Genesis of Pittsburgh Inc.
June 6, 2012

My husband and I hoped to build our family through adoption and had heard wonderful things about Genesis of Pittsburgh.

We liked the idea that Genesis depended on prospective adoptive couples like us to volunteer their time and services to the organization. The folks at Genesis wanted to get to know us so that they could make the best possible match for everyone involved.

My husband and I jumped into Genesis with both feet. We rolled up our sleeves and worked on fundraisers, organized an adoptive family picnic, helped out with fashion shows, baked special treats for the girls living at the House and stuffed envelopes. We did everything and anything. We made so many friends and we felt that we might be making an impact — making a difference in the lives of these young women.

Through our work with Genesis, we started to see adoption from the birthmothers’ point of view. These young women absolutely love their babies and always will.

We were overwhelmed with the commitment, time and energy that the Genesis staff gave to all the young women, children and families in need of help.

We finally became a family, thanks to Genesis. We adopted our son almost 11 years ago. We continue to be involved with this amazing organization and always will.
