WHAT OUR
CLIENT SAY
“I had the good fortune of meeting Steve Sunday in 1993. I was nineteen and faced with an unplanned pregnancy. This was a very tough time for me and for my family but with his support, we made the best of a difficult situation. At the time Steve worked with LDS Family services as my counselor. I ultimately decided to place my daughter for adoption. His knowledge and compassion during this process and afterward were unmatched. I am forever grateful to him for the help he gave to me and my family. Steve and I reconnected years later while he was still with LDS Family Services but in Utah out of the main headquarters. At this time he was heading up many of the wonderful programs LDSFS had for adoption. He encouraged me to get involved with some of the local programs we had where I lived. It was wonderful advice and put me on a road to advocacy work. Steve influences so many people for good in particular, within the adoption world. I am thrilled to hear that he has started both an adoption agency and advocacy group. I know he has built a great team and combined with his experience they will bless the lives of so many through the miracles and blessings of adoption.”

“From the moment I stepped into Shannon Lyon‘s office, she made me feel comfortable, safe, and understood. As a young woman in that situation, I was terrified and I didn’t want to be judged by anyone because I was already judging myself. Shannon made me feel loved and she made me feel like I wasn’t alone. When things were particularly difficult, Shannon was there for me whether it was in the middle of the day or the middle of the night. She talked to me while she cooked dinner, while she had a screaming baby in the background and many more times when she clearly had what I viewed as more important things to do. She made sure that I knew everything was going to be okay and she always encouraged me to lean on the Lord. Shannon was one of my biggest supporters and I honestly couldn’t have done what I did without her. She took my family and I step by step through the adoption process. She helped me plan for my future. She made sure I was okay financially and she talked to me daily after the adoption occurred. I look up to Shannon so much. She is such a wonderful, loving, amazing woman. She is the kind of woman I can only hope to be someday. I will always remember what she did for me and my beautiful baby boy. She saved both of our lives, and she helped me give him a truly amazing family which is what that sweet boy deserved. I am so grateful for her and all the time and effort she put into providing me and my child with the best care and support possible. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in my situation or even those looking for guidance of any kind. Shannon is a wonderful person and she is amazing at what she does. I can’t thank her enough for all she did for me and my family.”

ANSWERS TO
COMMON QUESTIONS

If I make an appointment, will that commit me to an adoption plan?

No. We will answer your questions and discuss your options. We won’t move forward with anything until you decide what you want to do and are ready.

Are there any costs to me as a birth mother?

No, there are no costs to you as a birthmother.

Can I meet with the people that adopt my baby?

You get to choose who you place your baby with. You will have the opportunity to meet with the adoptive couple if you choose to. If you choose open adoption you and the adoptive couple will be able to decide on the level of openness you want.

Will my baby grow up hating me?

Adopted children grow up knowing they are doubly loved – by their biological and adoptive parents. This love is demonstrated by the sacrifices made by each parent in their lives. Adoptive parents are eager to share with their children your legacy of love, courage, and selflessness in choosing adoption.
