Review for Westside Children's Center , Culver City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our journey to becoming a family began when we decided to explore adoption, and a friend recommended WCC. Although it wasn't the route we were planning, it was definitely the path for us. We became certified foster parents, and started our family when our Godson came to stay with us. He was to be reunified with his birth parents, and we were very apprehensive about the process initially. Turns out that his birth parents also became part of our family, and we were confident in his return to them, that was where he was meant to be. WCC managed this process with all the compassion that was humanly possible and made our family stronger.

The second child placed with us is our daughter, and she came to us as a foster child in need of a permanent home. The process was lengthy, but the benefit of fostering was that she was with us while we were waiting for the paperwork to be completed. The Adoption Day at the Family Court was amazing, and the celebration we had later with our friends and family was incredibly special.

Now it's 13 years later. Our Godson and his Mom are doing very well. We keep in touch often, and try to see each other when we're able, since we now live in different cities. Our daughter is preparing to graduate from high school in June, and will be off to college in the fall.

We define family as a group of people who love each other unconditionally. And WCC was the perfect organization for us to work with, as their program, and support helped us to bring our group of people together for a lifetime.
