Our Adoption staff shares answers about the adoption process.
“We could not be happier with the services we received from Good Shepherd. From our very first meeting with our worker, she was very supportive and gave us the information we needed as we went through the adoption process. The guidance we received helped us understand the process and helped us make decisions that allowed us to welcome our son into our family.
“Good Shepherd did an outstanding job working with us to prepare our second homestudy for an infant adoption. We’re matched and our birth mom is due in early September. We’re supremely grateful for her efforts to help us build a family through adoption!”
“Our social worker has been helping my husband and I through the adoption process. She has been a pleasure to work with – professional and friendly.”
