A thank you to American Adoptions and the entire staff. We are so grateful for everything you did for us throughout the entire adoption process.
After struggling with infertility for 3 years, we made the decision to adopt in April 2004. We just wanted to be parents, genetics didn't matter to us. We contacted American Adoptions in July 2004 and began working on the paperwork and profile. We were activated in December 2004.
We prepared ourselves for a long wait. Imagine our surprise when we received a call in March 2005, just 3 months later, that we had been chosen by a birthmother! She told us all the information and I was just shaking. I immediately called Dennis and he was so excitd. The situation was just perfect, too good to be true.
We accepted the match and talked with the birthmother a few weeks later. She wasn't due until September 30, 2005, so we had a long wait. We were very fortunate to have the time though as we were able to meet our birthmother, attend the doctor's appointments and we were even given ultrasound photos of our daughter!
We traveled 2 days before the due date to await our daughter's arrival. She was induced and born on her due date and we were present for the birth. It was the most amazing thing we have ever witnessed. We spent the whole weekend in the hospital getting to know our daughter and her birthmother. We cherish that time together and are glad to have pictures to share with our daughter.
We had a perfect adoption experience, and we never imagined it going so well. Our daughter is perfect and beautiful. We know she was meant to be ours and are forever grateful to the gift we have been given.
Thank you American Adoptions for fulfilling our dreams. Adoption is the best thing we ever did!
Dennis, Melissa and Olivia
