It's not what we have in our life, but who we have in our life that matters.

We would love to have you become part of the AAOL family, like Traci and Jim:
Our experience with AAOL has been nothing short of fantastic. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, sympathetic, empathetic, genuine, professional and always willing to help. You can tell by their actions that they truly enjoy what they do and they are great at it. The staff takes the time to get to know you and your family whereby at the end of your stay in Utah, you are a part of their family; the AAOL family. Their guidance when engaging with a birth family is wonderful and they are with you every step of the way. They are so proficient at what they do that your experience is second to none. We highly recommend AAOL and becoming a part of their family.

Traci and Jim in NJ

As a full-service adoption placement agency, A Act of Love helps birthparents and prospective adoptive parents through every step of the adoption process. Their understanding, caring staff is well educated and has personal adoption experiences.

 

Focused on placing children in loving environments and nurturing homes, they have been working to place birthparents with adoptive families for more than two decades. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, they rely primarily on donations and adoption fees. They do not accept state or federal funding. For more than 20 years, they have focused on adhering to the strongest ethnical and moral business practices. They have participated in thousands of successful adoptions and with a caring multi-ethnic staff they also have experience working with ethnic adoptions.

 

Using an outreach program throughout the United States, they work with birthparents in every state and abide by the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC), which ensures that children are well cared for despite their birthplace and residency states.

 

A Act of Love specializes in infant adoption placements and also features less than average wait times for adoptive parents. As a comprehensive, full-service agency, they offer home study services for adoptive families, including post-placement services. They also feature adoption orientation classes and parenting classes.

 

They specialize in offering several adoption programs, including those that focus on open, semi-open and closed adoption plans. With onsite legal services, they also work with adoption financial aid. As a professional agency, they encourage birthparents and adoptive parents alike to be cautious of companies that claim all birthing expenses are paid.

 

With their experienced team of professionals, they offer a specialized social work team, birth parent coordinators and experienced office staff members. Birthparents can easily browse adoption profiles online, learning more about prospective adoptive parents. Additionally, these profiles feature pictures and information directed towards birthparents.

 

They offer birthparents medical, legal and financial assistance, understanding that unexpected pregnancies can be a costly, life changing experience for birthparents. They also work with birthparents and adoptive parents to facilitate both open and closed adoptions, helping ensure that both parties create a plan that meets their desires and needs.

 

Birthparents may receive complimentary pregnancy counseling before, during and after adoption placement. They also ensure that birthparents have access to specialized counseling anytime of day or night, including weekdays and weekends. Some birthmothers decide to relocate to Salt Lake City, Utah, during the latter parts of their pregnancies. If needed, they can provide relocation support and housing, including coordination to and from doctor appointments.

 

Privacy is always of the utmost importance at A Act of Love, whether people choose open, semi-open or closed adoptions. Serving Utah since 1993, they are also subject to the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC), which means they work to facilitate adoptions in all states. As a reputable adoption agency, they have both positive and difficult adoption experiences. They will provide birthparents and adoptive parents with all types of references, allowing them to make their own personal adoption decisions. Their adoption experts are more than willing to discuss adoption in more detail and highly encourage interested parties to contact them directly with any questions.

If you are a birth mother call 1-800-835-6360 at any time.

The staff at A Act of Love are some of the most genuine, patient, kind, and loving people I know! When I first talked to them, I was met with such kindness and genuine warmth that I felt comfortable with considering adoption for my baby. Throughout the whole process, they were patient with me and never rushed me on making any decisions. They always took time to answer my questions, no matter how late at night it was, which is how I know they love what they do. They are truly dedicated to serving those who they come into contact with. While they are professionals, they made the experience very personal for me. I was treated like I was their family. A Act of Love Adoption Agency is simply the best!

We recently adopted a sweet little baby through A Act of Love Adoptions. From day one the agency was forward and honest about what the fees and other expenses would be. There were no surprises. They are professional and really do care. These people have big hearts! They understand how difficult the experience can be for an adoptive family and do their best to provide education and support. The Act of Love family has changed our lives. We are incredibly grateful for their help. We highly recommend them!

My husband and I adopted our first child through A Act of Love Adoptions almost a year and half ago. They helped us through the whole process step by step and were very personable. We had a wonderful experience and we have recommended Act of Love to our family and friends that have struggled with infertility and are seeking to adopt. We would work with them again! Thanks to the staff at Act of Love for our precious son!

We were referred to A Act of Love Adoptions by some friends of ours for the adoption of our infant daughter, They were a delight to work with, from the very first contact we made in starting our home study through the waiting for a match to placement. Very professional in helping us to connect with the birth mom in a meaningful way. Jill and Tarilee were always ready to answer any questions we had in the entire process. I recommend them to any person looking for a reputable agency.

I found Act of Love Adoptions to be an excellent organization. Because of Act of Love, I have a wonderful son who is doing beautifully. Act of Love made my dream of becoming a mother a reality. They walked me through every step of the adoption process – supporting and encouraging me along the way. The fee structure was transparent and I found the social workers and staff members to be responsive, caring, and knowledgeable. I adopted my son in Utah and the Act of Love staff were present at the hospital guiding me through the emotional steps of adoption. The staff were there for me and the birth mom – something that was very important to me. I would highly recommend Act of Love for your adoption journey.

We had a great experience with A Act of Love. They offered a lot of support. They were there for us even on weekends. The birth mom to our son was not about to find an adoptive couple that she wanted to place with so the agency looked for couples through other agencies. To mean that really expresses how they do want what is best for the birth mom.

We are so grateful to A Act of Love for our son. He is truly a blessing and though our journey to meeting him was not without difficulties, it was nothing compared to the joy he brings to our family and how he completes it. We are thankful to the caring staff at Act of Love who walked alongside us.

This was a very up and down experience that led us to close our file with the agency despite $10,000 being invested....we didn't want our file even on hold. My husband and I started off with this agency after two years of research. We inquired and asked questions and after reviews and discussion with the agency, we were convinced they were a great fit for our needs. We asked Carlene and Mr. Thomas if our modest budget of $25,000 was acceptable. We asked 3x before committing to the agency and submitting the required $9900 fee. However, not a few weeks later, we had a phone discussion stating that it was not enough and that situations can get up to $40,000. Again, this was after researching, doing a background check on the agency to make sure that nothing fishy was going on with their finances, and testimonials. We have email records stating that we were not ready to commit more money if it is not at the correct expectation. The agency said, that we should move forward and after facebook page updates on other families being placed, etc, we moved forward and paid the remaining money required. Then we were told that situations were way over our budget. We increased our budget and informed the agency, twice...it was still not enough. We informed the agency that we wanted to put our file on hold. While we could increase our budget more, we are not fools with our money. We refused to continue with a process that should be emotionally oriented, but instead is financially based, so it seems. If you are considering A Act of Love, I suggest you have at least $40,000 ready to invest in adoption and if you have less, do not do it. Otherwise, you will be mislead.
