After one successful adoption with a credible Adoption Agency, Kate and her husband decided they wanted to adopt again. This time they decided on a different adoption agency in their state. Kate and her husband were matched quickly but various requests and exchanges started to feel a little too fishy. After a drained bank account, false promises, and refusal to let them speak to the agency-appointed attorney, Kate knew she had to reach out to a trusted Board Certified Adoption Attorney to get advice.
Join us as we unravel the horrors that Tara Lee wreaked upon countless families before her arrest was made via the FBI. Thanks to Kate and some other vigilant adoptive parents, Tara’s adoption scandal was uncovered and poses as a cautionary tale to all that finding a reputable adoption agency is the most important thing a family can do on their journey.
A Special Note: We want to send a HUGE Thank You to Mandi Shelley for sharing her surrogacy experience with us on the podcast.
