“After 8+ years of becoming a “pro” at infertility treatments, it was hard to be the “newbie” in the adoption world! Building Blocks was the only agency we contacted that offered a beginners webinar to help get us started! Throughout our journey, BBAS was great at providing instant and helpful communication (Even the day I called 3 times in an hour because I kept thinking of questions!) Not only did BBAS keep ME sane, they also provided support and information to my daughter’s birth mom throughout her journey, which was very important to my husband and me.
We were matched 6 months after the completion of our homestudy, which, thankfully was much quicker than we had anticipated. Building Blocks was also helpful in working with the organization that gave us an adoption grant! They had never worked with the organization, but were willing to make accommodations for us, to be sure we got all the financial help we needed to bring our baby girl home. I have already recommended BBAS to 2 friends hoping to start their families through adoption, and will continue to do so.”
“It was our experience with Building Blocks during our adoption journey that made all the difference. We looked at several different agencies over a course of three years or so, and we kept coming back to Building Blocks because we liked that they were a Christian organization and that their packet of information was informative, but not overwhelming or confusing. It was a friend that told me that a co-worker of hers adopted successfully through Building Blocks and really liked them. It was all we needed to give us the push to begin the adoption process. Word of mouth is a powerful thing. The biggest difference between Building Blocks and other agencies we’ve spoken to is their rapid communication, level of attention and care. They are extremely personable. The adoption process can be a very emotional journey. We never once felt like we were a number or that it was strictly a business deal. We asked a bazillion questions and they were extremely informative and sensitive to the way we felt through the adoption process. They were involved every step of the way. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Denise and her wonderful staff. They were always quick to respond and checked in on us regularly through the process. When we would email Denise about things, she would pick up the phone and call, or respond very quickly. She really made us comfortable and we felt we could really trust her and everyone that worked at Building Blocks. We were blessed with a handsome little boy and life with our bundle of joy has been absolutely, over-the-top amazing. We would highly recommend Building Blocks Adoption in Ohio!”
“My experience with Building Blocks has been nothing short of incredible. As a young, single woman looking to adopt my first child, I expected a very long and difficult process. I was very wrong, thanks to the wonderful staff at Building Blocks. From the time I started the application process to having my beautiful son in my arms was only 6 months. I never felt overwhelmed with paperwork or “red tape” due to the support of Building Blocks. I could never have imagined such a smooth and enjoyable journey to being matched with my amazing baby boy. When I was matched with a family out of state and started working also with another agency, Denise was there to help at anytime. She is so fast to return texts, emails or phone calls. It is very comforting to have her support at any time. She would continuously check in with me during the 48 hr. waiting period and while the baby and I were waiting for the paperwork to clear. Not only that, but she and her staff are genuinely excited for their families, which makes for a very unique adoption experience. I will recommend them to anyone considering adoption. I only have Building Blocks Adoption to thank for exceeding my expectations by leaps and bounds, and for helping me through the most wonderful experience of my life. My entire family and life is forever richer because of the beautiful little boy they helped me adopt and I couldn’t be more appreciative for all they’ve done.”
“We have dreamed of becoming adoptive parents for a long time and thanks to Building Blocks Adoption Services that dream is now a reality. From the start, Building Blocks answered all of our questions and helped us through the adoption process from our homestudy to placement of our daughter. The BBAS staff supported us throughout our adoption journey. They promptly addressed all of our concerns and offered guidance as needed along the way. Everyone was friendly and made us feel at ease as they navigated us through the process. After completing our homestudy, we matched with a birth mom within eight months. We feel very fortunate that we found BBAS and very blessed to have our beautiful daughter. Without their help we would not have found the match that ultimately made our dreams come true and for that we are truly grateful.”
“We love Building Blocks! After the successful completion of an international adoption through BBAS, we decided to pursue a domestic adoption. We never even considered using another agency, because we knew that Building Blocks would provide us with support, communication and efficiency that could never be matched. And we were right! Our total wait, from the time we began our homestudy to when we brought our TWIN daughters home, was less than five months! And while we know that ours was a match made in heaven, the whole process proved to us once again what a wonderful agency Building Blocks is. From promptly filing our paperwork to keeping us updated, even multiple times a day, on potential matches and developments, to literally walking with us into the hospital the day we met our precious girls, the representatives of Building Blocks displayed a professionalism that we think is amazing. And best of all, we have become parents once again to two beautiful, healthy and perfect daughters. Our family has been greatly blessed by Building Blocks Adoption, and would (and have!) highly recommend them to anyone considering adoption!”
