*Consumer Comment: Carol and Everlasting Adoptions Are Miracle Workers
The director of Everlasting Adoptions, Carol Shepherd, reached out to us quickly after we contacted them. She offered us support and assistance and was very helpful.
And then we paid $8,700 for their services.
It was a good long time before we heard anything from them again. After nearly nine thousand dollars, you'd think they could spend some time talking with us, right?
After over a year of little contact and absolutely no work on their part, we got serious about finding our own birthmother. In the end, we found our own birthmother without any assistance from EA, although they still got to keep the money we paid them up front.
If you are considering adoption, please please please do not pay for their services. Carol will sweet talk you into paying the fee, but they are not worth the expense. If not for that fee, our adoption would have only cost six thousand dollars. However, it ended up being nearly fifteen thousand in the end.
Companies like this charge exorbitant fees, and they will tell you that it is okay because the adoption tax credit will pay you back for your costs at tax time. That is an excuse to rob hopeful adoptive parents of their hard earned money. Don't fall for it.
