Adoptive Parents

Adoption is a wonderful way to create a family. Being selected is very exciting but it also involves complicated legal proceedings. As such, proper legal advice is essential no matter which type of adoption you are pursuing.

Ellen found us both of our children. Extremely professional and caring. Everything went smoothly legally. Maggy her social worker was amazing too! Forever grateful.


Ellen Kaplan you have no idea how thankful I am for you! You are an answered prayer times 100!! Your heart, your drive and your willingness to give of yourself literally is incredible! We wouldn’t have made it to this day without you! You spent all-nighters on our case, writing, reading, researching to help serve justice for our girls that wouldn’t have had a voice without you! You were a warrior in a battle up against so many- in a courtroom that seemed so one-sided! You were strong, bold courageous and willing! You were kind loving and supportive to my family! You just out did yourself in so many ways! I will forever be thankful to your legal representation, your generosity and our forever friendship!! We love you auntie Ellen, grandma and forever family. Thank-you – thank-you-thank you.


In 2017, my husband & I contacted Ellen Kaplan’s office in hoping to start the initial adoption process. To our surprise, we matched with an expectant mom almost immediately. After a very long wait with our first adoption, this was a huge relief! Ellen, Lyn & Maggy were extremely helpful & supportive throughout the entire process. The wonderful support given to our son’s birth mom was very much appreciated. Our sweet baby boy is such a joy! I highly recommend Ms. Ellen Kaplan to any prospective adoptive families. ❤️

Ellen is an amazing woman to have on your side. Thank you for all you did to build a family!!!


“Ellen, Lynn, Jim, and Maggie were there for me every step of the way. My case was complicated and time consuming but Ms.Kaplan fought for my rights and my precious baby is now prospering and growing with her loving adoptive parents.
Thank you to Kaplan and her staff forever!”

“My name is Danyelle and I would recommend Ellen Kaplan to anyone in the world, I could never have asked for better supportive friends thru my double experience of going thru adoption and I look forward to helping any mothers thru this decision I love each and everyone of the women that work for her and with her.”


“My teenage sister was pregnant and decided on adoption. Ellen provided encouragement and guidance and took great care finding just the right adoptive parents. My sister gets to hear how her baby is doing and she is very happy with her choice. I hope less people choose abortion and instead, seek adoption service like Ellen Kaplan provides.”


“Thank you for the understanding compassion and love you show me and have showed me throughout the process of my adoption plan. Throughout my pregnancy and for being by my side at the hospital every moment. That really meant a lot to me. I’m not going to lie, at one point I thought I wasn’t sure I could go through with it. There’s no way I could take him home. I knew I had to put the needs of my baby before the wants of my own like the quote your office uses. The adoptive parents I chose will be wonderful parents and I find comfort in that. Thank you for the comfort and the talk you gave me at the hospital, for the love you all showed me and my kids. We love you. Hugs and love,”

Birth Mother

Giving LIFE to a child, giving LOVE to a child, giving HOPE to a child, giving MORE FAMILY to a child.

So much giving – never giving up.

-Terra Cooper

Love is UNSELFISHLY choosing for another’s highest good.

-C.S. Lewis

A mother’s love for her child is like no other love.

To be able to put that feeling aside because you want the best for your child is the most unselfish thing I know.

-Natasha, Adoptions Birth Mother

You have given someone the gift of life, and someone else a child to love.
