“I am SO glad we worked with Connie on our home study. I contacted her and she responded within the hour. Due to the lengthy process of adoption, we were very pleased with how fast she got back to us and how organized and timely she worked with us. She promised we would have the entire home study process wrapped up within five weeks – and sure enough – it all was completed in that time period. Connie specifically counselled us in the areas of marriage and parenting, in preparation for our upcoming adoption. She helped us in building an even stronger foundation in our marriage and affirmed us along the way as parents-to-be. I highly recommend Connie and the entire experience was wonderful.” – T
