Candace O’Brien [at Adopt America] is an AMAZING WOMAN! She is very intelligent and dependable. We have referred her to three of our friends and acquaintances since the completion of our adoption. During the adoption process, Candace was remarkable at communicating and instructing. I truly feel that Candace O’Brien became a dear friend through this process and hope to maintain a long lasting friendship with her!

Our daughter, Sierra, has made our life complete! She is very healthy and I think “the Perfect Child”…tee..hee!!

I thank God for bringing Candace and Sierra into our lives every day! The adoption process is an emotional experience and I feel that Candace was there for us emotionally and her professionalism was displayed at all times!

I met Candace O’Brien early on in my search for an agency and was immediately taken with her open, warm, and honest approach coupled with her depth of knowledge and professional integrity.

Candace supported me through the whole adoption process, providing guidance on the paperwork and forms I needed and also keeping me informed of exactly what was happening with my case. She always responded quickly to queries and questions.

I think the real test for an adoption agency lies in the question about whether someone who has already adopted a child through them would a) use that agency again for themselves and b) recommend them to their closest family and friends. In both situations my answer would be a resounding YES!

Candace, You know what the challenge is for you throughout this process? You go through months of drama during the pregnancy and things can get [sooooo freaking emotional]. You end up carrying all of that energy. Once the adoption is successful it’s also finalized so you don’t get to experience and see all of the AMAZING things that can happen in a couple’s life after a successful adoption. This is truly the result of your hard work and persistence. I guess when baby comes home and you’re no longer working with the couple it’s hard for you to remember how great and important and significant your job is. You really changed my life Candace and no words will ever be enough to thank you.


I cannot say enough wonderful things about Candace O’Brien and the staff!!! Candace has provided me with pictures, medical information and a sincere desire to complete the adoption as quickly as possible. She has remained in constant contact throughout the entire process offering advice, encouragement and guidance that is much needed during the wait!! She is always available to answer questions…..even the most ridiculous ones. Believe me, I have had plenty of those. She is patient, kind, understanding and very knowledgeable. She takes immediate action and does not allow anything to go unattended!! Like I said earlier, I cannot say enough about her and her agency other than the fact that she will see you through from beginning to end without hesitation.

Candace O’Brien, from our first conversation I had absolute confidence in you and you never let me down. It was clear that you offered a very personal service and I would not just be a number on your list. It was a pleasure to work with you, and because of you I have my darling Mariela.. We are both very happy and it’s all down to you. Thank you.

—C. Brown

Thank you so much for helping us with [our adoption] Candace. You were absolutely amazing.

The best thing we did is going with your agency. I hope many other families do as well. They won’t be disappointed.

You know Candace that had it not been for you I wouldn’t be a mother receiving the card from you! I doubt you’ll ever know that you are the most important person in our family. We would have NEVER known Vessie without you!….Remember, you are my hero!
