Thank You From Veronica and Carlos


BA GarciaWe knew we wanted to start a family and infertility treatments did not guarantee that. Our goal was to be parents no matter how and we decided adoption was the right path for us. We are incredibly lucky that the process took us 10 months. Everyone at Everlasting Adoptions was awesome and our experience was great. We could text the Director, Carol at any time and she would respond quickly. Lisa, our Birth Mother Coordinator was our sounding board once we were connected to a birth mother. Our birth mother was unsure if she wanted to place her baby and Lisa was instrumental in calming us down and talking us through that stressful time. If we could offer other adoptive parents a word of advice, it would be to try and remain patient. When they say “it happens when you least expect it”, it is true! If you have doubts reach out to someone. It WILL happen, it is just a matter of WHEN it will happen. 

Thank You From Scott and Kirsten


Kirsten and I had spent many years and tried many different methods to have children, but were unsuccessful. After some soul searching, we decided to pursue adoption. We would be lying if we said 30 months of waiting were not frustrating and angst filled, but in the end the wait was worth the amazing end result, our daughter Tuesday Elise. We also were able to find solace in the Everlasting Adoptions staff who were always there to ease our frustration, or answer our questions, or to just reassure us that everything we were experiencing was normal.

Since so many of the staff members at Everlasting Adoptions were adoptive parents themselves, they were able to understand our frustration and stress. They were always available and responded so quickly to our calls and texts. They aided us in meeting the birth family and helped us find lawyers. They also facilitated the first few meetings between us and the birth family.

For all prospective adoptive parents out there, try and be patient and trust the staff at Everlasting Adoptions. Be prepared to experience a total range of emotions, maintain strong communication, and be totally honest with yourself and others. If adoption is the path you have chosen, it will be worth it in the end.

Thank You From Julie and Mike

Mike and I turned to adoption after being told that we would be physically unable to have children. We had both always dreamed of having children, so we prayed and felt like this was the decision God had for us. After 2 years with Everlasting Adoptions and a few unsuccessful matches, we finally met the birth mom God had planned for us. On January 23rd, our precious daughter Natalee was born and she is worth every second of the wait.

We are forever grateful to Everlasting Adoptions and would especially like to thank Lisa, our Birth Mother Consultant. I don’t think we would have met our birth mom without her! The Everlasting staff are amazing. Through our ups and downs they never gave up on us.

If we could give one piece of advice to other prospective adoptive parents, we would tell them to keep faith that your time will come! We know from personal experience that this is easier said than done and at some points in our journey it seemed like it would never happen, but we were patient and finally got the call that forever changed our lives.

Mike & Julie

Update from Adoptive Mom Emily

"Hi, Carol. It has been a very long time since we have spoken, but I wanted to take a moment and send you a note. I'm not sure that you realize just how much you have changed my life. I adopted my son through your service a little over 6 years ago and he is absolutely the best thing that God has ever blessed me with. With your help, our adoption process was incredible and I couldn't have asked for a more caring and sympathetic person to help during that time in my life. I will be forever grateful to you for being my rock through one of the toughest but most fulfilling times I have ever experienced. Kade is the light of my life and couldn't be more of an angel. I couldn't have asked for a better son. He is a happy and thriving 6 year old first grader now, so I thought you might like an update. He is so special and has such a huge heart. I am having such a good time watching his personality grow and seeing the little boy that he is becoming. Thank you again for all that you have done for me and Kade. Thank you for all that you do to help birthmothers, families hoping to adopt and especially all the little blessings out there that need someone to love them. You and your staff are true angels on Earth!" All the best, Emily and Kade

Thank You Melissa and Jesse

Carol, I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that I am so impressed with your company and your staff. The way you have it all broken down into one step at a time makes it so easy to understand and to navigate. You have truly taken one of the most scary and seemingly impossible things and made it so easy! When contemplating adoption in the past, we were so overwhelmed and didn’t know where to begin. I had no idea that we could be walked through this in such a wonderful way. I am in awe every day that this is really the journey we are on right now and feel more blessed than I can ever say! A thousand thank yous, Melissa and Jesse

Thank You from the Bottoms of our Hearts!

Three years ago on this very day, we received the very best Christmas gift one can receive as a gorgeous tiny dark haired baby was placed into our arms and hearts. A beautiful momma who chose life, also entrusted us to be the forever family for her precious daughter. I tear when I think about the gift of life she gave to Evie when it would have been so convenient to make another choice. I tear when I think about this amazing little girl who is nothing but pure JOY to us and how very grateful we are to have been given this opportunity to raise, nurture and love her. I could go on and on about all of her incredible qualities: how she is spunky and fun, how she loves to be around friends and everything is a party to her, how her dancing and smile light up a room, how she brings books to bed with her instead of dolls, how she is so easy to parent and lead as long as you are logical about everything you do, she is usually super cooperative (she just needs an explanation, lol), how she is my little buddy and wants to be doing whatever I am doing right by my side. She is one gifted little girl and has been a blessing since day one on this earth. We are eternally grateful to Everlasting Adoptions for being the angels that guided us to our sweet baby girl and we are so thankful for the way that Carol Shepherd walked us through each step. She made us feel safe and taken care of and eased all of our fears along the way.

Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts!

Andrew, Ruth, Abby, Karis, Seth and Evie DePue
