Adoption & Infertility Resources

Our Adoptions:
For Isabel's adoption, we worked with Faithful Adoption Consultants from beginning to end. FAC is based out of Atlanta, Georgia & work with families all over the U.S. who are pursuing domestic adoption. After we were matched, we started working with an adoption attorney in Georgia.

Noah's adoption was a unique situation. We were matched with his birth mom through a ministry called Danielle Inn. Once his birth mom chose us, we hired a local adoption attorney, Todd Gaudin, to handle the adoption.
