Beginning your Adoption Journey

Adoption STAR will be hosting an orientation session at its Buffalo office (47 Plaza Dr. Williamsville, NY, 14221) on Sunday, October 7, from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm. This session will be a great way to have all of your adoption questions answered by our experienced staff and learn more about Adoption STAR’s domestic and international adoption programs.

Starting the adoption journey can be a nerve-wracking thought. Recently we asked our Facebook followers (many of whom have adopted through Adoption STAR) to fill in this blank: “The beginning of the adoption journey is _______”

Answers included:

Sarah G.: “Exciting and nervous”

Belinda R.: “Exciting”

Jennifer K.: “Remembering to take deep breaths and establish your priorities”

Emily K.: “A wonderful decision then lots of paperwork :)”

Kelly M.: “Putting trust in your faith.”

Kara P.: “So worth it.”

Mosey M.: “A life long process. (Our son Evan is two years old and I still feel like we are just beginning.)

Maria W.: “Easier than you’d think. Once you start, you have STAR there to hold your hand throughout the journey (if, like me, you need hand-holding).”

Amanda B.: Amazing when you see how selfless birth mothers can be. I have so much respect for every birth mother who chooses LIFE for her baby.”

Susan L. “LONG.”

When you attend an Adoption STAR orientation, you get to hear from an adoptive family that has already adopted, and this family will answer many of your questions about their journey.

For more information and/or to RSVP for the orientation session on Sunday, October 7, please email the agency or call (716)639-3900.

We hope to see you there!
