Adoption S.T.A.R vs Beacon House

Hello everyone!! My husband and I have been researching adoption agencies a little over 6 months and have narrowed down our choices between Adoption S.T.A.R and Beacon House. I have read mixed reviews on Adoption S.T.A.R and have not had any luck finding reviews on Beacon House. Has anyone used either of these agencies? If so, what was your experience?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, we plan to make a decision by May 2020.


To be honest I’ve never heard about Beacon House but my really good friends adopted through Adoption S.T.A.R and now they are living with a child in their Phuket real estate So I would recommend to try their services and good luck!

I’m sorry for such a late response. We adopted through Adoption STAR 5 years ago and had a good overall experience with them. I know they currently have an Ambassador Program. Call and ask to be linked to an Ambassador. That is a client who has adopted through them and is willing to “meet” with you for coffee and chat and answer all of your questions even the difficult ones. They can do this over the phone or Zoom of course. I noticed a lot of the negative reviews are from people who did not adopt through them and I can’t imagine anyone being able to give a great review after things don’t work out. It would be easy to become bitter and blame the agency. I would take any review with any agency with a grain of salt.
