Review for Kinship Center, Salinas, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After exploring several other adoption agency alternatives, I went with Kinship Center in 2009 because it seemed like the most helpful, down-to-earth, knowledgeable and ethical of any I had reviewed. The open adoption philosophy takes into consideration all parties involved, ensuring a higher rate of satisfaction from adoptive parents and birth families. We worked with Kinship's Linda Brown as our social worker, and she has been consistently kind and helpful, while never sugar-coating anything. As I write this review, our one-week-old daughter Grace is cooing in the background. We will always be grateful to the fine folks at Kinship.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Enable them to reach more birthparents so that there is a good family for every child born.

Role:  Client Served & I adopted a daughter through Kinship Center.
