Testimonials

From our clients…

NZMG Foundation grant recipients and education program participants Holly and Clark Bray with their daughter, Avery Amelia.

“We are thrilled to have received a grant from the NZMG Foundation, and are also tremendously grateful for the support we received through the Education Program. It is a remarkable resource for information and emotional support, and it broke down the adoption process into steps we could easily follow. We strongly encourage anyone considering adoption to contact the Foundation!”
-Holly & Clark Bray, Hillsborough, NC

“The NZMG Foundation provided us with a great resource and gave us the information and courage to go through all of the steps throughout the adoption process. They also connected us with a wonderful network of other families who have faced the same issues as us.”
-Molly & Patrick Fitzsimons, Durham, NC

“The NZMG Foundation truly knows and understands the struggles that families go through with infertility. We definitely recommend them to any family who is trying to adopt, who wants to learn more about the adoption process after facing infertility, and anyone who wants to donate or volunteer!”
-Dori & Terrance Wilson, Greensboro, NC

“The NZMG Foundation provided us with great information and proved to be an invaluable resource for us. It was wonderful to connect with others who had been through the same struggles to become parents. They gave us the beneficial tools that we needed to get started. Now, as we prepare to take the next steps in our adoption journey, the Foundation continues to be a great support system with the wealth of knowledge and understanding of the process.”
-Emily & Matthew Anderson, Clayton, NC

“We really, honestly, credit the NZMG Foundation and its education program with how fast we moved through the process once we decided we were going to adopt.  It allowed us to focus our research and make decisions much faster than we otherwise would have been able to do.”
-Rachel & James Sullivan, Fayetteville, NC

“The NZMG Foundation truly provided us a blueprint to the adoption process.  As we initiated it, some questions came up and they were always willing and accessible to answer them and provide further guidance to us.  The adoption process can be frustrating and anxiety producing, but having the Foundation on our side really eased our minds.”
-Kristen & Arlo Laitin, Durham, NC

“We’re so grateful to the NZMG Foundation for awarding us an adoption grant. Their work supporting adoptive families is crucial for couples like us who have emerged from the emotionally and financially draining world of fertility treatments into the beautiful world of domestic open adoption.  We feel strengthened by the community support that this grant represents!”
-Amy Entwistle & Alyson Hyman, Carrboro, NC

“We are so glad our social worker told us about the NZMG Foundation. Not only will the grant help us with our adoption expenses, but we had the opportunity to meet the founders and hear their story. They were so supportive of our situation and provided a lot of great information. We will be using the grant to cover some of our attorney costs, but more than that, we look forward to working with the foundation in the future, building relationships, and hopefully helping many more adoptive families out there.”
-Caren & Jonathan Crain, Fuquay-Varina, NC

From our clinical partners…

“Our fertility patients are often daunted by the prospect of exploring adoption.  There are new systems to learn, and new decisions to be made.  The NZMG Foundation understands these issues from the inside and treats individuals with great care and respect.”

From the community…

“National Council for Adoption has been privileged to work with many great organizations on behalf of children, birth parents, and adoptive families.  As part of National Adoption Month [2012], I am pleased to acknowledge the good work of the Noah Z.M. Goetz Foundation as they help North Carolina families experiencing infertility realize the dream of parenthood through adoption.  The Foundation is making an important and positive difference as they educate about adoption and provide grants to help families with the high cost of adoption.”
-Chuck Johnson, President & CEO, National Council for Adoption, Alexandria, VA

“The topic of adoption is a crucial piece to have in our portal.  The whole point of the Education Portal is to give patients FREE information on all their options on infertility, and Adoption is a mandatory piece to give patients.  Having Parul Goetz present about Domestic Adoption was an honor for Pay it Forward Fertility Foundation.  The foundation could not think of a better presenter about Domestic Adoption than Parul.  The information that is presented and shared is the best information patients can receive from an online source.  Thank you NZMG Foundation for taking our portal to another level of greatness!”
-Lori Moscato, Co-Founder & Chairman, Pay It Forward Fertility Foundation, Raleigh, NC

“Parul and Nathaniel Goetz have turned a personal passion into a movement that is having such a positive impact on individuals and our community, and it’s great to see how successful their efforts have been.”
-Lori O’Keefe, President, Triangle Community Foundation, Durham, NC
