Susan and David -
We just received our adoption education certificate. I just
wanted to let you know that you guys really do a great job in
due diligence with families. It was bittersweet for us to
participate as we know the ups and downs of being a part of an
adoptees life. Your stories reminded us of many of the things
that my husbandís sisters went through and we felt that you
presented it very clearly and with warmth. There were times we
wanted to speak up but there are things that are emotional and
sometimes it takes too long to explain why we know XYZ, it's far
easier to sit back and observe and know that our family loves
and supports each other.
We also enjoyed getting to know our social worker. She's a
great asset to your organization. As your office wraps up our
home study we are really happy to have gotten to know you and
your staff. I have to admit that we were very nervous the first
few times we spoke to you.
I just wanted you to know that we truly appreciate the work that
you do. We would recommend your agency to anyone who is
thinking- About adoption, even just as a resource. What I've
found from your agency that I don't hear from friends who have
chosen other agencies is the amount of educating you do.
This is so important.
We get many inquiries- About adoption because of our family.
Friends think we are dialed in but this experience has shown us
that we weren't as dialed in as we thought, we learned quite a
bit! After getting to know your agency I'm happy to know there's
a great resource right here in Oregon.
The very best to you and yours
