We worked with A Angel Adoptions for our second adoption. We had an outstanding experience. Adoption is a very challenging process, and Covid definitely added to that stress, so it was very important to us that we work with the best professionals. We felt confident that Suzanne and her staff were running one of (if not the) best private agencies in Alabama. Their work is top notch. The team is small and close knit, and each of them have so much experience working in adoption. Even after completing one adoption through a different agency in 2017, we learned and grew a lot during our time working with them. We felt very well taken care of and supported during the process. We are so grateful to have our daughter because of them.

I already had 2 kids when I found out I was pregnant again. I don’t believe in abortion. I knew there were people out there who couldn’t have kids. The father of my baby said this wasn’t his baby. My son has great parents now and we text a lot.

I was in high school when I found out I was pregnant. I told my mom and nobody else. I hid the pregnancy and picked out the parents for my baby girl. They had a daughter already so they are now sisters and close in age. Me and my mom have stayed in touch and we have an open adoption. I am thankful for Miss Suzanne and her adoption agency.

Because I was a scared 20-year-old girl, I knew I wasn’t prepared to be a mom – I knew his life deserved a chance. I knew there were others more prepared than me. Our circle of love just grew – like a blended family. I would recommend Suzanne and her agency. The Lord really did hear my prayers. I remembered being so scared. Suzanne made it so easy. I knew what to expect and Suzanne was there for me to talk to. I felt so lonely.

A angel adoption was an answer to prayer, well many prayers. After two failed matches with other agencies, we had lost a significant amount of money. We love the heart of A Angel, the professionalism, but also the relationship we built along the way. Knowing our money was not at risk until our baby was home safely in our arms gave us tremendous peace in the chaos and confusion we had been through. They walked us through every step of the way, helped us build a relationship with our birthmom, and even grieved along side us a year later when our babies mom had passed away. They have gone above and beyond to love our family and our daughter well. We have and will continue to recommend them to prospective adoptive families! Our family is complete because of them, and we sure are grateful!

I placed my baby for adoption with A Angel Adoptions because I knew I wasn’t prepared to be a mom at that time. I also knew this baby deserved a chance in life with parents who were prepared to have a baby. I would recommend Suzanne and her agency to anyone thinking about placing their baby for adoption. I would also play it the same way if I had to do it again and really feel like the Lord heard my prayers. I remember being so scared and lonely and felt like Suzanne was always there for me to talk to – day or night. She helped me know what to expect at the hospital and through the years. She continues to be a huge support system to me.

I need to send you another thank you to express how great you and your agency are. We have a successful placement of another son, so we are very happy this worked out as we love him dearly and he is meant to be ours:-) Over the years we have worked with many different placing agencies and we have not found any that come even close to offer the professionalism, attention to detail, care and compassion for all members of the adoption triad as A Angel Adoptions has done for us. We knew we wouldn't be taken as well care of as you have done for us with our adoption of our son, but this recent experience has really exemplified how exceptional you are. We were missing you every step of the way. Thank you again for how hard you worked for us; we really cannot thank you enough. Please don't change a thing; babies, birth families and adoptive families really need you. You are truly Angels in the adoption profession.

When we were asked to describe what parenting feels like, we described it as “butterflies and rainbows” and even when our son is fussy, we feel very blessed and grateful to be his parents. We describe our son as the “greatest joy in our lives.”

highly recommend A Angel Adoptions. We adopted our youngest daughter through them in 2019. They were always upfront/transparent with costs, time frames, and sharing their wonderful wisdom/perspective (from doing this so long). They walked our birth mom and us step by step through the whole process. Suzanne is very comforting, encouraging and quick to get a hold of any time. She and her teammate, Emily, visited the hospital every day from right after the delivery to discharge. They became dear friends through the whole process. Don’t take my word for it. All you have to do is call Suzanne and you’ll know from her patient, kind voice and the time she takes to answer all your questions that she is totally dedicated to what she does and the women and men she helps. Our adopted daughter is our third and most likely our last kiddo, but if we wanted to adopt again, I would not hesitate to use A Angel again!

