My Adoption Agencies announces their latest website improvement – the ability to review and rate different adoption agencies. This also allows the public to share their personal experiences in a safe, anonymous manner.
My Adoption Agencies understands the lifelong commitment behind adopting a child and honors both birth parents and adoptive parents. When a birth parent makes the decision to give her child up for adoption, she wants to ensure the birth mom is working with a strong, reputable adoption agency that will help place her child in a loving, secure family.
Additionally, adoptive parents generally endure vast expenses when adopting a child, if not years on a lengthy waiting list. My Adoption Agencies strives to streamline this process by allowing adoptive parents to rate their experiences with different adoption agencies.
The review system is based on a one to five star rating system – with one being poor and five being excellent. People can contribute detailed, written reviews and personal experiences (although pseudonyms are highly recommended to maintain anonymity) for each adoption agency.
My Adoption Agency is a single source website that lists more than 800 U.S. adoption agencies, including several international adoption agencies. This makes their rating system not only helpful for prospective adoptive parents, but an advantageous adoption research vessel.
Sharing experiences not only contributes to helping adoption agencies improve their services, providing them with detailed feedback, but also allows birth parents and adoptive parents to voice their experiences. This enables them to “give back” to the adoption community and perhaps point prospective adoptive parents down a path that will prove prosperous.
Consumer and/or client’s personal reviews are proven to be more trusted than company websites and greatly influence the consumer’s decision to pursue a working relationship with an organization. In fact, between 60- to 70-percent of people rely and trust online reviews. With the advent of the Internet, traditional word of mouth reviews are rapidly becoming a thing of the past, especially with adoption being a private, personal decision.
Online reviews are proven to vitally influence prospective clientele and their decisions. When prospective adoptive parents read reviews written by other adoptive parents who have undergone similar experiences, a bond is formed, thus providing a sense of security. It is that commonality that is so important, especially when prospective adoptive parents are facing life-changing decisions.
People-skills and communication are crucial when working with expectant birth mothers, prospective adoptive parents and placing children in healthy, stimulating environments. The feedback provided by birth mothers, prospective adoptive parents and adoptive parents is essential in helping agencies determine where they need to improve their skills and in what ways their organization is succeeding in the adoption community. In fact, agencies should consider this feedback to be extremely constructive to their organizations – allowing issues to be brought to supervisors’ attentions that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. This also provides birth mothers and prospective adoptive parents with an excellent resource that is written by people who have gone through the adoption experience firsthand.
Ultimately, the most important goal for agencies, birth mothers, prospective adoptive parents and adoptive parents is raising a happy, healthy and thriving child.
