ACTX was the right choice for us as we went on our adoption journey as first time adoptive parents. I can't say enough about their communication, guidance, and genuine care for all parties involved in a highly emotional experience. We're forever grateful to have found ACTX and would work with them in the future if we ever move forward on the journey again. Thank you all!

I wish I could give 4.5 stars as they're really better than four stars, but not quite perfect :)As a potential single mom, it was difficult for me to find an agency that would work with me. But, once I signed on with Adoption Choices, the process moved quickly and I'm now a very happy, though somewhat exhausted, single mommy!I worked with a consultant, who referred me to three agencies. Adoption Choices was the #3 agency only because it was the most expensive and was not a flat fee agency (meaning you lose your money if the birth mother changes her mind). But, after nearly two years working with other agencies (without even being presented a case that fit my profile), I was willing to take the risk.The paperwork process with Adoption Choices was simple compared to the other two agencies. And, I was presented my first case that fit my profile immediately upon completion of the paperwork. My second case came just a few weeks later (also fit my profile), and the third case (my match), just a few weeks after that. All in all, it was about seven weeks from completion of paperwork to the time of match. And, in my case, the baby was coming the NEXT DAY! After that, it all moved so quickly, I'm just now (16 months later) coming up for air!Because of the circumstances of my case, I didn't meet our birth mom or have a relationship with her before birth. Also, I didn't meet or hear from the social worker until we met in the hospital and the baby was minutes away! I was completely unprepared for staying in the hospital for two nights with the baby (and, not being able to leave at all), but that isn't the fault of anyone - everything just happened so fast.The social worker was great, she balanced going between me and the birth parents. As expected, birth mom had some initial reservations, and our social worker talked us through it and tempered expectations/kept me grounded just in case. It was a rough 48 hours in the hospital (I don't know if anything can prepare you for this range of emotions), but just 72 hours after being presented a case, I was going home with my baby boy!Over the next six months, there wasn't a lot of communication from the agency, and I didn't really know what to expect. Luckily, I had the support of my consultant, and friends going through the same process with a different agency, whose baby was born just a month after mine. Their agency would check in on them at least two times a month; and prepare them with what to expect in the coming months. But, I didn't get this level of communication from Adoption Choices. The whole six month period, I rarely talked to them unless I initiated a conversation or they needed something (somehow I missed that I needed to be sending them records of the baby's doctor visits).Ultimately, everything worked out, but the one critique I would give Adoption Choices (and word of advice to families) would be that you can't over-communicate during the placement period. We (families) are completely emotional during this time and have a lot on our plates with the new baby, so anything that can be done to make the process more straight-forward would helpful. Also, the more communication there is helps to ensure expectations are reasonable and are in-line with reality. Perhaps consider a one-pager for the family that details the next steps and to-dos laid out by month after birth. Maybe it's just me because of the whirlwind first 72 hours, but most of what I was told upon leaving the hospital was a blur :)If I had it all to do over again, would I do anything differently? I don't think so. Everything I did got me to this perfect little fella. Would I work with Adoption Choices again? Yes, absolutely. Would I recommend Adoption Choices? Yes, and I have. Any words of advice for families just starting out? Communication is key!

We decided to go for adoption #2 in mid February. By the second week in July we were home with our child. Granted, having done this once before, the paperwork took significantly less time. But still, 4 months start to finish felt super fast. (In contrast our first took 2.5 years).Right from the first conversation, it felt like Jennifer was on top of things - efficient in both working through the process and communicating with us along the way. We felt confident and comfortable placing our trust in Jennifer and her team.Adoption is a complicated process. At the root of any adoption is loss/trauma/heartache. Having a partner that both understands and honors that is critical. We found ACofTX's concern for our birthmother heart warming.We recommend ACof TX without any hesitation.

