“I think a lot of people go into adoption just wanting a baby, and it took us some time to learn just how much our birth mom was going through and how much of the adoption was about her and her baby,” Katelyn, an adoptive mother, said. “I think it’s important to foster that relationship with her and to realize the sacrifice that she’s making in placing a baby for adoption, and just the sheer amount of work and thought she’s put into it… She’s every bit a part of this story, as much as our son is.” 

Katelyn and her husband were given the opportunity to start their family through adoption, and like so many of our clients, had a very personal and life-changing experience that they continue to share with their birth mother. We want you to have the same experience with us.

Adoption in Richardson [Start Your Adoption Journey with Us] 

Scott Mars, founder of American Adoptions, is an adoptee himself and knows first-hand how rewarding the adoption process can be for everyone.  

“My mom and dad were a couple who weren’t able to become a mom and dad without adoption. Of all people in this world, my mom and dad deserve to be parents. And without adoption, they would not have been able to share their love, share their life, and give someone the life that I had.  

“Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity.”
