  • Find children and provide a positive and supportive adoption experience for adoptive families, while reducing their financial and emotional risk.
  • Always act in the best interest of the adoptee.
  • Maintain an environment governed by inspiration, integrity, mutual respect and fiscally sound practices.

This is our 3rd adoption with Heart to Heart and we have loved everyone.  Anyone we talk to or deal with has been very helpful and understanding.  Any concerns were dealt with quickly and professionally, yet loving.  We have recommended many friends and acquaintances t H2H because of our wonderful experiences.

Scott and Jessica

We had 3 failed adoptions.  The first one was a unique blow.  Our 3rd and final failed adoption was handled beautifully by staff.  Staff cried with us and was angry and frustrated at how we were “played.”  that brought to light how bad Heart to Heart was fighting for us to get us placed.  God had a different, more beautiful plan.  We thank God and his tools (Heart to Heart) for giving us this miracle.

Alan and Janelle

We have worked with 2 other agencies and hands down, Heart to Heart was the best to work with.  Everyone we dealt with was great.  We have always been treated with respect and our questions were answered in a timely manner.

James and Catherine

We are forever grateful for Heart to Heart and all who work there!  Without you, we would not have our sweet boy.  Thank you for all your hard work, understanding and generosity.  We hold you dear in our hearts.  We especially appreciate your sensitivity to birth mothers’ needs.

Kole and Rachel

From start to finish, Heart to Heart has been simply amazing.  Having an adoption fall through earlier in the year, we know fist hand how much difference having a quality agency presence means.  From Linda, Julie and other Heart to Heart reps, to everyone at the hospital, we could not be any happier with our experience.  Heart to Heart is more expensive than other agencies we have seen, but the benefit of having such a strong support system behind you is priceless.  Heart to Heart is simply the best.
