“Recently, the people at MomAtLast contacted us and asked if we could review their new iPhone app. We took a look, and this app is amazing! It helps families stay organized through the entire process, and cuts down on some of that paper you have to keep track of in your Adoption Binder. We highly recommend taking a look at The Adoption App. We are also working on setting up a webinar with Sharon Simons from MomAtLast” ~ Resources4Adoption.com
“It has been given the thumbs up by many adoption agencies who like its organizational abilities and the fact that it cuts out some of the paperwork that you have to keep track of. TheAdoptionApp is a very helpful app with lots of information for those thinking of adoption or foster care from home or abroad.” ~ FeedMyApp Review
“It’s one part “info” and one part “hand-holding through the steps.” As in, it would have answered about 3,892 of the 3,896 questions we emailed our agency during the paperwork process. This is exactly what you want (and what Ryan created in numerous spreadsheets) when going through the mountains of paperwork with an adoption. It’s what we all want our agencies to provide, but they typically don’t. There are example forms (wanna know what an immigration form looks like? Do ya? Do ya? I betcha do), descriptions of what “financial documentation” really means, a break down of the home study process, and a way to check off what you’ve done. The App starts with the (pivotal) fork in the adoption road: Domestic or International. If you click on International, then it lays out the process for both Hague and Non-Hague countries (2 very different processes).
Who this App is perfect for:
~ people interested in adoption and the differences between domestic, foster, international, Hague, and Non-Hague
~ people who have just started an adoption, people who are planning to start an adoption, or people who are in the middle of an adoption
~ people who want to know what really goes on in a “home study”
~ adoption junkies” ~ Adoptionistas Review
“I just downloaded the “Mom at Last” app – for adoption…. AWESOME!! I’m very excited that we can work ahead of the system and have some of the paper word ready in advance!!” ~ Niki S. Facebook Recommendation
“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Very helpful, lot of information for both domestic and international adoptions. Love the checklist of all the documents needed. Love the mom at last link with all the resources for when you get home. Hope to use those very soon. Love the Memoir link as well to tell your story or see others stories.” ~ My Crazy Savings Review
“The Adoption App seems to be a great way for adoptive parents to stay organized during the process and may also serve as a useful resource for information.” ~ Barb Luciano of Alliance for Children
“I love the adoption App! I have shared it with a friend who is having a hard time navigating the adoption process. She is very thankful.” ~ Carole LaVan Simons – Review from Facebook
“Available for download on an iPhone or iPad, this app is easy to use and provides a lot of practical information. It guides you through all the steps involved and has a handy checklist of tasks that need to be completed before adoption can be approved” ~ Twin Mummy & Daddy Review
“If only this app had been available at the beginning our journey…. it’s packed full of great information that every pre-adoptive parent should be armed with …whether domestic infant adoption, adoption from foster care or international adoption! From a calendar to organize all of those important meeting dates to a checklist filled with valuable information about the many required documents. It even includes links to information by state! I was thrilled to see that the check list can be edited so it can be tailored to your specific case or agency requirements.
I would highly recommend this app to any family looking into adoption! To have this kind of organization available at your fingertips is worth far more than $4.99!” ~ Foster Adoption Review
