Customer ReviewsSee All
Thank you!! I’m loving the interviews so far!
I’ve been listening to “creating a family” for a few years now, my husband and I were going through our options and making decisions regarding adoption. The content was so helpful in guiding us to our decision, helping us decide what factors we would be comfortable accepting in a match, and providing guidance and wisdom on parenting “kids from hard places”. We continue to listen and on world adoption day we finalized my sons adoption. Thank you guys for all your support!
