What Clients Are Saying About Gulf Coast Adoptions

Clay and Cheryl are fantastic to work with, have excellent communication, and it was obvious their heart is in the work they do. In addition to supporting us, they equally supported our birth mother throughout the adoption process. We feel blessed that GCA was the firm we were matched with, to adopt our beautiful daughter!!


Cheryl and Clay were absolutely incredible through the entire adoption. Cheryl was available anytime we needed her, and answered our many questions…which were numerous. This is not a process we could’ve navigated so smoothly without them. We have an incredible baby boy. I never guessed our time in Florida and the adoption itself would be so smooth. We trust Cheryl and Clay so much and when we’re ready to adopt a second, they’ll be the first call we make.


Cheryl and Clay were absolutely phenomenal when we adopted our daughter through their law firm. The pandemic made everything a bit more challenging for us but they were persistent and were able to get us everything we needed from the courts for the finalization. We can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for us. We will definitely be reaching out to them again for baby #2! I would recommend their firm to anyone!


For our family, we believe that God is in control of all things. We know without a doubt He placed the Whittaker’s of GCA in our path, to help sew our family together, as He intended, and we will always keep them close at heart. We thank you, Cheryl and Clay, from the bottom of our hearts!!!
