Adoption Details:

Child's Age: 0y 0m
Start Date: May 1994
Status: Homestudy and documentation
Type: Open, Domestic, Interstate
Special Needs: No
Child from Eugene, Oregon, United States

LED's Ratings:
Pros: None. Everything we were told was a lie. The agency took money, took the baby, and then dropped the consumer parents and the birth parents like a hot potato.

Cons: Sheri Levine actually made the comment, "Oh those birthmothers." She has bought herself more than a few children, and has mastered the legal system for all consumer parents so that no one is accountable once the child is placed. Very irresponsible and unhealthy for the child.

Reviews: Just opt for a closed adoption. It is the same thing, without all the OA&FS lies. They have ruined many lives, most importantly the lives of children that were 'placed' by them.

Kens08's Ratings:
Pros: They are wonderful!!!! We were matched in four months. They are there to support you every step of the way. They are very informed, educated and caring. We came to them from a failed horrible situation with another agency. They were understanding and helped us heal. The counseling to us and the birthmother is above and beyond. Our family has lifetime counseling from them. They stepped right in when things got tough and sucessfully smoothed them out. They are the best!

Cons: Their adoptions are very open. Not to say this is a con, but they are not semi, which is more what we were hoping for.

Reviews: They are very supportive. They really strive for a healthy open relationship with all parties for the benefit of the child.
