Testimonials

  • "Thank you SO much for all of your help! I personally made many calls to MotherToBaby Arizona as we were navigating through the adoption process for 2.5 years. Each time we were presented with a situation and a birth mother, I would always call Dee Quinn first to discuss her medical history & current medication, etc. Dee patiently listened & answered all of my questions regarding each expectant birth mother. She served as a sounding board & played a very important part of our adoption process. We are very grateful to have had an expert’s insight into each situation & whether or not the particular situation was a good fit for our family. We felt much more comfortable with the advice of a professional when we were not sure where else to turn. I highly recommend that people take advantage & use this great service. I am happy to report that after 2.5 years, Dee helped us decide to adopt our son. We will happily refer anyone with questions regarding medications & other exposures during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Thank you Dee & MotherToBaby!" - Christy from Arizona
