Dear AGC Family,

We just wanted to drop a line to tell you that we were reflecting on our journey with your agency and all your wonderful staff as we celebrate one year with our beautiful girl. Without your agency, we would not have this amazing child as our daughter. As I’ve said before, you made our lives.

From the first time we called and met with you, we knew we were at the right place. Our journey had been long up to that point and we wanted to be parents so desperately. Though we had some bumps in the road along the way, we truly felt so supported by everyone who works there. Always willing to help, talk, whatever was necessary. We know last year, after our placement, you had a bunch of placements that interrupted your holidays. We know you selflessly worked to make sure everything worked out for everyone, sacrificing your own time with family and friends. We know those other December families also appreciate you so much.

Our daughter is doing great. She is walking, babbling, saying words, eating great, and we love to see the “light bulb” go off when she is learning. She is always learning! We are amazed by her. We pray for her birthmother and birthfather all the time and hope one day to be able to have them meet. We will let her birthmother steer this journey though. In the meantime, we hope she is happy seeing photos and videos and knowing that this beautiful little girl is thriving and flourishing.

We owe this connection all to you all and the good work you do. Having been in a different agency, we know how well AGC communicates with adoptive families. Each one of you have truly been called to this role and it is a gift to the families you help create.

Many blessings on each of you.
