Adoptive Couple

"My husband and I recently completed Woven Together’s entire course.  It is incredibly well done, polished, and informative.  It provides hope, encouragement and conviction to hopeful adoptive couples/families.  Woven Together goes above-and-beyond in providing logistical information to help navigate the adoption process, as well as ensuring that hopeful adoptive couples/families are TRULY prepared for the joys, challenges and unknowns of the adoption journey for the entire triad.  While the details of each individual adoption story cannot be entirely laid out, Woven Together has compiled real-life scenarios from real-life experiences to help share wisdom, insight, hope and preparedness for all possibilities.  Mallory and Leah both do an excellent job of creating a course out of genuine love for all members of the triad to ensure that everyone is treated with the utmost dignity, respect and love that they deserve.  Leah and Mallory share their own heartfelt stories and experiences, along with interviewing and allowing others to share their journeys and expertise, which provide hopeful adoptive couples/families with different viewpoints that address hard topics, special circumstances, and powerful stories.  Overall, Woven Together has truly “woven together” an all-encompassing course that helps to equip and empower hopeful adoptive couples/families so that they can come to the adoption table ready to love completely through a solid foundation based on wisdom, trust, sacrifice, grace and hope!"
