I had called other agencies when I found out I was pregnant,  and didn’t  like all I was hearing. Connie and Sara made time for me and really made me feel like my voice mattered.  Even though I knew it was the best choice, it was a hard choice.  They made space for me and I knew I was really cared about.

Birth mother

I had worked with another agency in the past, but had some doubts when I decided to become a gestational carrier again.  A friend had recommended Going Adoption and Surrogacy, so I gave them a call.  Connie immediately made me feel at ease and was so open and warm. This has been an an amazing experience so far, and I'm feeling really great about the match
with the intended parents.  I highly recommend this agency to anyone considering surrogacy  as their way to build their family.

Gestational Carrier

We had been feeling lost in the system after applying to adopt from foster care, and having our phone calls either unanswered, or waiting long times for any inquiries we made on waiting children. When we signed on for the foster care navigator program, we immediately noticed the change in attention our family was getting from the other agencies.  We are happy to report we are visiting with the children we are matched with and can't wait for the day they move in for good.  Thank you so much Going Adoption!

When we set out to adopt, we didn’t know much about the process. Connie and Sara sat down with us in a zoom meeting and answered every single question that we had. They made us feel at home and confident that they would work with us and help us with our goal of building our family. They communicate with us often and never make us feel our questions are not relevant. We are still waiting for our miracle match, but we are so happy we decided to work with Going Adoption and Surrogacy.

To be honest I has originally chosen to work with a different agency, But I felt that I wasn’t being heard. One if my friends told me about Going Adoptions and I decided to give them a call. From that very first interaction, I knew they were different. They really heard me and met my needs. They helped match me with a family that was perfect! When my baby was born, they carefully walked me through the process, and I was able to meet the adoptive family and felt very supported. I feel like Sara really cared about me and spent time with me to make sure that this, the hardest time of my life went as smoothly as it could. I am happy that I chose to work with them and recommend them to anybody who is going through an adoption decision.


We were so frustrated by the child welfare foster system. We have the love, space, and patience to adopt a child from the foster care system! The agency would not even home study us because we didn’t want a teenager. We are open to most things and think a child around 10 would be a strong fit. As we looked around the state and the at all the Heart Galleries when we inquired on multiple children, but no one would call us back. Going Adoption and Surrogacy took our home study and created a marketing profile and then linked us up to programs with children for adoption around the US who responded back to them as our social worker. Soon we were looking and learning about children every week. We are currently matched with a child who fits our family, and we can’t wait to have her move into our home. I know we will be successful as Going Adoption is supporting us the entire way!

What I loved most about working with Going Adoptions and Surrogacy is that, both Connie and Sara are adoptive parents themselves and Sara is also an Adoptee. They were able to help us see all perspectives and support us when we made difficult decisions. Because they have lived this experience they understood our struggles, hopes and dreams.

Adoptive Mom

When I came to Going Adoptions, I wasn’t sure what I wanted. They were patient with me as they told me about all my options. One day we went out and explored services in case I didn’t choose to place my little boy. I felt supported, as they always answered the phone when I needed to talk and drove me to all my appointments if they could. I ended up being matched with a wonderful family, who is open to staying in touch with me forever. I know my son is healthy and happy and he knows who I am. I am still working on me.


I was treated with respect and without judgement. I felt like they accepted me into their family as they helped me. I knew that they cared about me and my child.
