I was adopted from Methodist mission Home as a infant in November of 1977. I just wanted to say thank you to my biological mother for loving me enough to place me up for adoption. If you have ever wondered about the baby girl you had in October of 1977. I'm wonderful and couldn't have asked for a more loving family. I plan to adopt one day, because I was so blessed.

I was introduced to Methodist Mission Home by a friend who was member of the board. She was also an adoptee from MMH. It was her story of her youth and the parents who adopted her that greatly impressed me. When I first visited the campus, I was amazed at the hard work and diligence of the SCHI students. The camaraderie that exists among those students and their willingness to assist and support each other was truly wonderful. During our board meetings, one of the highlights is to witness the accomplishments of the students and their milestone achievement of graduation. What a difference MMH makes in the lives of these young people. It is transformational.

I am currently past Chair of the Board and am the 3rd generation board member in my family. However, I was also a birth mother who chose to place my child in a loving , nurturing home when that was something I could provide at that time. The Home has a history of over 100 years of service and experience helping people with life challenges including a program for young people with disabilities who are not college bound , but can still achieve their personal best. With a dedicated staff , generous donors and supporters , MMH has maintained a rich history of " Giving God's Children a Faith, a Family, a Future.

We received an infant daughter from the Methodist Mission Home in 1983. The education provided for us was excellent, especially being helped to understand that the first priority was the well being of the child, the second was the birth parents, and we were third even though we were paying the bill. The followup program bringing adopted children together for a support group was helpful, too.

I was adopted from the Methodist Mission Home as a baby in 1969. I was so happy about how they helped my start my life and was impressed by all of the wonderful things they do for both Adoptive and Adopting Families, as well as for the Special Needs young adults, that I decided to become a Board Member several years ago. I love helping support the organization that helped bring me into the world.

The Lord directed us towards Methodist Mission Home through friends of ours at our church in San Antonio, Texas. We chose adoption as our way to grow our family. We felt very welcomed by MMH and filled out their easy pre-application form and was accepted into the domestic adoption program. The payment plan was easy and affordable compared to other agencies. Everyone at Methodist Mission Home worked tirelessly to find a perfect match between our family and the birth family. We were introduced to many birth mothers and was chosen by several but the Lord had different plans for our family. I was called to serve by putting our dreams of a baby on hold to take care of my ill father. MMH allowed us to be put on hold until we were ready. My father is in heaven with God now and just a few days after his passing I prayed to God and told him that I was ready for a baby now. Two days later MMH called us. Our baby finally found us!!! We are now blessed with a beautiful little girl named Savannah Grace. MMH was so good to us. They highly respect the goals of the birth mothers as well as the goals of the adoptive parents. I would highly recommend Methodist Mission Home to anyone who chooses domestic adoption as their way to their forever family. Thank you MMH!!!

The Great!

remodel everyone's office and provide a less sterile looking environment and give everyone comfy furniture and beautiful decor. I can't think of anything I would change.

The staff at the MMH guided my husband and me through the adoption process from start to finish. All team members we encountered were professional, helpful, caring, and more than exceeded our expectations in what we wanted to achieve in our adoption experience. As a result of the wonderful team at MMH, we have been parents of a beautiful baby girl for almost a year! If we adopt again, we will without a doubt go through the Methodist Mission Home!

Through our experiences with MMH we have not only added a beautiful baby girl to our family, but have made life long friends with the staff, gained knowledge of who to go to when support in the adoption process is needed, and expanded our family with relationships formed between us and our little girl's birth family.

If I could make changes to this organization I would add additional staff members - not because of lack of excellent service, but because it is apparent that staff responsibilities are over extended. Also, given the resources available, give the staff pay raises as my husband and I experienced first hand the hard work that the adoption services team does at all hours of the work week AND weekend, and not only in the confines of the regular work week, 9 - 5.

My family has participated in a domestic newborn adoption through Methodist Mission Home. The people at Methodist Mission Home helped us every step of the way and were wonderful. The process of adoption can be bumpy at times so it was nice to have so many caring individuals to help us navigate the process. It was important to us to find an adoption agency that would provide us with personalized attention and provide a loving, positive environment for birthmothers. We considered several agency and felt that Methodist Mission Home was the only one that met our criteria.

The Great!

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

the adoption process. Methodist Mission Home matched my family with a wonderful young woman and helped us get to know each other before our baby was born. They provided a caring environment for the birthmother and made sure that all of her needs were met. The counselors were also available to answer all of our questions and guide us through our adoption process.

help them to grow in their outreach. I feel that this is such a great adoption agency with a rich history and a kind heart, however few have heard of them. I feel they do their job well.

The thing we loved about MMH was the personal attention we received from our adoption counselor. We were never made to feel bad for calling with a question or a concern. Many times we had an issue we didnt know how to deal with and we would call our counselor and just like that she was out to find a solution. Great experience, and great staff. Highly recommended!

We adopted our son through Methodist Mission Home 18 months ago. The Mission Home guided us through the paperwork, and supported us through the waiting process. They also helped us at the hospital and with all of the legal issues surrounding adoption. They are professional, and, more impotantly, kind.
