Last year, our family decided to become a foster family through Adoption Connection, PA. We were nervous and excited to start the process. We were quickly put at ease once we spoke to the Adoption Connection  staff and started taking the classes. We felt very comfortable with the entire experience. The classes were very informative and helped us in learning about foster care. The handouts were a tremendous help in gaining knowledge and having a reference for the future. We began the Family Profile process. There is a lot of paperwork but it’s not difficult, it just takes time. The staff explains to you everything you need to have completed. They worked  hard on matching a child with our family.  Everyone at Adoption Connection was always friendly, supportive and responded within a reasonable time.  We are currently adopting and the wonderful staff has always been there for advice, support and guidance.  They are understanding and honest.  Foster care and Adoption can be stressful at times, but it is worth every minute and the Adoption Connection, PA staff continues to help guide us along the way.  We are glad we chose Adoption Connection to be our agency!  We are very grateful to be adding a fifth child to our family.

We feel very blessed to have been part of Adoption Connection twice. This time Karen helped us get our paperwork in place! Robin Thompson was our matching specialist and she went WAY out of her way to be sure that she was understanding what we needed–she was so patient, even when we kept changing our minds! Later Stephanie Urben worked with us and she was such a help–when we had no idea what was going on! These people really care about the children and the parents! They get so excited when the match is right–I know that they pray for the right match!

We have used Adoption Connection for home studies and home study updates over the past several years. The staff is easy to get in touch with and answers questions quickly – things that are much appreciated during the adoption process.

Adoption Connection was a great choice for our home study. Everyone, from Linda who took our first call (years ago), to Sherry who completed our home study, was on our team. We never felt judged, only supported every step of the way. The classes, the recommended reading, the meetings, all were helpful to us and are looked back upon for reference and emotional support. We would be happy to be used as a reference.

Adoption Connection, Pa completed our home study for us. They were very professional and worked in a timely manner to make sure all the necessary paperwork was completed. I would certainly recommend them for anyone looking to adoption as a way of growing their family. Feel free to use us as a reference!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Adoption Connection, PA. We look forward to the reunion at Idlewild every year! I would love to be a reference for you. We loved Deb Tack as our Social Worker when Elise was a baby. She was amazing and helped us to feel so comfortable with our new baby girl. Thank you for all you do to bring families together! God bless you!

We have been working with Adoption Connection PA for almost 7 years now. We have had a great experience and consider them part of our family now. We would recommend them to everyone!

My time spent with The Adoption Connection during, through and after adopting our daughter was OUTSTANDING! I appreciate their kindness and treating us like family while going through the adoption process.
