Our Approach

At Budding Family Tree we focus on supporting individuals through the OVERWHELMING process of adoption. We strive to provide emotional support, tips, perspectives and advice from others that “get it.” We have been there and done that! As adoptive parents ourselves, we realize you may have been through A LOT before getting to the point of wanting to adopt and we want to hold your hand through the process and beyond!  If you were on the infertility ride, this is yet another roller coaster you are boarding. Strap in and enjoy the ride! It may be scary but it eventually comes to a stop and you can just sit back enjoy the rest of your parenting journey!

Our Story

In addition to going through the adoption process and enduring many curves in the road, we lived through the process with many other couples!  We are rooted in the adoption community and stay in touch with current topics.  We want to share not only our experiences,  but share what we have learned from others.  We want to offer a safe place for you to ask questions and gain insights from families who have been there.  Looking back on our own journeys, we wish we would have had this resource and now it is our chance to give back.
