Hopscotch is an excellent adoption agency that cares about finding forever homes for children, and works extensively to find homes for children with special needs. I hold Robin and her staff in high esteem. Unfortunately, there are some anti-adoption people out there who like to make negative comments but this agency is excellent. Unlike many of the bad agencies who have tarnished international adoption, Robin stands behind her agency and its work. She is an easy target because she does not hide behind her agency and she is good at what she does. She and her staff are committed to finding homes for children and NOT children for families.
Launching our adoption journey was a leap of faith in using Hopscotch as an agency. We did not know of anyone at the time who had utilized this agency nor did we know of anyone who had adopted from Bulgaria. Robin and her team at Hopscotch did not disappoint. They were knowledgable and helpful every step of the way. My many emailed questions were often answered within the hour. I always felt that my questions and concerns were important and seemed to be priority to staff. Aside from the level of professionalism shown, we really enjoyed this staff- they are great people!
My sister adopted my niece through Hopscotch and she is a true gift to our family. I was new to the process and it is a very positive experience for our entire family. Thank you.
We are a past and present Hopscotch family. They helped us with our first adoption in 2008 of our beautiful daughter. Robin and her team were always available to answer our questions and calm our anxieties. Additionally, Robin also does much advocating for children of the world and adoptive families alike, proving they are not just in it for the money. The world of adoption is a better place due to Robin Sizemore and her organization, Hopscotch Adoptions.
Robin and the Hopscotch staff are genuinely concerned about children, and about creating "forever families." Occasionally I run into someone who dislikes international adoptions, and I reflect that they would have a different perspective if they'd known Hopscotch. After years of infertility issues caused by cancer treatments, my husband and I despaired of adopting children. Everywhere we turned we were told that my history of cancer kept us from becoming adoptive parents. Because of Robin's contacts, reputation, and perseverance, our 10th Gotcha Day is in 2 weeks! I've given up trying to understand how the Hopscotch staff deals so patiently with anxious parents, reluctant bureaucrats, frightened birth families, and literally mounds of paperwork. The staff's care must be genuine because no amount of money can really compensate them for the work they do.
I don't know how to begin to describe the impact that Hopscotch has had on my life. From the moment we first spoke to Hopscotch in 2006 through arriving home with our daughter from Armenia in late 2007, our experience with Hopscotch has been wonderful, easy, first-class. Across the organization, their level of care and attention guided us through the complex international adoption process and really made us feel that they were watching out for us. With something as important as our daughter, I feel that our trust in Hopscotch was very well placed.
My experience with Hopscotch has always been a pleasure!! Robin Sizemore has consistently shown passion for orphans and adoption, as well as the highest level of commitment to excellence. Robin has always been very supportive of Resources4adoption and our mission. She is willing to give of her time and resources to help other organizations like Resources4adoption so we can grow and thrive. She understands the importance of helping others...which means a great deal. Go Hopscotch! Cherri Walrod, Founder and Executive Director of Resources4adoption
Hopscotch became part of our family when it facilitated the adoption of our daughter from Armenia five years ago. The entire team (in the US and Armenia) was ready and willing to support us at every stage of the process, specially during those challenging times when waiting felt unbearable. We are grateful for Hopscotch and its staff for all that they do for families and children.
Hopscotch Adoptions are great! They are putting a lot of efforts to place the children that have waited the longest and we really appreciate that. They are good professionals and love the children.
My family adopted out of Ghana not once but twice thru this wonderful non profit. Our experience was one of excitement and joy. Our in country coordinator is like family and the agency still remains in close contact with our family. I can not tell you how blessed we were to have chosen Hopscotch :) Thanks for all your support.
Robin Sizemore and the staff at Hopscotch Adoptions were always professional, courteous and thorough with our adoption. Any questions or concerns we ever had were answered almost immediately by Robin at any time of the day. Our family would highly recommend Hopscotch as THE agency to use when you are considering adopting. Words could never say enough about the love, passion and caring for the children and families involved by Robin and staff.
Professional and caring orphan advocates and highly dedicated to facilitating adoptions in the Caucasus region.
Hopscotch Adoptions truly cares about children, and their entire staff are dedicated and caring individuals that go beyond for their families. Robin and I met about 5 years ago and connected right away. We shared the same passion and love for adoption. I have traveled with Robin and seen her love and warmth for orphaned children. Robin and her staff have also provided services for our clients and each one of them has been thrilled with their services and staff.
Hopscotch team you are amazing!
Finding our son in Armenia was a blessing on so many levels, not the least of which was working with Hopscotch Adoptions. The Hopscotch team in North Carolina walked us through the entire process and was always available for questions and support. Robin Sizemore and her staff genuinely care about the families and children they are reuniting from around the world. And now, thanks to Hopscotch, we have our son who is a miracle, major special needs, big brown eyes, infectious laugh and all. Hopscotch also assisted us in adopting our beautiful daughter from Bulgaria. Again, we had a wonderful experience working with well-respected Robin Sizemore and her knowledgeable, responsive team. Our family would highly recommend Hopscotch Adoptions for an international adoption from any of the countries in which they work.
I am so happy that Robin makes this kind of money in the buying and selling of children. Especially at a time when international adoptions are down 70%. I remember her when she was at Carolina Adoption Services and how she has tried to line herself with people of power or affluential people. There are a handful of grateful people she has bought babies for, so they are ever thankful and dont question anything.
