KIMBERLEY MENDEZ is an adoption consultant with A Aabagails Silver Spoon Adoptions, Inc. Kim, herself, has been a birth mother; having placed a set of twins and a son for adoption. Her own personal experiences make her a huge asset to the company, as she knows firsthand the emotions that women go through when having to make the decision of placement. Kim has grown through her experiences, and although she has great love for the children that she has placed for adoption, she states that she has no regrets. “ Placing my babies for adoption was the best choice that I could have made. It was difficult but I knew that I was unable to care for them emotionally, financially or physically. I know that they have a loving mother and father, a home to call their own and that they are loved. I had nothing to offer them at the time.”
