This page is full of videos of our adoptive families. These are all families that came to Hope For Families in search of a child to complete their family. They share their intimate stories of their family adoption in an effort to educate you and encourage you in your adoption journey!
A true testimony from Nicole, age 35, Okeechobee FL:
"Hello, my name is Nicole. I am going to tell you a story. A true story about strength, weaknesses, courage, opportunity and enormous gratification. I am 35 years old and have been through good times, bad times, and many tough times. At the age of 34, I was living in Okeechobee when I found out that I was pregnant. The father was in jail and I was alone with no money and no job. I went to the Okeechobee Pregnancy Center and spoke with great counselors. I knew I had to make a decision. I was considering adoption again but wasn't sure. That's when I got to speak to Lynn Brown.
My next visit there, I got to meet both Ken and Lynn. What a wonderful experience. They are truly two angels sent from heaven for the sole purpose of making people's lives better and providing HOPE. That is why their agency is called HOPE FOR FAMILIES.
I picked out wonderful adoptive parents. They have been married a while. They are financially secure, have lots of "things" - but they can't have children. These two wonderful people have been waiting for a child for three years. I could not even imagine!
I am sure that they were very excited when they received that call from Lynn saying that they were chosen by me and would be having a child soon.
Not long after they received that call did I get to talk to them. From that moment on I knew I had made the right choice. Their dreams of having a child were coming true and because all because of me and Hope for Families!
I shared this because I want other people to feel the satisfaction that I felt and still feel today by choosing adoption. It's a very unselfish and beautiful thing to do. I pray you make the right decision. I did.
