Adoption Birthmother Testimonials
I had just had my 20th birthday when I found out I was pregnant. I was scared AND excited at first - but the more I thought about it, the more my excitement subsided and I was just scared and worried. I started thinking about the baby, instead of myself. On one hand, I thought how fun it would be to have my very own baby to love and play with - at the same time I knew being a good mother to my baby meant more than that - MUCH MUCH more than that. My boyfriend said he would help me if I wanted to keep the baby but I knew he couldn't. He was only 22 and didn't have a job and I felt pretty sure we weren't going to end up marrying each other. Our relationship wasn't strong enough for that. He was the one who first suggested adoption.
We found Arizona Adoption Help on the internet and read about how they helped only the Birthmother and were right here in Phoenix. Most of the other agencies were really out of state, and not even here. I called and got right through to the lawyer, Kerry Moore. She immediately put me at ease with that loving, caring voice of hers. When I met her in person, I continued to feel that she really cared about me and my baby. She was with me every step of the way and helped me find the most incredible adopting family for my baby boy. The family, Tom and Kay, were with me right after the baby was born, caring for the baby and taking pictures of all of us. The excitement and love on their faces when they held my baby made me realize how much ALL of us loved the baby- and always would.
Adoption, something I never thought about before, is such a wonderful, loving experience. If you are pregnant and reading this, I hope you call Kerry.
I am writing this to other women out there who are pregnant and scared, like I was, and thinking maybe adoption is a good thing. I had two other children who my mom was helping me raise. The father of my unborn baby said he would help, but I knew I couldn't count on him. My sister had placed a baby for adoption a couple of years ago through Kerry Moore's office and had always said what a great thing adoption was. I called Kerry's office and spoke with Lynelle, who was so wonderful on the phone with me right away. She helped me get to her office and to the doctor for all of my appointments. I chose a great family, Ted and Mary, to adopt my baby boy. I asked Kris, the counselor who works with Attorney Moore's office, to be with me and the family in the delivery when the baby was born- and there she was at 5 a.m. in the morning! It was a wonderful experience and I am so happy for Ted and Mary, who now have a baby boy. I can't thank Kerry, Kris and Lynelle for all they did for me
Last year I found out I was pregnant. I was only 19 years old and already had a one year old son I was caring for. I couldn't believe it. I knew right away that I could not take care of another baby and thought maybe I could turn this into something good- I could help a family who couldn't have kids of their own. Kerry, Lynelle and Kris were so good to me. They helped me explain to my mother and sister why I chose adoption, because at first they didn't agree with me. But when they met the family at the hospital when the baby was born, they agreed with me. They loved the family and could see what a gift my baby was to them. And they came to understand that this was the best choice I could have made. I hope you read my story and think about all of these things if you are pregnant like I was and not sure what to do.
My husband and I already had four children when we discovered we were pregnant again. We were already so busy and trying to be the best parents we could be to our four children, we just didn't know how we could possibly bring another child into our family. After many discussions, we came to the decision that we needed to be fair to the children we already had, as well as to the unborn child, and decided to get information about adoption. We called Attorney Kerry Moore's office and were immediately put at east about the process. And, most importantly, when we looked at profiles of families who wanted to adopt because they couldn't have children, we instantly knew that adoption was the right choice. We chose Ginny and Robert, a wonderful family who had been trying to adopt for several years. Our baby girl was born last week and when we saw her in the arms of Ginny and Robert we cried - for joy! For joy for all of us.
I wish more people would consider adoption. We are so happy we did. Thank You Kerry, Kris and Lynelle for being with us and helping us find Ginny and Robert.

Adoption is not a difficult decision when you have a great support team on your side. Attorney Moore, Legal representative Lynelle, Counselor Kris, but most importantly the PERFECT adoptive parents Annie & Andy, to whom Attorney Moore introduced us. Our story seems to be ripped straight from a fairy tale. We all have developed a strong bond during the pregnancy and delivery of our baby that will last a lifetime. We have a beautiful boy that has brought two families together as one. My daughter loves her baby brother's mommy and daddy. It's not a hard decision when you step back and realize that it's the best decision, one that can be guided by God and a great support team. Thank you to everyone who helped us through this loving, extraordinary process.

