APO has guided us through two adoptions and we highly recommend working with the agency. Each staff member is so kind and responsive and truly loves what they do. We have really seen how wonderful each person is there, and we have seem firsthand how they have made a difference in so many families lives, both adoptive families and families raising their biological kids. We know the agency not only does everything exactly how the state requires, but that they also go above and beyond to prepare families for whatever comes their way.
APO was amazing during our adoption journey. We immediately felt great about the smaller scale of APO and the very personalized, family feel. They are truly a resource for both families that choose to place and families that choose to parent. Not only did they educate us on open adoption, but they held our hands through the journey of waiting, being matched, and finally, meeting our son! They continue blessing our lives by providing counseling and support to our birth family, and if we needed them, I know they're just a phone call away. I love APOs heart to support local families and the children that come into this world. We would wholeheartedly recommend them and would have no hesitation about utilizing them should we choose to grow our family by adoption again.
APO helped me immensely with my unplanned pregnancy 11 years ago. They provided counseling and support throughout the pregnancy & continued to do so after I placed my child for adoption. APO's ability to help me, my child, my family, & the adoptive family have been of immeasurable importance and I cannot imagine not having them as a resource. I love this outreach & all they do for our community!
We adopted our son almost two years ago through Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach. It was an amazing experience and we are so grateful for our son and all of the amazing people that we have met through APO. We have recently started our second adoption journey and look forward to working with APO as we wait for the day that we are matched with another birth mother.
We LOVE APO dearly!! We adopted our son through them and have had many friends before and after us use this agency as well. They love everyone involved so well - the child, the adoptive family, the birthfamily---no one is left feeling alone. They prayed with us and helped guide us when we were feeling lost or anxious. We would recommend them over and over and over again. They truly seek to share Christ and His love and it is evident. We feel beyond blessed to know those people and call them friends.
Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach: making a difference in this world one LIFE at a time
The tagline for this ministry says it all. APO is making a difference. This group is primarily committed to serving Christ and the love that flows from that commitment is undeniable. Though it has been ten years since we adopted our daughter through APO, the memories are remarkably vivid. The director told me then they are dedicated to helping each precious birthmother make the best decision for her child. Whether the birthmother opts to raise the baby or place the baby with an adoptive family, APO provides resources to support the decision.
APO gives hope where there was none, and they do so with loving compassion and integrity. APO does indeed change lives, one life at a time.
We went through the process of adoption through Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach (APO) and couldn't me more pleased. The adoption process has its beautiful and awkward moments, and APO helped make it comfortable and smooth. They are an extension of our family now and we are so blessed and grateful for them being a huge part in taking us from a family of three to a family of four! Thanks and God Bless You Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach!
Our hearts are full and our family is complete. APO truly has the best interest of the children at heart. They guideded us and the birth mom step by step trough a stressful and emotional process. They were always available when we had questions or concerns. We appreciate that they take the time to build a one on one relationship with the adopting families and with the birth moms.
Amazing! My wife and I adopted both of our children through APO. The staff at APO does an amazing job helping birth parents and adoptive families through one of the most difficult and happiest times of their lives. They show kindness and compassion to everyone they work with and are both professional and loving at the same time. We love sharing our kids adoption stories and APO is a huge part of both. We have referred several friends to APO and will continue to do so.
We adopted our son through APO and had a wonderful experience with them. The staff is top notch, and we can't rave enough about what a great organization they are. We highly recommend for anyone adopting or looking to place/release their child to adoption. Such a loving organization in every way--looking to comprehensive needs of the children, birth parents, and adoptive parents as well.
APO helped through the hardest thing I'll probably ever have to go through! The lady I worked with was so much help. They helped me with a lot, from counseling to helping financially. From phones calls, text, emails, and meetings, they always check up on you to make sure things are going ok. They always offer to come to you instead of going into the office. I will forever be grateful for their help. Absolutely loved APO!!!
