Review for Kinship Center, Salinas, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Absolutely the most ethical place in the state of California to pursue adoption. Husband and I worked with attorneys, physicians, social workers, etc. before finally finding Kinship Center.

Staff, professionals and their business model are extremely accountable, professional, kind. They are not here to swindle, push, manipulate, or take advantage of adoptive families, birth parents or foster families. Staff is not afraid to answer the tough, uncomfortable questions. Also highly recommend their fost/adopt classes vs. the county which is really hard to navigate.

They take great care of the birth families, mothers, dads, etc. and are available long-term for anyone in the adoption process who needs care or guidance. Birth moms are not pressured to commit to adoption. As adoption is not the choice for everyone, Kinship can help birth mother's figure that out. Not at all the methodology or pressure of a 'facilitator', private attorney or religious group.

It's a miracle we finally found them. Can not say enough good things about their professionalism, expertise and support after we've lived through the other options in So. Cal.

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

Orange County office, Redlands office.

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

closer to my home.
