Our clients are from all walks of life but have a common thread, that is the desire to start, or expand their family by adopting a child. Here they share their stories of what brought them to A Step Ahead Adoption and how we helped them “every step of the way.”

A Step Ahead has always been so wonderful to our adoptive families and they are truly there to hold their hand and provide them with in depth adoption education to meet their individual needs. I know when I refer a client to A Step Ahead, they are in good hands and have an advocate as they move through their adoption process.

Founder and Director Adoption & Beyond, Inc.

For the past 15 years, I have recommended A Step Ahead to our North Carolina adoption homestudy families. Each of these families brought a unique history and set of expectations to their adoption process. They found their consultants to be knowledgeable and responsive, and they always appreciated the wisdom and encouragement offered by Diane Hogan. In every single case, the adoptive family has been thrilled with their ASA experience.
As an adoption professional, I have had many opportunities to witness Diane’s strong ethical values. She is highly intelligent, organized, and works hard for each of her families. Families who work with ASA know they will receive honest, “full-disclosure” information about any adoption situation, as well as advice based on years of adoption experience.
