Monica's Ratings:
Pros: We adopted two beautiful baby boys from HOA. The staff is amazingly empathetic, caring and attentive. They take care of both the adoptive family and the birth family, assuring the best possible future for the child. In both situations, the adoption could have been complicated but the amazing people at HOA swiftly handled the issues, making the adoptions successful for all involved. They truly care about each child they advocate for. Also, in both circumstances we were American citizens living outside the US, once in Canada and once in China, and they helped us manage the immigration issues so we could get home with our baby. They also helped us to arrange semi-open adoptions with our tummy mummys. We cannot recommend HOA more. We will forever be indebted to them for helping us start our young family. Thank you HOA.

Cons: Honsetly, I cannot think of any negative experience or feedback.

Reviews: I enjoyed working with everyone I came into contact with at HOA.

Pros: We felt that most of the staff was very kind and helpful. Susan who did our homestudy before and after the placement was amazing and we would recommend her to anyone! The whole process was fairly smooth and we were matched with the most wonderful birthmother. While there were some stressful times we are so pleased with the outcome!

Cons: Our first match was through the office in Naples and was not the most pleasant experience. It just seemed impersonal and when it failed there was a lack of sympathy and kindness. Our second match was through the office in Tampa and was great. There were times when it seemed like we were waiting for responses to emails for several days but I understand they are busy.

Reviews: So far everything has been great and we would definitely recommend this agency to anyone. I would suggest going through the office in Tampa just because we had such a positive experience there.

Peabody1's Ratings:
Pros: Our adoption process was quick and easy and we recieved wonderful support from the staff at Heart Of Adoptions as well as our appointed Case Manager. She came with many years of experience and used this to guide our adoption process to a quick and perfect match between the Birth-Parents and us, the adopted parents. I highly recommened this agency and we have already referred two potential adopted parents to them already.

Cons: The only con I'd like to mention is the cost of adopting Domestically. It is very expensive (28K) and unfortunately because of this, not everyone is able to adopt a child. Ours was successful from the first match but I don't know how much longer we would have pursued adoption if the costs were much higher because the second, third or etc. match fell through because the Birth Mother changed her mind, was influnced by others, etc. I am grateful that we were lucky enough to find success the first time. I belive the working experience of our Adoption Manger is to thank for this. She is well aware of the "warning signs" of the adoption process and told us she would be sure to tell us if any of them came up so we could back out and find another match or to pursue with the current match-up. It was always our decision.

Reviews: We were both very pleased with the adoption agency we choose and would choose it again if we decide to adopt another child.
