My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hopscotch Adoptions Inc, High Point, NC, USA
My husband and I adopted our two children in 2009, with the guidance of Robin and her staff. We had been through so much -- my breast cancer, infertility workups, miscarriages -- that we wondered if we were capable of more stress. And adopting internationally is not without stress! But Robin listened to our fears. She was completely direct. She didn't sugarcoat our challenges. So when Robin took us on as clients, we knew that we were in capable hands.
After we brought home our babies, I became a volunteer helping other families to adopt. Most adoptive parents love their agency, but I'm struck by the loyalty that Robin and her staff inspire. We are blessed to have stumbled upon her, but most prospective parents carefully research agencies before beginning the process. That research, plus an incredibly effective, loving staff, combine to create adopting families that recommend Hopscotch with zeal.
That said, not everyone can adopt internationally. And no one agency is appropriate for everyone's circumstances. I feel confident that Robin will tell you if Hopscotch is not a good match for you. Her goal is to create "forever families" -- seriously! If she accepts you as a client, you will bring home the child who is destined to be yours.
About a year ago, my son asked me if we still would have adopted him, if we had had a biological child. That's the million-dollar question, isn't it? I said that I'm sure that, regardless of the details, God would have found a way to bring us together. After all, he IS our son!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Clone the staff. It can't be easy to find employees who genuinely care so much.