“From start to finish Building Blocks Adoption Services was with us through it all. We could not be any more pleased with the process of finding our son. We began our journey with Building Blocks in June by filling out an application, by November of that same year our home study was complete and authorized and 5 months later we were matched with our birth mother. Our son, Liam, was born in July and we were beside ourselves with nerves and joy, but Building Blocks Adoption in Ohio followed us through the process and offered answers and support trough it all. The people at Building Blocks know what it is to be searching for your family and they understand the emotional stress this places, they truly care and in doing so they helped us get through the stress of waiting and celebrated each step of the process. We could not imagine going through the process without our wonderful guides and architects of our adoption, they truly build families one adoption at a time.”
“With the assistance of Building Blocks we adopted our son. At all times during the adoption process, Denise and the Building Blocks staff were professional, courteous, understanding, available and helpful. Building Blocks staff always responded promptly to our e-mails and phone calls. Before traveling to bring our son home, Building Blocks staff provided us guidance with completing the necessary documents and preparing us for our meetings and what was expected of us. Building Blocks will forever be part of our family.”
“My husband and I are pleased to be able to write a few words about BBAS. After 25 years of marriage, we decided to become parents. We knew we wanted to adopt, but we did not know where to start. After researching on the internet, we settled on BBAS and began our journey to become parents. Throughout this exasperating, frustrating, exciting and thrilling time, Denise and her staff were there to help. Sometimes when we were confused, through a quick e-mail or phone call, Denise was there to explain and reassure us. As we worked through our mountain of paperwork, we felt so lucky that Denise was there to de-code the mysteries of adoption. Now we are a forever family of three through adoption!”
“Her name is Grace, we always knew that would be our daughter’s name. We just never knew how she could come into our lives. Then we met Denise and the BBAS family at one of their adoption seminars and by that evening we knew that Grace would come into our lives through the journey of adoption. Denise and her staff were always there for us throughout every step of the adoption process. They answered our phone calls and e-mails promptly and are a very kind, caring and knowledgeable group of people. Our daughter Grace is our angel, we are so pleased and blessed to have her in our family through adoption. We are forever grateful to BBAS.”
“I would recommend Building Blocks to anyone seeking a professional, courteous, responsive and efficient service. My new family is a source of wonder and amazement. I appreciated Denise and her staff assisting me during the process. They took questions and answered sympathetically. Building Blocks seemed to genuinely care about myself and these children. Thanks for everything.”<
“Our son has brought so much joy to our lives. Thank you Building Blocks for helping us in adopting our son!”
“As a single mom, BBAS not only did a wonderful job helping with the actual adoption process and paperwork, but they gave me the support I needed to bring my boys home.”
“We very comfortably chose BBAS as our agency after receiving all glowing reports from references we investigated and contacted. BBAS is a wonderfully supportive, professional and caring agency who continually demonstrate that their primary focus is the many waiting children in need. The support required for nervous parents was professional, caring and supportive. Thanks to BBAS we are now parents of two children and could not be happier”
“My husband and I adopted our twin boys through Building Blocks. We were placed with our boys in just under 10 months from the completion of the home study. Our social worker was friendly and made the home study process seem very smooth and much less chaotic than we had originally expected. Building Blocks uses an online system which allowed us to ask questions at all times of the day or night. When we received the news that our birthmother was in labor, we were easily able to get ahold of Building Blocks staff, both Denise and Courtney were blessings to ease our nerves. They showed sincere interest in helping my husband and I become parents.
I have been attempting to figure out how to write this review for weeks and months on end. We are so incredibly thankful for the Building Blocks staff. They provided us with guidance, support, and hope. How will we possibly ever thank a group of people enough for bringing our sons into our lives. Honestly, I think the best compliment we can give is that we plan to adopt again and will undoubtedly be using Building Blocks.”
