EXCERPTS FROM LETTERS OF SUPPORT
Mary Lou Rath, Former State Senator
New York State’s greatest resource is our children, and we are now fortunate to have such a wonderful new program working for their benefit.
Rosemarie LoTempio, Former Majority Leader Councilmember-At-Large City of Buffalo
I applaud the efforts of the Adoption STAR Agency and I am pleased to add my name in support of their presence in Western New York.
Joel A. Giambra, Former Erie County Executive
The Agency is committed to the recruitment and placements of infants and children into a permanent family environment. And I feel they would have a positive impact on improving the quality of life of many of Erie County’s most vulnerable residents — children. That is why, without hesitation, I support the NYS authorization of Adoption STAR as a local non-profit adoption agency.
William A. Pauly, Former Erie County Legislator – 14th District
I believe you have identified an important area of need for adoption services and I applaud your emphais on adoption education.
Jim Hayes, Member of Assembly – 142nd Assembly District
Our office is delighted to have an agency offering numerous adoption services in the area… there is great demand for such services within the community and it would help lift a heavy burden off local families wishing to adopt in knowing where to go for help…
Barry A. Weinstein, M.D., Former Erie County Legislator – 15th District District
The idea behind Adoption STAR will benefit all children from different walks of life.
Marc Frost, MD
Adoption STAR will allow families seeking to adopt the opportunities to receive assistance for this difficult task.
Monica Y. Jackson, Adoptive Parent
For once there is an organization, Adoption STAR, who has their focus in the right direction and truly desires to focus on the best interest of the child.
Daniel I. Rifkin, MD
Clearly there is a lack of available resources in our region for women with unplanned pregnancies… Adoption STAR will fill a void in our current childcare system.
Randy S. Margulis, Esq.
Adoption STAR’s mission is to offer the community an agency that is dedicated to excellence. I believe that they will strive to offer comprehensive educational and counseling services to adoptive families, birth families and adoptees. I strongly support them in this effort.
Courtney, Birth Mother
Adoption STAR was great at helping me find a great family for my baby. I felt very comfortable with everyone at the agency and extremely comfortable with my decision. I would not have been able to get through this situation without your services. You saved my life.
Jennifer, Prospective Adoptive Mother
We cannot tell you how much this packet and the follow-up letter that came a few weeks afterward speaks about the quality of agency that Adoption Star is. I have contacted numerous agencies over the years via email, telephone and in written mail and not one other single agency compares to the attentiveness and level of compassion that shines through in your single packet presentation. I am sincerely touched and grateful to have finally met an agency that I do believe my husband and I could feel comfortable moving forward with so that we could become a family and not just remain a couple.
Gabriella Augusta Cassandra Walker, Adoptee, 8 ½ years old
I was adopted as a baby. I love Adoption STAR because they gave me a family! I love Adoption STAR’s family picnics because I get to see and meet all the other kids who are adopted like me. I am also very proud to say that I was one of the first babies adopted through Adoption STAR and I think that is AWESOME!! Adoption STAR ROCKS!!!
