When we started looking at adoption agencies, we knew we wanted one that understood the complexities of the process. When we found Full Circle, we saw their commitment to all members of the adoption triad and knew they would be the agency for us.
Thank goodness for Full Circle, as they held our hands and walked us through the process every step of the way! They demonstrated all the patience, knowledge, and understanding under the sun!
The team at Full Circle spent the time and effort to help us determine our needs and worked diligently and rapidly to fulfill our hopes to adopt a new baby. They left nothing to chance and even helped us find an outstanding foster mother while the adoption was in process.
From the moment we made initial contact with A Full Circle Adoptions, we knew we had found the place that would complete our family. The wonderful staff and unbelievable director, Molly, guided us through the entire process. They felt like family and treated us as such.
Full Circle truly creates a circle around families. That circle feels protective, supportive, loving and genuine. Full Circle is the absolute reason we successfully adopted our second son.
Molly and her team were instrumental in helping us grow our family. When we started looking at adoption agencies, we knew we wanted one that understood the complexities of the process. When we found Full Circle, we saw their commitment to all members of the adoption triad and knew they would be the agency for us. We have adopted two children through them and during each process we felt supported and connected to the team. Even several years removed from the successful adoption of our youngest child, we stay in close contact with Molly and always know she is a resource for us to turn to. We are forever thankful for Full Circle guiding and supporting us throughout the years.

Full Circle was wonderfully engaged in what we anticipated would be a challenging adoption process: two moms, one early 40’s and one a few decades older. We were open to any situation presented, Molly and her team assisted “feeling out” potential matches that sometimes raised concerns, and ultimately were flexible to help shift us through various scenarios leading to a match where multiple agencies were involved. When that adoption fell through due to a catastrophic genetic disorder that would not end in the birth of a healthy baby boy, both Full Circle and the bio-mom’s agency were there to help us recover. That partnership ultimately led to an unexpected adoption literally days ahead of the nationwide shutdown for COVID-19. Through fast-tracked legal, medical, insurance, and travel arrangements that were required to get our new family home from out-of-state, we had Full Circle’s complete support and for that, we are eternally grateful and remain advocates of their mission!

We chose Full Circle for the adoption process of our first son, Mac because of the positive experience we had during our orientation. This positive experience held true throughout our time with them. We couldn’t have found better people to guide us on our adoption journey.
The team at Full Circle was amazing. They held our hands when things were tough and guided us on being everything we could be during and beyond both of our adoption journeys for our sons, Mac and Andre. Molly, the director, communicated with us in a timely and supportive manner. She was always at the other end of the phone line whenever support was needed or pertinent information was shared. Our social worker, Julie, was so trustworthy and honest with us. The office administrators were so helpful and swift with their replies.
Full Circle truly creates a circle around families. That circle feels protective, supportive, loving and genuine. Full Circle is the absolute reason we successfully adopted our second son. Without them, we wouldn’t have Andre.

From the moment we made initial contact with A Full Circle Adoptions, we knew we had found the place that would complete our family. The wonderful staff and unbelievable director, Molly, guided us through the entire process. They felt like family and treated us as such. We welcomed our beautiful daughter in 2018. In 2020, Molly reached out to us because she had met grandparents who were raising their 7 year-old granddaughter and were looking for a forever family. Molly and her team, who typically don’t come across older children’s adoptions, went above and beyond and guided our families together. In 2021, we officially adopted our middle daughter. A Full Circle Adoptions gave us the beautiful family we have today and we couldn’t be more grateful to them. – Heather
Dear Full Circle:
With this note we would like to say thanks to you and your team, for your wonderful work. Your professionalism, knowledge and patience were terrific and especially your warm guidance was marvelous.
From the beginning we realized that, because of our Dutch citizenship, it was a whole lot of extra work for you to help us fulfill our dream. You took it as a big challenge and found all the answers you needed to help us, even by talking with the Dutch ministry to enlarge your knowledge concerning our Dutch adoption law. That was great.
During the whole procedure, there wasn’t a question we had, that was not answered in less than two or three hours, no matter when, day or night. You are very accurate and prompt.
Above all, we have experienced you Marla as a very warm and respecting person without any judgments. You have spent a lot of time talking with us to get yourself the right picture of us. Looking back, we realize you did know exactly who we are.
You helped Chhaya’s mother and us, with all our special wishes, into a wonderful adoption that fits us all very well.
Thank you so much.

Dear Full Circle, When Tricia and I got married we knew it was important to both of us to have a family. Since we also knew there were potential obstacles to having a child in the most typical fashion, we started thinking about adoption from the very beginning. After a couple of years of marriage, we decided the time was right and we found Full Circle.
We were quite fortunate and did not have to wait a very long time for a placement, buteven so, the process of adoption is challenging. When you adopt, if you are at all introspective, you reexamine your own life and childhood. You think about your own parents and the things you liked and didn’t like about how you were raised. If you’ve lost a parent, you think about that too. The adoption process takes you deep inside yourself.
I think one reason, among many, that we found the experience so profound was that we came out of the process not just with a beautiful new baby, but also with a better sense of ourselves. Full Circle was part of the biggest growth experience my wife and I have ever had and for that we’ll always be grateful.
Regards, Matt and Tricia
We looked long and hard at adoption and the different agencies that were out there. I initially thought I wanted domestic and open, and while that’s what we wound up with, what I learned in the process was more complex than that. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t trust anyone other than Full Circle to assist with a domestic interstate adoption, and I am continually reminded when I hear other people’s adoption stories about how thorough and respectful Full Circle was. Not just respectful of our time and needs, but deeply committed to giving birth parents the most choices and best experience they can have in what is otherwise a challenging time for them. In short, beware of adoption agencies that pretend adoption is a simple process – they’re probably hiding something. And as a trans-racial family now, I appreciate the thought and care put into the process of preparing us even more now.
We didn’t want today to pass without taking a moment to remember all of your work on our behalf to make what is now a very, very happy family of three possible. There were certainly major highs and lows throughout our journey, and you were there for all of them. It felt right to be sitting next to you this morning, as everything did indeed come “full circle.” We spent much of the day waiting to meet K under an ancient ginkgo tree way back in October. That we were able to travel back to that tree today for a family photo was incredibly special. In many ways, you have been as solid as that tree for us–steady when high winds hit, sheltering in moments of grief, joyful when our dreams finally grew into reality. We wish you the very best and sincerely hope that we remain in touch.
