At a very difficult time in our lives, Open Arms supported and encouraged us, and we were eventually blessed with our little girl. Thank you, Open Arms!

We have adopted 2 children now through Open Arms in the past 5 years. We are so thankful for their commitment to expectant mothers to give them unbiased counseling, support whether they place or parent, and then the time and effort in helping find an adoptive family if that is what the birth family chooses.
We have also been impressed with the extra love and attention they gave our 2 little ones who spent time in the NICU & CICU while they looked for a family to meet their special medical needs.
