My wife Lisa and I wholeheartedly recommend Open Arms Adoptions to anyone interested in adopting a child. Jackie knows her stuff, works very hard, and really cares about everyone involved in the process. Choosing Open Arms as our agency was one of the best decisions we've ever made.

My wife and I have adopted twice through Open Arms. They have been great! Very responsive to all of our questions, up front about the process, risks and benefits of adoption, and were half the cost of other local agencies we looked into. They have become a second family to us and we would recommend them to anyone looking into adoption. Jackie and her team are knowledgeable, heartfelt, and have only your best interests in mind. Best of the best! 
Eric & Becky
Throughout our process of certifying with and adopting through Open Arms, I have been blown away by the level of compassion, competency, and optimism that we’ve encountered. (The team) has given us warm support as they’ve deftly shepherded us through this intricate, and at times confusing, process with an abundance of professionalism and grace. I have the utmost respect for their efforts and care, and would strongly recommend them to anyone considering to walking down the beautiful path of adopting a child.
Benjamin & Elizabeth
Thank you for such an exceptional experience this (training) weekend. In full transparency, we came in with biases since we have started the process in 2 different states and the experience was less than desired. You and your staff led a top notch event and we both came away with many questions answered… We both entered the process concerned that we would be “judged” during the process and we felt quite the opposite… We are so thankful we are working with your agency.
