Our family’s adoption goal was to adopt female infant. We met Action and their staff at an adoption fair in Centerville. Having looked at other agencies and having prayed over a period of a year we went back to Action. We went back to Action, because of their open door attitude; everyone was welcome to explore the adoption process at the Agency without pressure. Further, the reviews from foster and adoptive families on Action’s website were very encouraging. Most of the other agencies we looked at seemed very impersonal, very formal and had little online information.
After some training with Action, we quickly realized that we might have to wait a long time before we would be matched with an infant and Action was honest enough to tell us the same. They even gave us the option to go to another Agency more specialized in infant adoptions. However, having prayed about the situation again, we believed that we should stay with Action and in a matter of months Action was able to find us a beautiful daughter.
We are grateful to God for leading us to Action and we will be forever grateful for the support, advice and encouragement Action gave us throughout the adoption process. Even though things did not always go smoothly, we had a wonderful experience. Action staff are kind, knowledgeable, experienced and committed to find the best fit for children who need forever families. It is clear that the welfare of children is the Agency’s main priority. Further, they also provide their families with ongoing support groups and a children’s program were kids can make friends and grow. We have had no reservations about recommending Action to our friends and family and have done so on several occasions. Thank you Action for your selfless dedication to helping children find forever families.
My husband and I went to Action Inc to build our family. It took about 9 months for us to finish all our training, homestudy, and get matched with our wonderful 6 year old son. We went with Action because of their ability to network and work with agencies all over the US to find just the right fit for our family. We now have an amazing son who fits in perfectly with us. Action is unique in the fact that they have continued training opportunities and a free parent and children's support group every Friday night. We have been hooked up with other knowledgable parents and community resources through Action's wide base of families and knowledge about what's good for kids! These caring individuals are in this to help kids and families.
From our first meeting at ACTION, my husband and I knew it was where we were supposed to adopt. The social workers are deeply committed to finding the right family for each individual child. We were just matched with the little girl we always dreamed of four months ago. We were told by many that it could take many months or years to be matched. But after only six months from completion of training, the phone call came. They walked us through each step and have always been supportive with quick response time. Their passion for children, needing a family to call their own, shines through.
Action Adoption is an amazing organization. They care deeply about their mission to provide "forever homes" to children most of which are in the foster care system. They work tirelessly to provide matches for waiting families. I know firsthand how diligent and proactive they are in their efforts. If you are wanting to adopt a waiting child, please know that they are a top notch organization. Thanks Action for all you do for your families and the community. You truly are amazing.
