What Our Clients Are Saying

Blaine and Kendall with new adopted daughter
We can’t say enough wonderful things about Purl, specifically about Katie Zimmerman our advisor and the CEO. The communication, professionalism, empathy, compassion, competence, and hard work they show and put forth is amazing. We worked with another agency for our first child, and although that agency was great, it does not compare to Purl. We were so impressed by the response time from Katie and she really took the time to hear from us and chat with us anytime we needed. She has a number of years in this industry and it shows! She ultimately led us to another precious gift, a daughter. We have recommended Purl to a number of friends!
Blaine and Kendall

Jerod and Katy with adopted son
It is hard to even put into words how thankful we are for Purl Adoption Advisory and specifically, Katie Zimmerman, our consultant. Katie is SO knowledgeable about adoption laws and ethical considerations. Not only that, but she networks really well with adoption professionals across the country, making the adoption process as smooth and as quick as possible for all of her clients. Katie is the perfect mix of professional and personable and we appreciate that. We have our biggest blessing, our son, because of Katie and we cannot imagine our adoption journey unfolding any other way. Katie was so helpful during the home study process (helping us prepare for what was to come once we were certified to adopt) and even at the hospital after our son was born. She answered any and all questions we had as things happened in real time. She is amazing! We feel blessed to have been connected with her and we are so very thankful for the important work she does for families.

William and Jaimie with their new daughter
Katie at Purl Adoptions was immensely influential in our journey to adopt. She was a tremendous encouragement to us in so many ways. After a disrupted adoption we were greatly uplifted by her kind words, generosity, and encouragement . We now have a precious little girl through adoption and are grateful for the aid of Purl Adoptions in our journey. We highly recommend Purl for your adoption endeavor.

Purl Adoption – Katie Zimmerman is amazing and our adoption was successful because she was on our side!
As you get indoctrinated into the adoption world, you’re bound to meet many wonderful people with great knowledge, compassion, and drive. All of these traits, and more, are necessary in order to persevere through the processes of a home study, being certified, creating an adoptive parent profile, being matched, placement, etc. Katie Zimmerman and Purl Adoption was the single most important person/company in our adoption journey. Her extensive knowledge, network, guidebook, training sessions, etc. was used at every step in the adoption and they provided the most accurate and all-encompassing roadmap to making our family. Still, the most important qualities that Katie possesses is empathy and unrelenting emotional support! Katie always treated us as we were priority number one and was always looking out for our best interests! She cared, nurtured, educated, and guided us. And, in turn, we were prepared to, and capable of, focusing on the courts, on the birth parents, on the hospitals, on the attorneys, and, most importantly, on our baby! Because of Purl Adoption, we have a beautiful baby girl that we call our daughter.

Purl Advisory & Katie Zimmerman are the absolute BEST! They are the advocates for the potential adoptive parents throughout the entire adoption process. Katie’s connections throughout the country were the main reason we were able to match & place so quickly. Hiring Purl & utilizing their services were the best decision we made in our adoption process. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Leuck Family Portrait
We highly recommend Purl. Katie walks you through the entire process. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about adoption. She is clear and kind about expectations and was available to answer any questions we had. We felt so supported by Katie. She was tenacious about finding the right match for our family. The only regret we have was not connecting with her sooner.
Matt and Trixie

Austin and Amanda with their newly adopted daughter
Finding the right words to express our gratitude and love for Purl is difficult because without them, I would not be sitting here holding our baby girl. The world of adoption is tricky and working with Katie made us feel like we suddenly had a road map to guide us on the journey. Katie provided the push that we needed while minimizing risks. The dedication and professionalism we experienced with the whole Purl team was exceptional. We truly felt like part of the Purl family and thanks to them, we can officially call ourselves parents and a party of three!
Austin and Amanda

Spencer and Ellie with newly adopted daughter
It is truly impossible to put into words the gratitude we have for Katie Zimmerman and Purl Adoption Advisory in helping guide us through the adoption of our little girl! From our very first conversation when she spent time answering all our questions, to being just a call away during the wonderful chaos that was our match and placement –knowing Katie was there gave us so much peace. How we navigate our role in the adoption triad so that we can best parent our daughter is in such a large part to the advice given and the example set by Katie and the whole team. This experience is one of the most incredible we have ever been a part of, and we know we are just at the beginning! As we sit here cuddling our little girl, we just can’t imagine life without her –and knowing that Purl was there from the very beginning and through all the ups and downs makes us forever grateful!
Spencer and Ellie

Zach and Sara with newly adopted son
With Katie’s help, we were successfully matched with an expectant mother within days of our home study certification! Purl’s relationships with various agencies and adoption lawyers made our adoption of our son easier than we could have ever imagined. We are extremely grateful for Katie’s guidance and thrilled to have celebrated our first Christmas as a family of three.