How do you thank someone for helping to complete your family? Your support as we went through our adoption process was so wonderful. You pulled us up when we were down and literally helped us cope with everything. Our son brings such joy to our whole family. He is so happy and has the most beautiful smile. He is worth all we went through and makes this Christmas even more special. Thank you so much for all that you did to bring him to us. We cannot imagine our lives without our precious angel

I hope we've said this before, but I'd like to say "thanks" again for helping us add this angel to our family. Along with enjoying parenthood the past year, I've been blessed to meet other adoptive parents and hear their stories. And although each one ends with a wonderful new son or daughter, I have to say that by far, you gave us the best experience over all others. You knew the ins and outs of adoption very well, were candid with us about our options and what to expect, and you were available when we needed you. And most important (to me, anyway) was the way you managed our wait time.

We are so grateful for the work A Angel Adoptions does to serve moms, kids, and families! We worked with A Angel Adoptions to adopt our beautiful baby daughter. Suzanne and Emily were wonderful to work with throughout the process. All communication was clear and timely. They connected us to a terrific attorney to support all the legal components. All financial items were clear and accurate. Most importantly, we felt like Suzanne and Emily truly cared about us and our adoption dream. They were positive, encouraging, and hopeful throughout the process. Our specific adoption story involved a stork drop adoption with a very short timeframe between match and placement, and Suzanne and Emily walked with us with grace during that whirlwind of a week! Kate Kruse, who cared for our daughter for the week before we took placement, is an angel in disguise and we are grateful to her and her family for loving our daughter so well during that week. We would highly recommend A Angel Adoptions to other families considering adoption. We thank God for Suzanne and the whole A Angel Adoptions team!

I am so grateful to have worked with A Angel in adopting my beautiful baby, and, without hesitation, I would recommend A Angel for other families considering adoption! Suzanne, Susan and Emily are truly a blessing! When I initially met with Suzanne, I knew practically nothing about the adoption process (and had more questions than answers about so many things). Suzanne patiently answered each of my questions (and I had more than an hour's worth of those – LOL) and assured me that she would be with me every step of the way – and she did just that! If I could not reach Suzanne or just had a question along the way, I could reach Emily, who was always willing and able to help me. Susan, my social worker, was so incredibly encouraging, helpful and warm on each call and during each visit. Honestly, I was sad when those visits ended. But, I will say what impressed me most was the care, compassion and respect that they showed to the birth mother. These ladies have truly found their calling.

Suzanne and Emily are absolute angels! There was never a time that we felt unprepared or unable to ask questions.

We are so appreciative of them!

This was our first time adopting. After exploring other agencies and adoption options, Angel Adoptions was the only choice. When we started this process, I called Angel Adoptions. Suzanne spent an hour with me going over the process of adoption and helped me understand why some of her birth mothers choose the path of adoption and the risks involved. You could hear the care in her voice and the empathy she has for both the adoptive families and the birth parents. After that conversation, she would not take my application! I was dissapointed. To my dismay, it was all for a purpose! Suzanne does not take millions of applications and keep families waiting and spending money. She keeps a select number of families so not to overwelm and confuse the birth mother and also to provide intimate support to the adoptive families. The birth mother has the support she needs and would be comforted to know that Suzanne just doesn't choose any family to represent. She did a very thorough examination of us. In my opinion, her adoption agency is the only choice in Alabama. In addition, she does not require thousands of dollars up front like most agencies. The fees are paid after you have been placed with a child. She also did not require that I use her agency for the home study. I used Rebecca Connor, and independant social worker who was also wonderful. After my home study was approved, I waited roughly 7 months before calling Suzanne again. Roe vs. Wade had been reversed and I thought maybe she would accept our application. Well, after being with Angel Adoptions only 2-3 months, My Angel baby arrived in August of 2022. Little did I know, we were waiting on her to get here! We are thrilled and blessed beyond measure that her birth mother choose us to raise her baby. Our baby girl was everything we had prayed for!! The remainder of the process was smooth and I wouldn't change anything for the world. Suzanne and Emily were fantasic and if you are considering adoption, whether as a birth mother or an adoptive family I wouldn't recommend any other than Angel Adoptions!! with love, the Grices 🙂

