Dear Birthparent…

“We are Brian, Sara and William. As a Christian family
already blessed by adoption, we are excited to be
adding another member to our family. Being parents is the
greatest joy in life and we have lots of love to give another child.”

“After fostering children for over 1 year and being heart
broken over and over again that we couldn’t find a child
to add to our family, LCFS helped us to bring home our
wonderful addition from ET. What a blessing both our son
and LCFS were for our family!”

“Over 18 years ago our relationship with Lutheran Counseling and Family Services began.
Having been married a few years and realizing that we truly wanted to be parents but it
wasn’t in God’s plan for us to conceive, we turned to the task of finding an agency to
help us with adoption. Thankfully, our task was made easy when we were able to contract
with LCFS of WI to begin our journey to become parents. There was a certain comfort working
with people who truly understood how the whole adoption process worked and were willing
to help us along the way. The staff was there during the ups and downs that every adoptive
couple is sure to experience either with a much needed hug during a difficult time or shouts
of joy at a time of celebration. Since adoption is a very legally entailed process, it was
a comfort to know that there were people who truly cared for us and were willing to take care
of all the legalities so we would be able to reach our ultimate goal of being parents.

Not only does LCFS care for the adoptive family, but they are also very caring and supportive
to those seeking to make an adoption plan. This was of great concern to us as we wanted the
birth mothers/birth fathers/birth family to have all the resources they needed to be confident
in their decision. We feel it is important for those making an adoption plan to be actively
involved (if they so choose) since they are giving such a precious gift to another – the gift
of life! Our family is a success story times two as we have had two very successful adoptions
with the help of Lutheran Counseling and Family Services. Our first adoption was finalized in
1998 and our second in 2011. We have had the honor to work with many different individuals at
the agency and have been consistently pleased with their professionalism, abilities, and
compassion. Without a doubt, we have and will continue to refer others to LCFS who are seeking
an agency to work with in their journey to become a forever family. They will forever be a little
part of our family.”
