Heart and Soul
My husband and I had the opportunity to work with Geri, Founding Partner of Adoptions by Heart, through the adoption of our first child. More than anyone I have ever encountered, Geri passionately puts her heart and soul into her work. Geri recognized the strength, emotion, and love women were experiencing as they considered the potential placement of a child. She was so responsive to all people she worked with, and it was clear that it wasn’t just a job to her….we were her families.
In our time working with Geri, we observed how dedicated she was in counseling women with untimely pregnancies. She devoted any length of time necessary to help each woman determine the best course of action, recognizing that many women would choose to parent. Once we submitted our profile book and became a “waiting family”, I found it so reassuring to know potential birthmothers were being counseled by someone as experienced and dedicated as Geri. Geri had an understanding of each of these women and where they were emotionally with the potential placement of a child. Only when Geri was confident a birthmother was ready to proceed with an adoption plan would she allow her to review the profile books of waiting families. By doing so, she protected all parties in the adoption triad.
Adoptions by Heart will combine both the similar philosophies toward adoption, and the years of experience of its co-founders, Geri and Jeanne. By creating an atmosphere where women with untimely pregnancies are treated with compassion and respect, and viewed as individuals instead of subjects to provide for the next adoption placement, the agency will support all members of the adoption triad. In addition, by encouraging open adoption, the agency will lay the foundation for birthparents and adoptive families to work together in the best interests of the adoptees.
