  • I cant say enough wonderful things about these amazing ladies. We have been working with an agency for close to two years with no matches so I thought it would be helpful to get ourself out there more with Adoption for my child. Kylie built us a beautiful profile I mean wow! We sent our profile out to quite a few situations with nothing really. So we kept praying and praying, and we were actually matched through our agency finally and accepted our situation with them. Within a few days Amy reached out to tell me we were matched with Adoption for my child. I wish we had found them years ago, within a matter of a few short months they matched us even though we had just matched 3 days prior with our agency. I truly feel these wonderful ladies work from the heart and are working hard to match each and every family they come in contact with. I know that in the future if we are able to adopt again they will be getting our business. Wonderful, amazing, sweet, kind and loving is what I can say about them.

  • My wife and I had the privilege to be chosen by an expectant mother who was due in just 2 weeks – yikes!We had been working with Adoption STAR and had not been profiled and I felt some type of way.I signed up with Adoptimist and almost immediately a women named Amy Senior messaged me about a baby whose parents were trans/non-binary and in a polyamorous triad and she felt based on my Adoptimist I might be open to this situation. It did not work out as both my wife and I are Latina and were specifically hoping to adopt a child of color. I felt so seen in being contacted for a situation that had components to it that many prospective adoptive parents might not understand and have judgement about.

    So I made a profile with Adoptin For My Child and immediate started receiving “situations”. My wife and I submitted to be profiled for about 3 of them. And then I get THE email.

    A situation was sent of Amy and Kylie with Adoption For My Child and they reached to me urgently about the situation as the expectant mother wanted a Latina/o family and were open to all family configurations. She also lived in California and while I no longer live there, my entire family does. The kicker was, the EM was viewing the profiles in just a few hours.

    Amy and Kylie went out of their way to gather and send all my stuff to the EM to view and called me to say we were a tentative match. Amy stayed by me through the whole process which was beyond what she was required to do. They did not get big money from me but gave me big and loving support.

    We FaceTimed with the EM that Friday and had a sweet conversation. Signed the paperwork on Monday (lawyer). And got a text: my water busted!

    I made it to California Tuesday morning and the EM handed me the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen.

  • I was in the “adoption world” for about two years before finding and connecting but with Amy at AFMC. Once connecting with her it was like a breath of fresh air. Amy and her team are phenomenal. Never once did I feel alone. She listened to me, my fears, my concerns, and she advocated for me as if she were advocating for herself. Any question I had she helped me find the answer. AFMC has gone above and beyond to connect me to my forever baby. I hope to recommend this to friends and family that may want to take their adoption journey. If/when I am ready to adopt again, Amy will be the first person I call.

Client Comments

  • Amy came across our adoption Instagram account and connected with us. After only a few interactions, we quickly realized Amy was a truly unique person in this field. She cares and relates on a personal level and is invested in the best outcome for all parties- the child, the birth family and the adoptive family. Through Amy we learned of an available situation seeking same sex parents. We were thrilled to share our profile through AFMC and ecstatic to learn the birth mother chose us. In moving forward, we had to go through another individual (not affiliated with AFMC) who was rushing us into a contract, allowing no time to consider if it was right for us. Amy called and helped us talk through the situation. Her experience, guidance and genuine commitment to the best outcome literally made the difference. We could move forward confidently on the journey that would bring us our son and a sibling for our daughter. AFMC has grown considerably since then and will continue to grow; creating beautiful, loving families and connections because of Amy’s true passion for this work. We’re grateful for everything Amy has done for our family and feel incredibly lucky to have connected with her.

Client Review

  • Working with Amy and AFMC has been such a game changer for me. I’m adopting as a single mom and sometimes that can feel really scary. You have to make all these huge decisions by yourself that, quite literally, will influence the rest of your life. I had been working with a local agency who is professional and experienced, if not a little short staffed. They were very helpful through the home study approval process. But, once I was approved and my profile was listed, I was mostly on my own. Months would go by without hearing from them, and it often felt like they had just forgotten me. I am sure it was simply a function of their size and available staff. But, it felt lonely and deflating.I originally signed up with AFMC as a way to share my adoption profile more widely. The cost was nominal compared to other profile marketing sites. What I didn’t realize, is that the profile marketing is really only the tip of the iceberg.

    Amy is more like an experienced friend walking beside you through the process. She checks in personally to see how things are going because she’s been in your shoes and how it feels to wait, Amy makes sure you never feel like you are waiting in the dark. When your profile is shared in an available situation, she keeps you posted and lets you know when a family is chosen so you are never left wondering. I was approved and my profile went live with my agency in June, with very little engagement or activity beyond that. I joined AFMC in late November and was matched with an expectant mother in mid-February.

    Since being matched, Amy has helped me through every step. Including helping me to build a friendship with the expectant mother who chose me. I honestly am just so grateful for all of Amy’s help, time, and attention. I look forward to staying in touch after the adoption is finalized. And, if I am able to adopt again, she will be my first call.
