Ashley’s Story – Amarillo and Texas Panhandle-Area Birth Parent Stories

“When I decided to choose an agency eight hours away from me, I was worried that the experience would not be personal. I was afraid that because I couldn’t go into the office, the agency wouldn’t really know me. The first few times I called after we started our journey, I would say ‘Hi, this is Ashley Andrews* from Amarillo…’ after a few times I realized how silly this was. They knew me and cared about me. From then on I just said ‘Hi, this is Ashley,’ and they would ask me how I was doing and what I needed. One of the things I liked most about AAI was the birth mother counseling services. Because I was so far away, I wasn’t sure how this would work out. Fortunately, AAI really cares about birthmothers. Before I even met with a counselor in person, I was able to e-mail Erin 24/7. I talked to her about everything, and she always responded. Eventually I was set up with a counselor in Amarillo. She was an amazing help, and even went to the hospital with me. I still see her today. It’s funny to think back to my initial anxieties. The agency may have been hundreds of miles away, but they were able to give me so much support that it felt like they were here.” *Name has been changed for confidentiality.
