Second, because every child deserves unconditional love and a place to call their own; lastly, our priority is meeting the needs of orphaned children along with the needs of your family.
Amongst many other good reasons you may consider our agency as your primary Adoption Agency, our staff altogether shows an outstanding example.
The Executive Director of Adoption Avenues and the International Program Director, are of Eastern European descent; They were born in Sibiu, Romania, lived and worked there for 35 years. They are both well rounded Physicians and they have volunteered many hours working in orphanages in Romania. They established a care center in their private family home for orphan babies, which were abandoned in the hospital after birth. Dr. Baila and his wife, have an overall understanding of all medical diagnoses, and all other issues that orphan children face, in the countries that Adoption Avenues works in.
After coming to the U.S. in 1993, the Baila family faced the reality of keeping up with the high standards of the American education system, and decided to continue their medical study. The Executive Director, Nicole Baila has a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology, and the International Program Director, Radu Baila, took the American Medical Licensing Examination. Adoptive parents understand that the Eastern European medical terminology is vastly different from the American Medical Terminology; same with the Psychological Evaluation of the child. This is where the Baila family’s extensive Medical and Psychological knowledge comes in hand and another important reason why Adoption Avenues is a great choice on the adoption journey. Adoption Avenues is professionally well equipped to handle medical and psychological issues, in an integrated manner.
The social workers are also highly specialized in international adoptions; they have Master degrees in social studies, and are well acquainted with International Adoptions and Intercountry Relations. Because of the many years spent in Eastern Europe, Africa and South America, the team at Adoption Avenues is able to offer a wealth of information about any and all the countries they currently work in. The facilitators the agency works with in these countries are well educated, well trained, ethical professionals. They are knowledgeable about international adoption, reliable and dependable. The team altogether has the expertise, the cultural familiarity, the training and a wealth of knowledge that sets Adoption Avenues apart from any other adoption agency. It is often a harsh reality that families face, when traveling abroad and realizing the cultural, religious and political rules and regulations that are so different than the U.S.; however, the team at Adoption Avenues Agency is more than willing to prepare each family for their trips abroad. Because of the heritage and experience the Baila family has, it is a pleasure help adoptive parents and give them guidance on how they need to adjust to that country for the time they will spend there, in order to assure a smooth, safe and successful adoption experience.
“ We care for orphans not because we are rescuers, but because we are the rescued ” David Platt.
David Platt says it best and it is a quote Adoption Avenues holds very dear. The goal here is not in obtaining financial freedom, placing a fee or becoming the rescue of someone’s life, because the reality is, these children rescue us. With the love and care our adoptive families show to these children, we are fulfilled and overjoyed, that love has no fee.
