"Spence-Chapin helped me understand the broad world of adoption....They helped me understand [the] process and made sure I was the one with agency and power in every turn. There are many uncertainties in life, but choosing Spence-Chapin to help me with my adoption plan was not one of them....With all the knowledge, support, and care from Spence-Chapin, I was prepared to make life-changing choices knowing that they were with me every step of the way."
Linda L.
