I have been involved with Genesis for over 25 years. My nephew, Dan, was adopted through Genesis and he just turned 25 in April! Subsequently, years later, I found that I too could not have children, so both of my children, Christina 17 and Anthony 15 are adopted through Genesis. This organization is amazing to say the least. They are very pro-active to change as the needs of the girls change. I have the privilege of tutoring and counseling some of the girls in the program. The girls are the priority and they are treated with respect, dignity and love. They have made the choice to complete their pregnancy against all odds, whether they choose to parent or place for adoption. That is very brave and hard place to be. Genesis is by their side every step of the way from, housing, to tutoring, to parenting classes to providing clothing, food, diapers, car seats and cribs. They are supported physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I have been proud to be a part of this organization and continue to see the fruits of their love every time I am there. Your support of this organization will help to create a legacy that goes way beyond your highest expectations.

I have been involved with Genesis for 24 years in varying capacities. I have been a volunteer, an adoptive parent and most recently on the Board of Directors. it is difficult to put into a few words the impact Genesis has made on my life, my families life and the clients it serves. I have two beautiful teenagers that I adopted through Genesis as babies just a few days old. What a blessing in our lives. I have counseled many girls over the year in various capacities. Some have chosen to parent their children, while others choose to place their children for adoption. The gratitude they express to Genesis fills my heart. From housing, to education, to counseling, to supplies, to lifelong friendships. Just last year (2010) Genesis Counseled 5200 girls!!!! We will never know the complete impact this organization has had on individuals and families this side of heaven. I am honored to serve on the board of an organization with such love, compassion and integrity. I look forward to maybe serving you in the future!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my personal family with two beautiful children that fill my home. I also am an aunt of a Genesis baby. My nephew Dan is 24 years. My best friend is also experiencing the joy of Genesis. She helped out with fostering for Genesis after having 4 grown daughters of her own. Her foster parenting, turned into full-time parenting as she adopted Devin and he is now 5 years old. Her husband, Jim, is having a great time having a son.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

put Genesis Centers in East and West of Pittsburgh too.
