Kinship Center
May 16, 2011

We signed up with Kinship center to help us with our desire to adopt a child. As a same-sex couple we were worried that we might find bias or be uncomfortable. We weren't and we were happy to see other same-sex couples in our groups.

We chose Kinship because we liked the thought that we could look for children throughout the whole state of California and not just in our county.

Kinship helped (and continues to help) us navigate the overwhelming amount of information and paperwork that is the Foster System. We took many hours of classes offered through Kinship and I firmly believe that ALL parents should be required to take them. The information was invaluable and allowed us to grow and prepare for parenthood.

Last Friday we signed placement papers on a 12 year old boy. We thought we were looking for a much younger child, thank God for Kinship or we may not have found the son we were meant to have. He is amazing and we love him already.

I would recommend that anyone interested in adopting a child contact your nearest Kinship Center!

The Great!
