We came in for one son. We made it clear from the start. We only wanted one child. Well, we learned early on that Another Choice doesn’t know anything about one. The staff kept preaching to us 'keep your hearts open...'Well, we ended up adopting two boys. They were meant for us.

~ Raymond

I never thought I would be an adoptive dad. The odds were certainly not in my favor. I had come from a very difficult background and even spent some time in foster care. But, I made a promise to myself that one day, I would adopt. Like so many folks, I came in with the intentions of adopting one son. But, I have been blessed to become an adoptive parent of two sons. I cannot imagine my life without them.

~ Tommy and Sharon

Sharon and I had been married for eight years. Prior to our marriage we had talked about having birth children, but we also wanted to adopt. Our first son, Oree came to us when he was barely eight months old. Since his adoption, we have been blessed with three more children: Zion, Isaiah and our birth son, Solomon.
Another Choice is more than an agency- they are part of our family. The support they have provided to us has been unbelievable.

~ Janice

If you are looking to adopt an older child, you should look no further than Another Choice. They were right there with me during both of my adoptions. I adopted a 12 year old girl, and a couple of years later, adopted a teenager. During my first adoption, which was a rocky start, I did wonder if the agency would hang in there after our adoption was finalized. Not only did they hang in there, they have become a part of our extended family. The staff at Another Choice is always there for me. My adoption has been finalized over three years, and my daughters are still involved in Teen Konnection and other programs offered through the agency.

They told us we would have to go to all these classes. I was not too happy about that since my husband and I had already raised two children. But during the classes, I learned about the foster care experience. I also learned some things about myself. It really helped us to be prepared for the three brothers and sisters that we adopted.
