Hear From Our Families


I have no doubt that Audra and Kathy advocated for us and had ours, our son's and our son's birthparents' best interest at heart. If my husband and I ever decide to adopt again, we will definitely be seeking their help and we would refer them to anyone in the process of expanding their family through adoption.

We found them to be consummate professionals, while still maintaining a personal connection with us and our birth mother throughout the process. Whether we needed guidance from people with more experience, or a sounding board to speak about our concerns during the waiting periods, Kathy and Audra were always there. Sometimes adoption journeys are hard. It’s important to surround yourself with people who can assist you during the rough moments, and these women were a source of stability and grace under pressure during our adoption journey.  I am eternally grateful to have had their guidance during the process, and I would absolutely work with them again.

Throughout our adoption journey we’ve encountered many adoption professionals. We can say that no one comes close to being as savvy with open adoptions as Kathy and Audra.  They were the only ones we were able to trust to lean on and pick up the pieces when our previous adoption agency closed its doors.  Their knowledge of and compassion for building families through adoption allows them to offer services benefiting all members of the adoption triad.

When we met Kathy and Audra at our 1st workshop meeting, we instantly felt a connection to both of them. Both Kathy and Audra were so helpful in the process of explaining everything to us from the very beginning. We had so many questions but we were never made to feel like any one of them was unnecessary or redundant. We have such love and gratitude for both of these ladies for the work that they do every day to bring birthparents and babies together with the adoptive families that are waiting for them. We would highly recommend Foundations for Growth and Kathy and Audra to anyone who is interested in learning more about open adoption!

Audra took what was a very emotional chapter in our lives and turned it into a time of joy. Her guidance, patience and very timely answers to our numerous questions made the process seamless. Her future clients will be lucky to have her on their side and we know that she will continue to bring joy to many families in the future.

We can’t say enough great things about Kathy and Audra! Audra was very supportive and professional, not just as things became difficult while anticipating our son's arrival but also after his birth during postpartum recovery issues with our son's birthmother. They are one of the few adoption professionals we felt remained our constant support and we recommend them to anyone interested in adoption. Kathy and Audra’s hearts are truly set on the best interest for everyone involved and we
can’t be more grateful for them!

Just when we thought we lost all hope, Audra and Kathy came to our rescue! We don't know how we would have made it through the adoption process without Foundations for Growth! Thank you for being our support system in addition to providing our home study, counseling, advice for us and our birth family and being in our corner the whole way through! You were always there no matter what day or time and were available to guide us on the right path. You fought any obstacles for us when we didn't know if we had it left in us to do it ourselves. Through many adoption services and people we encountered on our adoption journey, we couldn't be more thankful for the level of service, love and friendship you have shown us and our daughter! Thank you for being part of our adoption family!
