Our Parents' Adoption Stories
What a better to learn about the adoption process than to read the adoption stories of real adoptive parents. These are real stories by real Saint Mary’s Parents whose perseverance to complete their dreams of adopting has resulted in our ability to share their adoption stories with you, our future adoptive parents. We hope and pray that these stories will inspire you to pursue international adoption.
Some of these inspirational stories were written by our agency, or more accurately posted by our agency but written by our adoptive parents. Others were written by third parties such as Rainbowkids.com and/or Precious.org about our St. Mary’s parents and their adoption journeys.
To God be the glory for every child adopted! Enjoy!

We wanted to make sure that this agency was reliable and well-regarded in Poland, so we called the Polish adoption authorities, who confirmed that St. Mary’s is well known as an American placing agency in Poland. There are other adoption agencies that work with Poland, but we quickly realized that St. Mary’s was the best choice because of the fact that they were always available to answer our questions.read more
We are truly spent and overwhelmed by all these new things and can honestly say we relate to every mom or dad awake in the middle of the night caring for a newborn or worrying about a family problem.