We had such an amazing experience with Adoption Choices of Texas! They made our dream of becoming parents come true! We brought home our baby girl in October and couldn't be happier! Everyone we worked with was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, communicating exactly what we needed to do at every step of the process. We previously experienced 2 failed adoptions with other agencies. Adoption Choices of Texas placed us with a baby that was 2 days old, so we didn't have to wait for a long matching period. We were so elated to get this call and fly to Texas the next day to get our daughter! The counselor was so caring and wonderful to work with, helping us through the process at the hospital and with all the paperwork. I was so appreciative of the support that she provided to our birth mother and birth father. We are thrilled to have an open adoption, and she helped us to communicate with them initially so that we could start developing a relationship. We now email and text with them regularly. We are so thankful to have found Adoption Choices of Texas and can't say enough positive things about them!

I can’t say enough good things about Adoption choices of Texas. We had the opportunity to work with them 21/2 years ago with the adoption of our son. We had an amazing experience of open communication and getting to see how they work with not only us but meeting the needs of the birth mom also. We have two biological girls that just adore their little brother so it was no doubt that we felt the tug to add another little one to our family. We were so grateful to see that although we had 3 children we were still a desire for expectant moms. The sibling bond is priceless in our home and we are so grateful that our son now has a little sister who looks like him and also has an adoption story. It’s quite special. In our recent adoption of our baby girl we had an opportunity to compare how our agency worked against another. The contrast was night and day. It was amazing to see the love, care, and time our agency put in working with the expectant mother, taking care of emotional and physical needs, and then to also make sure our questions and needs were met also. They are amazing!! We are so thankful that we were able to work with Adoption Choices of Texas in bringing both of our children home.

We had a tremendous experience with Adoption Choices. We signed up with them in June and brought our newborn baby girl home in December so the overall process was very quick. Communication is definitely their strong suit as we always felt that our questions were answered thoroughly and thoughtfully. The adoption process is very complicated so we were happy to work with Adoption Choices who made each step along the way as easy as they could. As a gay couple adopting in Texas we were a bit nervous as we were researching agencies but I could not be happier with who we went with. They treated us fairly and were quite comfortably LGBT friendly. If you choose Adoption Choices, you will not regret it.

Adoption Choices of Texas has been a wonderful partner throughout the entire adoption journey. They made us feel like we were family and were always there to guide us and offer advice.Adoption can be difficult and it’s so important to trust the agency you choose. From start to finish, our social workers always went above and beyond. You never feel like you’re just another number... but rather part of the agency’s growing family. And they care equally for the birth parents and the adoptive parents, which is so much more necessary than you’ll ever know. Although you never know the outcome of an adoption, we always felt educated and supported by the agency staff.The staff at Adoption Choices of Texas becomes an integral part of your family and we just can’t imagine it any other way. We are so grateful for their guidance and support and can’t stop raving about how positive our adoption story is.We would absolutely recommend Adoption Choices of Texas to anyone who is considering adoption, in the home study process, or looking for an adoption agency. Whether you’re just wanting to speak to someone to better understand the process or you’re ready to sign on the dotted line, I have no doubt that Adoption Choices of Texas is the best choice! They changed our lives for forever and we will never be able to thank them enough for the gift of family!

We began working with Adoption Choices of Texas in the fall of 2022.  It was very important to us that the agency we work with supports the child's Mom beyond the pregnancy and placement for adoption.  The team with Adoption Choices truly cares about all aspects of families.   This is evident by the support they offer to Mom and the hopeful adoptive families throughout the journey.   The team is excellent at communicating and there to answer questions as they arise which was very important when our daughter arrived very quickly 2.5 weeks early.   They helped to make an exciting and stressful time much easier for us all.

We loved our experience with Jennifer Morrison and team at Adoption Choices of Texas. After a 4 year journey they stepped in towards the end of our process and helped us to accomplish what other consultants and agencies couldn't. It was God's timing for sure, but they were confident in their ability to help us reach our goal, and they did just that. We are forever grateful and recommend them to anyone looking to adopt! - Joe and Jen Sharp

Adoption Choices of Texas helped my wife and I fulfill our dream of becoming parents. Saying it was a positive adoption experience is an understatement. The agency was professional, extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and clearly communicated with us throughout the process. We were placed with the most amazing baby boy right before Christmas. It was the best Christmas present ever and made for the most joyful holiday as a new family. Our counselor was so friendly and helpful and facilitated communication with the birth parents, which we are so very grateful for. I can't recommend Adoption Choices of Texas enough!!!
