I vividly remember the first time we met Mindi. We were so nervous, and anxious. We didn’t know what to expect; Would she like us? Would we say the wrong thing? Thankfully, Mindi put us at ease from the get go. She was so warm and made us feel extremely comfortable. Also, she exuded confidence and true enjoyment in her job, which really made us feel very at ease. Actually, when we were in her office that first day, we received the call that there was an opportunity in Oklahoma to adopt a baby who was due in 20 days. From that moment, Mindi did everything in her power to expedite the Home Study. She even overnighted it to Oklahoma when we were there, which was tremendous help. Once we were home with our son, I remember her home visits vividly. It was like a friend was coming over, and her excitement and happiness for us was so sweet. In 2007, we contacted her again because we wanted to adopt again. With the great experience we had with Mindi, we couldn’t think of anyone else we wanted to work with more. When my husband and I think about our adoption of our son, Mindi is an integral part of it. We can’t thank her enough for her professionalism, care, and thoroughness. Anyone who has the privilege to work with Mindi will find her knowledgeable, extremely capable, and above all, to have a huge heart.” – Zurita Family

We originally met Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc. during a community outreach program where the agency participated in a panel of adoption specialists for the purpose of educating those who were looking to get started with the adoption process. We were also strongly encouraged to use Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc.’s services by a friend, so we were convinced that this was the company we wanted to go with. From the moment our Adoption Counselor walked into our home we were immediately put at ease (prior to this moment we were panicking about the first visit). Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc. had provided us a packet to start working on the home study paperwork, and during their first visit they offered to help us with any issues we were having with the process. They conducted a very thorough interview, however we never felt that our privacy was being intruded on as we had heard happens sometimes during this process. Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc. was able to be objective in collecting the information they needed, while also being supportive of us as an adoptive family. At every visit they closed with asking us how we were doing and if they could provide us any additional information. Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc. was also very punctual in arrival to visits as well as completing and submitting the reports we needed, which is something that is important to us. They let us review the reports prior to finalizing them to ensure that they had all of the information accurate. As we moved to post placement visits, we felt strongly that Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc. was an important part of this journey for us as they watched us bond with our new child… in fact, we looked forward to their visits because we knew our Adoption Counselor would be so excited to see how our daughter was doing, and we had a strong resource to help us understand the process ahead of us. It is fitting that Adoption Resources & Counseling, Inc. was there with us as we participated in our final hearing and celebrated one of the best days of our lives.” – S & D Family