From the moment we started working with A Angel Adoptions, we knew there was something different about them. We could tell right away that to Suzanne and A Angel, this was more than a business, this was about finding the perfect, forever home for someone else’s most treasured gift. After being matched, Suzanne and Emily walked us through every single step. There was never a moment we felt out of the loop. Many times Suzanne would call just to check in and talk about how excited we all were for our sweet baby that was on the way. When we were told that no money would exchange hands until the birth mother signed over her rights, we were shocked. This was not what we were accustomed to seeing from other agencies. This solidified again that to Suzanne, Emily and A Angel Adoptions, the business side of things was not the priority, it was finding a loving home for a precious baby. Still to this day, 19 months later, we can reach out with any questions and we know that we will get an email or a phone call in response. We are honored to recommend A Angel Adoptions, and we are blessed to call them friends. They changed our lives, and we are so thankful they are a part of our adoption story.

Cannot give Suzanne and Emily high enough praise!! After going through a heartbreaking failed placement with a different agency, we found A Angel Adoptions while doing some online research and made the decision to move on from our first agency. Even though we live 2 hours away from their Helena office, we felt Suzanne was incredibly knowledgeable and would take care of our family (as well as the birth mother) through this process! From there, everything went so smoothly. Suzanne and her staff were quick to answer questions and were always clear communicators. We were fortunate with a quick placement after switching agencies, and Suzanne even helped us link up with a family lawyer for the next steps. Our beautiful daughter just celebrated her first birthday recently! Adoption is never an easy journey, and we had a very negative experience with our previous agency to the point we were close to giving up on our dream of growing our family. A Angel Adoptions restored our faith in this process, and we pray they can grow your family as well!

Thank you A Angel Adoptions for helping us to complete our family!

We adopted a beautiful baby boy from A Angel and it was a whirlwind of an experience, but I wouldn't have changed a single thing. We heard about A Angel through a friend and were initially interested because of their lack of upfront costs, which is rare (at least where we live). We submitted all of the required materials in April 2018 and just a few months later, got the call that would change our lives forever. We are so grateful for our son's birth family, Suzanne and Emily, as well as Kate, who took care of our son for a few days while we hurried to get our paperwork together and booked our travel to AL. Kate was incredibly kind and we continue to stay in touch with her to this day.

We have a successful placement of another son, so we are very happy this worked out as we love him dearly and he is meant to be ours:-) Over the years we have worked with many different placing agencies and we have not found any that come even close to offer the professionalism, attention to detail, care and compassion for all members of the adoption triad as A Angel Adoptions has done for us. We knew we wouldn't be taken as well care of as you have done for us with our adoption of our son, but this recent experience has really exemplified how exceptional you are. We were missing you every step of the way. Thank you again for how hard you worked for us; we really cannot thank you enough. Please don't change a thing; babies, birth families and adoptive families really need you. You are truly Angels in the adoption profession.

When we were asked to describe what parenting feels like, we described it as “butterflies and rainbows” and even when our son is fussy, we feel very blessed and grateful to be his parents. We describe our son as the “greatest joy in our lives.”

After two failed matches with another agency, we were feeling very defeated in our adoption journey and had lost a substantial amount of money. Then we met Suzanne and her team at A Angel! Wow! What a sweet answer to prayer! A Angel is unlike any other agency we’ve come across. Their service to both adoptive parents and birth moms is unparalleled. Suzanne brings a ton of experience and knowledge to this process. She is kind and compassionate, and was completely upfront and transparent about cost and expectations. She and Emily were available to us always, answered question after question, and supported us every step of the way. We adopted during COVID, which created some major challenges, but that didn’t stop them from giving us their full support. They loved and advocated for our birth mother so well throughout the process, which made us feel confident and assured in the placement. We are forever grateful to Suzanne, Emily and Kate for all their hard work and support in bringing our baby home. These three are true angels in the adoption industry!!

