Testimonials

Nate and Sara, Adoptive Parents
“Adoption is filled with many twists and turns, many of which are out of your control. Family Life Services was a guidepost for us in the midst of a challenging process. They walked patiently beside us as we maneuvered the paperwork process, they cried with us as we agonized over the international adoption wait and they celebrated with us when we brought our children home. I could not recommend this agency or their staff more highly. They are efficient, professional, responsive …and compassionate to the journey of adopted families. A rare composite.”
Matt and Becky, Adoptive Parents
“Prior to working with FLS we had a few hiccups in beginning our adoption journey and weren’t sure where to turn to for guidance and support. Family Life Services came alongside of us and provided that much needed guidance, support, and encouragement that we were seeking. They were with us through every step of the way and they still are as we navigate our mediated adoption. What a joy and a blessing it has been working with FLS! ”

“I came to FLS after delivering the most beautiful baby ever, yet I knew he deserved better than what I could give him at that time. The staff of FLS treated me with love and respect and was supportive of any decisions that I made. I placed Nicholas with a WONDERFUL family that I picked out just for him. He deserved the best and to me it was them. I have a great relationship with the adoptive parents and FLS continues to be a huge part of my life!”
Jay and Jennifer, Adoptive Parents

“When we started our adoption process, we are so eager to do whatever was needed and stayed busy with the paperwork, reading and preparing for hopes of a growing family.  Little did we know that our wait would be 2 years and 8 months.  When the days got quiet and the anxiety got high, I knew I could call our caseworker to be encouraged and be pointed to Christ and His timing.  Their professionalism never wavered but I always felt loved, prayed for and like I was talking to a friend who understood the ins and outs of the adoption process.

When our moment finally came that we had been chosen and our daughter was born, the staff rejoiced with us, shared in our experience and accommodated our requests.  Even after our journey, we still stay in touch with our caseworkers and consider them dear friends.  They continue to pray for us, guide us through relationships and continue to point us to Christ and His timing.  We could not be more thankful for our experience with FLS!”

FLS Birth Mother
“This ministry impacted me by giving me a chance to make the right decisions for my life. By placing Christopher with an adoptive family, I not only gave the adoptive family a chance to raise a son, but gave myself a chance to understand that if I had raised Christopher, he would not have had all the opportunities he has now. My relationship with the adoptive family has grown over the years and I have increasing respect for their role as parents. I now know how precious life is and am so happy that I gave Christopher life and a loving family.”

Andy and Amy, Adoptive Parents
“We had a lovely experience working with FLS. From the moment we connected with them, FLS has been on our side…not only working with us to make the adoption process go smoothly, but being a consistent resource for us as we learn how to navigate the waters of life after the “big day”. Our caseworker feels like a close friend that truly cares about our family and diligently seeks to provide the support needed, no matter what circumstances arise. FLS has made all the difference for us on this journey.”

Richard and Stacy, Adoptive Parents
“It has been a tremendous blessing to our family to work with FLS for all 3 of our international adoptions. Going through an international adoption is not an easy task, but with FLS we felt comfortable and confident with their help. They were caring, supportive and sensitive to our family and truly showed their love for Christ through their ministry. We are so thankful for FLS!”

FLS Birth Mother
“Although placing my son broke my heart, I focused on the future my son had ahead of him with his new family. That made the suffering and pain worth it. Adoption was the most beautiful experience I’ve ever been a part of. Sure, I had people say nasty things to me, but I’ve learned they don’t matter – my child is what matters. I get to see my beautiful baby grow up with two amazing parents and a sweet big brother who loves him so much. Most importantly, I have chosen an adoptive family who is constantly sending me pictures and emails and genuinely cares for me too, which makes the pain easier to bear. Adoption is hard, so hard. There is no “easy” part about it, but the love in adoption is stronger than anything I’ve ever felt before. I have no regrets about my decision…my heart is too full…too full of love for my son, love for the adoptive family & for FLS. I take every opportunity to share my “real life” story in hope that it will impact others in a similar situation.”