Dear Kerry and Lynelle,
I really can't thank you enough for your time, support, warmth, thoughtful words and actions through my adoption journey. I knew nothing about adoption until I discovered I was pregnant, knew that I wanted more for this child whom I already loved, and picked up the phone and called Kerry to find out more about adoption. Kerry and Lynelle lovingly helped me through each step and helped me find Andrew and Cindy, a beautiful, caring, loving young family for me and my baby. I asked Andrew and Cindy to be there when my perfect little son was born. I couldn't have asked for a better family :-) We have all developed a truly magical family bond which we have continued with a mutual exchange of pictures and letters since the birth of my baby. My experience has been absolutely surreal. This is truly the epitome of a perfect adoption story and is almost beyond logical words :-). I hope any girl who is considering adoption and reading this will just have the courage to pick up the phone and call Kerry and Lynelle - and they will see what a loving experience adoption is. I know my baby has the home and future I wanted him to have.
If you are pregnant and considering adoption, I want you to know my story. My name is Gabby and when I found out I was pregnant, there was no doubt in my heart that adoption would be the option for my baby. When the doctor told me it was a boy, the name "Nathaniel",which means gift of God, was whispered softly to my ear. I contacted Attorney Kerry Moore and immediately her sweet and comforting voice was so reassuring that I knew she would take care of me and my baby. She helped me find Katie and Michael, the perfect family for my precious baby boy. I have such Joy to this day to know that there's someone who will love him like I do or more. I will leave you with the poem Katie gave me so you can see that unconditional love gives all of us hope. God Bless you all!!!
Dearest baby boy,
As you are reading this I want you to know how much affection we have for you. You were brought into this world by two very loving individuals who were seeking the best life for you. You were made with love and given to your parents with love. We pray that happiness is always with you and that GOD continually bless you every day that you are alive. We made this sacrifice for your well being and to give your parents the chance to love without limits. We will think about you and have love for you always. Remember precious baby boy you were made and given all the love in the world. Your parents are those who raise you and cherish you throughout all your endeavors so respect and honor them. As we will respect and honor them for being incredible loving parents for you.

Kerry, you, Lynelle and Kris have been AMAZING and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I know I made the right choice. The adopting family are like angels to me. I couldn't have never imagined a more perfect family and relationship.
My 16 year old son and I met for dinner with the adoptive family and the baby the night we left the hospital and my son told them how perfect they were for his little baby brother and how he knows he will never have to worry about him. He is so happy that his little brother has a Daddy, which is something he never had. The adoptive mom and dad both cried.
THANK YOU, Kerry, for all your amazing guidance and professionalism over the past several months. I will NEVER forget our first conversation and the sense of peace you gave me. You make such a difference in this world. THANK YOU.
I just placed my beautiful newborn daughter into the arms of her new family. A beautiful, loving family who I found through the office of Attorney Kerry Moore. My girlfriend had placed her baby for adoption through Mrs. Moore's office the previous year and had referred me to her. I am so grateful to Mrs. Moore's office for helping me find this perfect family to love, cherish and raise my daughter. I knew during my pregnancy that I could not provide the home to my baby that she deserved and I wanted so much more for her than I could give her. Her beautiful, loving new family has already sent me pictures of her in her new home. I know she is where she belongs and I can go on and work on my plans for my future knowing she is loved and will have the life I want her to have. If you are pregnant and thinking about what you should do, I sincerely think that you should consider adoption. It is a wonderful life plan for everyone concerned, especially the child.
