We are making orphanage calls!
Angela spent over 4 years as a facilitator for an American adoption agency. She forged relationships with many SWI personnel in this time. Angela has made over 700 orphanage calls to date. She knows the culture and boundaries set by the various orphanage staff.
We have received photos from approximately 95% of these calls. Angela has a way with the SWI staff and she can usually get most questions answered within 7-10 business days.
*We have even been able to get new information
for prospective parents in the 48 hours window
for locking in a file on the shared list.*
We are always willing to try to ask for updates and have successfully asked for more medical information and tests for some of our clients.
IF YOU NEED HELP, WE WILL TRY TO GET ANSWERS!
If we ever receive sensitive new information about your child, the first call we make is to your agency to notify them.
(for instance, we have found that a child has passed away...or has had surgery...or has a new medical condition.)

THERE IS NO GUARANTEE any of this information will be given to us but we do offer your money back if the SWI does not cooperate with us.
If the SWI does give us the information but cannot give us photos you money will NOT be refunded.
All answers and photos are directly e-mailed from Angela to you! This is usually within 7-10 business days after your order.
Calls are only made Monday thru Friday.
It is not necessary to order a camera for the call. Most SWI's have a digital camera they use.
