that has ever happened to us.
Throughout the process, Mark and Gabby told us exactly what to expect, potential red flags and complications. With their help (and hand holding), we felt very confident. They were always available for consultation and, when problems arose, they helped guide us through them. They proved well-informed, pro-active, and knowledgeable in all aspects of adoption law and worked in a professional and compassionate manner.
