"My husband and I went through adoption advocates as we were going through the process of a private adoption. From the very first phone call with Angela We knew We were working with the best. With us not knowing what needed to be done and when things needed to happened Angela was there with open arms to show us the way.
Angela is such a compassionate person. She's not just a social worker going to work everyday. She is there for you helping to make sure your entire process goes as smoothly as possible. When Angela came to our home she even made sure our dog Jackson was comfortable and brought him treats.
Angela and Adoption Advocates made our whole process so much easier and helped us understand what we needed to do. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a home study to prepare for adoption or foster care you will be in great hands."

"Between home studies, background checks and court dates, adoption can be very stressful. Thankfully, our attorney recommended Angela Paoli as our social worker.
Angela took a process that could easily have felt adversarial and made it as simple and friendly as possible. Her laid-back personality made it easy to open up and feel comfortable answering all the deep personal questions that are a necessity during a home study. She was even supportive of my intentions to pursue adoptive breastfeeding!
Angela has also been there for us post-finalization as I navigate the turbulent emotional waters of kinship adoption, and my cousin and I strive to find new normal for her first child whom she is parenting and the beautiful son she gave me.
Thanks again for your help with our journey! This is, hands down, the best thing I've ever done and we couldn't have done it without you!"
We can't ever thank you enough for all of your help getting our son to us. So. thank you! You not only did a lot of work for us but were a friendly support when we needed it. Thank you so much."
Your knowledge, kindness, respect and ongoing support were invaluable to us through the process of adopting and parenting our amazing daughter."
