Providing Coaching & Support Before, During, and After Adoption… because you need more than love

Is Adopting a Child Right for Me?

Our experienced, certified coaches asked themselves the same question. Being part of adoptive families either as an adoptee, an adoptive parent, or a birth parent, they have been there and lived it. They can help you decide if adoption is right for you. If you choose to adopt, our coaches offer skilled support through the questions, paperwork, and interviews that adoption requires. Having adopted, they stand ready to assist you through any relationship twists and turns that you might face as an adoptive family.

You don’t have to do it alone.

During the Adoption

“Some of the benefits I received from your coaching were thoughtful conversation … and brainstorming ideas to help me get through some difficult times … I would describe the coaching experience as relevant and thought provoking. I was accountable for myself because I knew we would converse next meeting on whether or not I had followed through”


“”[My coach] is a fantastic coach. She is able to build good rapport and has extensive technical knowledge while bringing in the softer side of issues based on actual experience. I would highly recommend her.””


“My GIFT coach “actively listened and understood my kids as Korean Adoptees. Each week I was given an assignment to achieve prior to meeting again. If I was unable to follow through on the assignment, we discussed my obstacles and challenges. [My coach] has a direct approach of continually challenging me by taking small steps toward my initial goal and eventually achieving it.”
