Review for AD-IN INC, Adoptions of Indiana, Carmel, IN, USA
AOI has changed my life! I initially began working with them for an adoption home study. I quickly found them to be so much more than a step in the process to motherhood. Every person on the AOI team welcomed me and made me feel at home. The educational workshops opened my eyes and my heart to having an open adoption. We have a beautiful, loving open relationship with my daughter’s first Mom because of the love, support and guidance of AOI.
These classes also helped me connect to other prospective adoptive families who have become some of my best friends. As we have all added tiny family members in the last two years we have formed our children’s first circle of friends.
More importantly AOI provides loving support and counseling for expectant families as they make a plan for their child. They create a familial environment that wraps around each expectant parent and birth parent. They help develop a healthy triad relationship for adoptees, birth parents and adoptive parents.
AOI never forgets about the most precious and most fragile amongst us. They host adoptee groups that connect adoptees to one another. Providing opportunities for young people to know others with a similar experience breaks down many of the negative emotions they may have. It allows them to not be different for awhile and to talk about their hearts.
I am so grateful for the thoughtful and personal support AOI gives to each part of our uniquely created families. I know my daughter will be better off because AOI is a part of our lives.
