APO has been a complete and total blessing to my family. Our first encounter with them was in 2009 when my sister and brother-in-law finalized the adoption of their little girl. Less than a year later, we were blessed with a surprise baby of our own. Our little one is the half-brother to my sister's daughter. He needed a home and God chose us (even though were weren't looking to adopt). APO made the transition happen quickly and easily. They were so amazing to walk with us every step of the way. They helped us get all of the paperwork and the legal parts completed so that we could finalize his adoption. They gave us tons of information about being adoptive parents and what open adoption looked like. But, most of all, they were there to answer our questions any time we called. They walked along side us, prayed with us, and loved us. It was an amazing journey. 9 months after our son's adoption was finalized, we were blessed with the opportunity to bring home another son (our fourth child). Once again, APO walked with us on the journey and in April of 2012 our second adoption was finalized. The biggest blessing APO gave us during the adoption of our second child has been the way they loved on his birth-family. APO counseled them in so many ways: they helped in strengthening the parent's relationship; they helped them learn to better parent their 3 children living at home; they assisted them in obtaining jobs; they encouraged them to further their education and they helped them walk through the grief and loss they felt after giving up their baby. Words cannot express our thankfulness to APO for their love and support of every person involved in the journey of adoption. They are truly a blessing.
