“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.

Adoption in Pearland, TX [Begin Your Adoption Journey]
Making sure your adoption journey is safe, smooth and ethical is important to us.

Many of our adoption professionals have their own adoption stories and, because of that, we are able to help guide you through your adoption journey with a unique perspective.
We’ve had countless birth mothers and adoptive families experience their own life-changing journey and bonded together through the adoption process. Caitlin knew adoption was the best decision for her and her child, and she found the perfect family using our national database of available families.
She met Matt and Amanda, and they quickly developed what would be a life-long bond.
“Amanda never left my side — like, she barely went to the bathroom,” Caitlin said. “She held my hand the whole time and then, when he was born, I told her, ‘Cut the cord. You can do that; it’s okay. I was never sad about what had happened or anything like that — just that I wasn’t going to be able to hold him and see him,” Caitlin said. “They became my family. Knowing that I can be around and be there — I don’t even know how to put it into words… I’m like a cheerleader on the sideline, and that’s more than I could have asked for.”
“He gets this family who can take care of him and do everything I couldn’t, but he can also know that I didn’t just give him away. I had a purpose for him, and it was meant to be.”

Pearland Adoption Finalization Courts
Before an adoption is considered complete, a finalization hearing has to take place. During this hearing, the judge gives their approval and grants a final decree of adoption, making your son or daughter a legally recognized member of your family. This is a court hearing you should be excited for; your adoption specialist will help you prepare.
Finalization typically takes place six months after placement. The county you live in, will determine where the hearing will take place. For information on the Pearland court system, check out the Brazoria County court system website.
