"We wouldn’t have the fabulous family we do without the guidance and support of By Your Side Adoption Consultants, we worked with Tara on both of our son’s adoptions! The level of guidance, encouragement and enthusiasm for adoption was beyond anything we ever hoped for. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the honesty, integrity and directness, it was exactly what we needed to be able to navigate what at times felt like an overwhelming and daunting process. Tara was thorough and efficient every step of the way, from explaining the basics of the adoption process, figuring out what circumstances we should consider, suggesting agencies to work with and most of all the ongoing evaluation of situations and guidance throughout the process. I would highly recommend consulting with Tara if adoption is an option you are considering." K.M.
"I am very grateful for Tara's guidance and friendship throughout our adoption journey. She held my hand every step of the way, and always looked out for my best interest. She is extremely organized and very knowledgeable about all the little logistics that can be overwhelming about the journey (i.e., putting a profile book, what program should I use to create it?). Tara finds solutions and looks out for you. We had an issue with our home study agency and we wanted to find a new one. Tara helped us find a new (and amazing) social worker." Erin
"This was our first adoption. Tara educated us on the mechanics of the adoption process, but perhaps more importantly, the aspects of adoption birth mother interactions. Our trust in Tara was well placed. She assisted with the adoption profile book and in doing so, allowed us to have reasonable, but hopeful, expectations. We recommend Tara highly and would gladly use her services again." Lynne & John
"Tara made our adoption experience a pleasant one. She is extremely knowledgeable about the adoption process and is willing to sit and answer any and all questions you may have. She walks you through each step of the process, offering support, information, and encouragement when needed. She gives her opinion, when asked, but operates in a truly judgement free manner-allowing you to make decisions based on what's best for your family. Due to our experience we would highly recommend Tara and her company for all of your adoption needs." Caitlin & Nick
"Tara was there for us every step of the way through our adoption process. She has been through this journey herself, so she understood all the emotions we were going through. She always had our best interest in mind and constantly worked to find opportunities for us. Tara helped us determine which agencies and attorneys would best fit our family and helped us assess the risk of various adoption situations we were presented.
Her extensive experience with adoption meant we were more educated on the process than we would have been if we attempted this on our own.
Just under 7 months from beginning the adoption process, we became parents to the perfect baby boy. We are so thankful we had Tara to help us
on the path to parenthood!" Amber & Andrew
"We wanted nothing more in this world than to start a family. After many infertility treatments and numerous surgeries, and lots of prayers, we decided to pursue adoption. We went out on a limb and hired a consultant to help us and that is when we met Tara. We were hesitant at first about the process, but she was a blessing in disguise through our adoption journey. She made our very emotional/nerve wrenching process easier and she was ALWAYS available to us. She would always offer advice and answered any questions we had. Tara continuously gave us her honest opinion and didn’t just tell us what we wanted to hear. It is because of her that we finally become parents to our beautiful baby boy. We continue to keep in touch with Tara because she became more than just a consultant. We highly recommend Tara to anyone who is considering pursuing adoption or have questions about whether is the best option for them." Jeff & Casey