At the age of 26 I found myself with an unplanned pregnancy. The father of the baby was out of my life. I knew abortion was not right. I felt that if I was pregnant, it was my responsibility to care for this child. I knew, however, that this child was entitled to far more than I was able to provide. I was emotional about the decision, but whenever I spoke with the adopting family, I was assured in my heart that my child had the future I wanted her to have. I love the family who adopted my daughter. They are so full of love for me and my daughter. They have a little boy four years old, who immediately claimed the baby for his own. I never thought I would be in a situation to have to make this choice, but when I did, I found out that it was a loving, courageous, unselfish decision, and I am proud of myself. And I am filled with love and peace when I think of my daughter with her new family.
When I found out I was pregnant I didn't know what to do. I'm not ready to be a mother but I knew abortion wasn't an option for me. My step-dad found Kerry Moore online. I looked at the web site and really liked what I saw. I gave them a call and spoke with Lisa Simpson who answered all of my questions and really made me feel comfortable. From then on out I had nothing but the best of experiences. I am so happy with the family they helped me pick and I don't regret my decision for a second. Thank you Kerry, Lisa, Kendis, Cindy and the entire gang at Kerry Moore's office, I couldn't have done any of this without all of your encouragement and support. I will never forget any of you.
This has been the hardest thing I have ever done. I never imagined myself ever being able to consider adoption. Then I tried to imagine your disappointments in not being able to have a biological child of your own and I realized that I am not being punished for becoming pregnant, but I am being given the opportunity to bless you with the greatest gift possible: a child to love.
During my pregnancy, I got to know you and in my heart I knew I had chosen the best possible parents for my child. I know that my son now has two loving, supportive parents who will give him what I cannot. I am proud to know that you are my son's parents.
– Rachel [An excerpt from Rachel's letter to the adopting family]
I was 31 years old and ending a three year relationship with my boyfriend when I discovered I was pregnant. I always wanted to be a mom and looked forward to becoming pregnant; however, these were not the circumstances I anticipated. I loved my baby boy from the moment I knew I was pregnant. I loved him with all of my heart. I loved him so much, but I knew I could not give him the life he deserved: a mother and father who were married and loved each other and a stable environment. I talked it over with my family and decided that placing him for adoption was the greatest act of love I could show him. He is with Brad and Suzanne, the family I chose for him. They are loving him and giving him the life I want for him. I know baby Ryan will always feel love from everyone who has touched his life. He is my most precious joy and will always be in my heart.
I was all alone and faced with an unplanned pregnancy. After considering my options, I contacted the office of Kerry Moore. I immediately felt so much better right after the first phone call. Kerry Moore's staff immediately began showing me wonderful families to choose from. They immediately helped me with some expenses for rent and food and immediately found a doctor for me. They held my hand all the way through my adoption. I chose a wonderful family for my child that I had the opportunity of meeting. I will remain in contact with them as my child grows. I am so happy to have found Kerry Moore and feel great about my decision.
My name is Lillian. Like you, I am pregnant. I am 31 years old with 4 small children. I know adoption is the right thing to do for everyone involved, especially my unborn child. Attorney Kerry Moore helped me right away by answering all of my questions. I feel relieved that I am planning something positive in my life and certain of my adoption plan. I know that I am giving a priceless gift to couple that cannot have a family any other way. Lisa, Attorney Moore's paralegal, stays in regular contact with me, answering my questions and working with my doctor's office. I am so happy I found their office.
How does a married couple explain to their family, friends and other children that they are placing a baby for adoption? We already had three children and felt our family was complete when I became pregnant. Peter and I seriously considered abortion - but when we looked at our beautiful, healthy children, we knew abortion just wasn't right. We then considered parenting another child. For many reasons, that didn't feel right either - especially for the three children we already had. We had seen many shows on TV about adoption, and started to look into it. As soon as we saw profiles of families wanting to adopt we started to feel that adoption was the right choice. We just had our baby recently and handed him to his new adoptive family. We were both surprised that we felt more joy for them than sadness for ourselves. Sharing our joy for this family was the way we explained our adoption decision to everyone. And they understood.