We have nothing but stellar things to say about Suzanne and A Angel Adoptions. We talked to several agencies before deciding to work with A Angel, and after our initial call, we knew we would use them for our adoption. Just our first call was almost 2 hours, and Suzanne took the time to answer every question we had thoroughly, honestly, and transparently. Even though A Angel is a smaller agency, they gave us a real confidence in the process. They were great at communicating throughout, and are great at educating you about adoption, both the good and the hard so you’re adequately prepared. Susan and Emily were amazing to work with, as well. They made what could be a stressful process enjoyable, and we felt like we gained 3 new friends along the way. Suzanne and Susan are amazing at caring for birthmoms, constantly checking in and offering counseling, even if that means traveling on the weekend. We’re so grateful for each of them and their role in our adoption story! We couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.

“I placed my baby for adoption with A Angel Adoptions because I knew I wasn’t prepared to be a mom at that time.  I also knew this baby deserved a chance in life with parents who were prepared to have a baby.  I would recommend Suzanne and her agency to anyone thinking about placing their baby for adoption.  I would also play it the same way if I had to do it again and really feel like the Lord heard my prayers.  I remember being so scared and lonely and felt like Suzanne was always there for me to talk to – day or night.  She helped me know what to expect at the hospital and through the years.  She continues to be a huge support system to me.”
– Birth Mother

“Thank you for caring about me and my son.  I’m so thankful for you, your workers, and your agency, A Angel Adoptions.  I’m also especially thankful for the adoptive parents of my son.  I would work with you and your agency again with a drop of a hat!” 
– Birth Mother

“Thank you so much! We have our dream. We are a family. God has blessed us so much by bringing our baby into our lives. God has many angels here on earth. My husband and I want you to know you are an angel to us. God bless you!”
E. and S. (adoptive parents)

“Thank you for all you’ve done to help complete our dream of having another child. We are so in love with our little girl! We have had such a great experience with her birth mother and her family. It was truly a match made in Heaven! We couldn’t have asked for things to go better!” 
R. and T. (adoptive parents)

“My husband and I are really enjoying maintaining our open relationship with our birth mother. Our baby is doing great. He will be 10 weeks old tomorrow. He is a very good baby and has brought so much joy and happiness to our family. We love him so much and are so thrilled to be his Mommy and Daddy. He has truly changed our lives in such an awesome way. Thanks so much for your part in helping my husband and I build our family through the adoption of this precious baby boy.” 
W. and A. (adoptive parents)

“I hope we’ve said this before, but I’d like to say “thanks” again for helping us add this angel to our family. Along with enjoying parenthood the past year, I’ve been blessed to meet other adoptive parents and hear their stories. And although each one ends with a wonderful new son or daughter, I have to say that by far, you gave us the best experience over all others. You knew the ins and outs of adoption very well, were candid with us about our options and what to expect, and you were available when we needed you. And most important (to me, anyway) was the way you managed our wait time.” 
S. and L. (adoptive parents)

“The blessings just keep coming don’t they?!? My husband and I feel like the two luckiest people in the world. Your guidance, persistence, and careful attention to each detail has made our experience an absolute joy. Our son is everything we wanted and so much more. He is the final piece to our wonderful family.” 
P. and M. (adoptive parents)

“Today is my first Mother’s Day to celebrate as a mother, and I couldn’t be happier! I am very touched by the “specialness” this day brings and the privilege it is to be a mother. Thank you again for all you did to help us realize our long awaited dream. Our daughter is a true joy and we love her so.” 
D. and R. (adoptive parents)

“How do you thank someone for helping to complete your family? Your support as we went through our adoption process was so wonderful. You pulled us up when we were down and literally helped us cope with everything. Our son brings such joy to our whole family. He is so happy and has the most beautiful smile. He is worth all we went through and makes this Christmas even more special. Thank you so much for all that you did to bring him to us. We cannot imagine our lives without our precious angel”
