Being a single Mom, I was really apprehensive about engaging my family in my adoption journey. FoJ resources gave me strength. I now feel much more relaxed and confident in dealing with the truth, my passion and my family in involving them in my decision. Thank You FoJ!

We would have waited for several months to get our reference, had it not been for FoJ Counsellor who shared the children’s availability data across States and Age groups. We changed our preference and received our reference within 2 months.

We were scared to tell our 8-year old about his adoption. We were under influence of Bollywood and family who advised us against sharing the truth. With FoJ’s sound advice, we are now a happy family where we do not have to be on guard in front of our son.
