We receive many letters from our adoptive parents. These
are just a sampling of the things our families have to say.
Of course we will gladly supply you with references and
detailed information should you decide to inquire further.
"My wife and I have been associated
with Child of the Heart for over a year and have been
repeatedly impressed with the efficiency, professionalism
and integrity of everyone associated with this agency. Most
importantly, the professionals at Child of the Heart keep
the needs of the children as the first priority. Child of
the Heart facilitated the adoption of our son from Russia
last summer. Our adoption experience was handled perfectly
by Child of the Heart. We have recommended this agency to
our friends and we are presently in the process of adopting
our second and third children through Child of the Heart. We
wholeheartedly support and recommend Child of the Heart
agency." M. M.
"I want to tell you how happy we are
and what a great job all the people did for us in Russia.
This is a life changing event and we are forever grateful to
you." E. V.
"We have adopted four children in four
different trips to Russia - always using Elena and her
"team". At the visa interviews in the U.S. Embassy
in Moscow and again on the flights home we have met many
adopting couples who have used other agencies and had trying
experiences. When you speak with these people and learn of
the trials they have been through, it is obvious how
professional, well prepared and caring everyone at Child of
the Heart is. Our home has been blessed with four beautiful
Russian children and our experiences with Child of the Heart
(both here and in Russia) have been wonderful."
"My husband and I traveled
to Russia to adopt a five year boy and a four year girl. Our
adoptions were arranged by Child of the Heart agency. The
paperwork was organized, the support in Russia was
remarkable and the personal attention Dr. Strehle provided
ensured a bright and positive future for two children.
Undoubtedly her Russian heritage serves as an invaluable
lifeline in the process. We thank God every day that Dr.
Strehle came into our lives. May she continue her fine work
and that of the facilitators and translators she employs in
"From the very beginning we felt
completely comfortable and confident in the agency. While in
Russia we always felt safe and in very good hands.
Everything went smoothly and we couldn't have dreamed of a
better adoption experience. We've recommended Child of the
Heart and plan to use the agency again soon when we adopt
our second child."