I was going through a very tough time, and this organization held my hand the whole way. I experienced working with Karla whom by the way is sweet as ever. Karla made me feel confident that I was making the right decision. I remember when I came home from the hospital from having my baby I was really depressed, and I was refusing to talk to anyone because I just give my baby boy up for adoption. Karla would not stop calling until I talked to her and then she offered me to come to the office to talk. Without APO I don't know where I would be today. I am very graceful for having them when I was at my lowest, and I will always remember the great staff.
My family came to this organization during a painful time when we had a hole in our heart. We were seeking out different organization and doing research to find our next step. We came to APO just to listen and learn. It didn't take long before we knew this was the perfect place for us. They are more than just a resource for family with unplanned pregnancy and for families seeking adoptions. They are a home for the hurting that provides a family no matter what caused the pain. The members of the staff soon turn into a brothers/sisters or uncles/aunts. They can’t fix your pain, but they vow to walk with you in it. Through their experience, love, wisdom and trust, you soon find that your path you’re on seems a little less lonely because they are with you and it makes a worlds different!
Our connection to APO is an outer circle at best. We are the parents of someone who gave their child up for adoption. That made me think that my husband and I would have very little interaction with the adoption agency. But I was wrong. This agency's representative has gone above and beyond the paperwork and legalities. She has given godly advice both before the baby was born and continuing long after the adoption was finalized. I know if I called her today she would welcome my call and take the time to address my concerns with prayer and love.
I am a teenager that had gotten pregnant last year, and sent to live in Texas with some relatives. Wanting the best for my child's life, I had chosen adoption. I had researched agencies in Texas and came across APO. I had called Mrs. Karla Wilson and began meeting with her as soon as possible. She was so nice and cared for me so well. We had gone through all the paperwork so quick, and she was sure to tell me everything I needed/wanted to know. Before I knew it, I had already met the couple I wanted to give my daughter to. During the labor and delivery, she was there for me every step of the way, which I appreciated so much. Even after having giant hiccup with the baby's father, they were still so kind and caring and willing to help in any way shape or form. They flew the father down from PA to meet the baby and the adopting parents, which helped him decide to agree to the adoption. Having APO there to help me through the adoption was one of the most amazing processes I'll ever go through and I would recommend them to anyone looking to put a child up for adoption or looking for a child to adopt. What they do is so wonderful and I appreciated it so much.
APO has been such an incredible blessing to us and to our community! We joined the APO family in June of 2011, when we attended an adoption seminar. We had no idea the amount of support and priceless friendships that we would receive....and most importantly our precious son!! The amount of love and compassion this ministry gives to our community is irreplaceable and I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone looking to adopt, volunteer, or seeking help with an unplanned pregnancy.
We were unable to get pregnant and came to Aggieland to help us adopt a child. They gave us helpful, honest support. They were upfront with wait times. Told us where they were struggling, and how we could pray for them, because they were praying for each of their families. We recently were matched with a mom and have a wonderful child. The social workers stood beside us and the birthmom through the entire process. They continue to stand beside both of us as we work this new reality that both we have and the birthmom has.
Greetings all. If your heart is ready to be filled, then APO is a great place for this to happen. It's been a while since we've been there - We filled our hearts and our home all the way back in 2003 with 2 wonderful boys (at 9 now, they are a handful). One step at a time; hearts and families filled each day is a great way to completion. and I think APP does it best!
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.
What APO means to us...LOVE. APO is first and foremost about LOVE. Love for Jesus. Love for babies. Love for birth families. Love for adoptive parents. We felt this LOVE the moment we first set our feet inside the doors of APO. We knew immediately we were in the right place. After years of infertility, God clearly led us to APO. We are now back to adopt our second child and wouldn't be anywhere other than APO. APO makes what can be a long journey of up and down emotions, the easiest ride possible. They take your hand and lead you, but not before seeking the Lord's wisdom first...that's the difference. We certainly credit God for our wonderful son...He put all the pieces together with APO being a key piece! We wouldn't have our precious family if it wasn't for APO.
