Mardie with her son, who is now in his thirtiesOver 30 years ago, I was hoping to adopt a baby. My husband and I didn’t know where or how to get started. Through research, determination, and prayer, our dream of a family became a reality. I started with a plan, a notebook, assistance from a caring adoption consultant, and a lot of hard work; this was our family we were building, after all! We had a few heartaches along the way, but the emotional pain of not having children was more painful.
Within weeks, we had three different birth mothers choose us. We were overwhelmed and delighted. Many unsettling events would take place before our adoption would be finalized, many months later. Little did I know that God was training and aligning me for the adoption work I now do today. It is my goal to share with birth parents and adoptive parents our resources and to help you in making the right decision for your life. I believe adoption should be a fulfilling and well-thought-out plan for the birth parent and the adoptive family, with the best interests of the child as our focus.
I have also been on both sides of infertility with numerous pregnancy losses and then conceiving by new technology and giving birth to a healthy daughter. I have experienced first-hand the emotional pain of infertility and believe my experience allows me to serve our clients’ needs better.
It is my hope for you, the prospective parents, that your desire for a child will be fulfilled soon. It is my hope for you, our beloved birth mothers placing your babies and children for adoption, that the immeasurable amount of love for the child you are carrying will be returned to you over your life again and again. God bless you both in your search for the best for this precious child!
