"I feel like I really bonded with you throughout the whole situation and I really appreciate your help and acceptance when nobody else was there for me. I know it's your job but you definitely went above and beyond to make me feel stronger. I honestly think I would have fallen apart without your guidance. Thank you.”
"I feel good about everything... I know I made a great choice with the adopting parents. It warms my heart to know they are finally able to go home and they can start their new lives. I am very happy with my parent choice. They were almost too good to be true, and I couldn't have asked for a better agency to represent me. I want to thank you the most Nancy. You were so sweet and patient, I am truly grateful. Thank you, for everything."
"Thank you, honestly thank you for always being there for me. This is very important to me and the birthfather, so hopefully the baby will always have a picture of the two people who gave up everything for her to hopefully have the best life. Honestly, I could never thank you enough for not judging us. And being extremely compassionate in this situation. You go above and beyond and having you as our counselor, we feel truly blessed. Again, thank you for all that you do."
