Here is what people say about us.

Very knowledgeable about adoption

“Our family could not be more grateful for the hard work and dedication from Compass Adoption Services!  We found out we were chosen to adopt last minute and they went above and beyond to accommodate us and get us started on our home study journey.  Terri is very knowledgeable of adoption.  She will put your mind at ease and will work with you to make your adoption dreams a reality.  I highly recommend Compass Adoption Services to anyone who is going through this process! Thank you for helping us secure our adoption.”

The Childers Family

Amazing support, dedication

“The amazing support, assistance and dedication was unbelievable for our family in working with [The Datz Foundation] to complete our step parent adoption.  When we [reached out], we watched our adoption process kick into high gear. Terri was patient, informative, and over all one of the most important pieces to the puzzle we had been putting together for over a year. We are so grateful for the time and effort we received. She was a big part of my daughter’s story and journey to finally becoming her daddy’s legal child. We encourage anyone who is adopting, going through a step-parent adoption, or just looking for information to trust the process and trust this company. Above and beyond the call of duty is what you find here. Thank you so much to Terri and [The Datz Foundation] for finally making our family whole. We will forever be grateful.”


Quality home study

“Compass Adoption Services has been amazing throughout the whole home study process. We didn’t know where to begin, but Terri walked us through everything from start to finish, answering all of our questions along the way. We cannot say enough about how wonderful this experience has been. Even the coordinator from our adoption agency commented on the quality of our home study report. If you are looking for a thorough and helpful home study provider, look no further than Compass!”

Made this process easy

“I cannot say enough great things about The Datz Foundation now Compass Adoption Services.  We are first time parents “to be” and the adoption process was overwhelming. Terri made this process so easy.  The way The Datz Foundation, now Compass Adoption Services, is set up makes it so easy to work through the list of things you need to do for your home study. I can’t wait to call and share the news we finally found our baby.  So if you’re even pondering the idea of working with DATZ now Compass Adoption Services, ponder no more. They are FABULOUS.”

Stephanie and Jason

Extremely kind and transparent

“Our experience with the Datz Foundation, now known as Compass adoption services, was truly a good experience. [They] made the process as smooth as possible and were extremely kind and transparent. Answered every question we had. We couldn’t of gone with a better agency, truly. To have them be a part of bringing our family together is everything. They get back to you in a very timely manner and are here to help in anyway they can. I would truly pick them again if I had to do it again.”


In capable hands from day one

“Our experience working with Terri from Compass Adoption Services was a dream. Her communication was prompt, straightforward and transparent at all times. From my first conversation with Terri on the phone, I felt educated about the process and encouraged that it was doable and even going to be an enjoyable experience.

Any time I had questions, Terri responded quickly and thoroughly so we knew that we were in capable hands from day one.”


Making us all feel at ease

“Terri has an excellent way of making a process that has the potential to be intimidating, very pleasant, calm, enjoyable and doable.

Terri has a calming manner which also made her great at communicating with our kids and making us all feel at ease as we shared the intimate details of our family life and history.”


Wonderful in educating us

“Compass Adoption Services (The Datz Foundation) was wonderful in welcoming us, helping us understand their role, and educating us on the adoption process. Terri and Brooke were easily and quickly accessible and made us feel at ease as we prepared for our home study. They helped us to identify resources that would educate us in our adoption process and felt like partners rather than those we needed to report a litany of items to. When preparing for our home study, Terri helped us in understanding timing of steps and paperwork to best align for initial approval as well as if extended/renewal of  approval would be needed. I would highly recommend working with Terri and anyone on her team.”



“Working with Teri at the Datz Foundation was a dream come true. She was caring and helped guide me through the whole process. You must tell intimate details about yourself and your life and she made it easy. She was so non-judgmental. I couldn’t have been more comfortable. I highly recommend using their services.”


Narrative represented our family

“Brooke was very easy to talk with and put us at ease explaining the home study process before we began. Our current child was so comfortable with her he just hopped into her lap! When putting our story together she did a wonderful job of distilling all our conversations into a narrative that represented our family, wishes, and relationship.”


Guidance and insight

“Our experience with Datz and with Amy couldn’t have been more positive and helpful. Within the first five minutes of talking with Amy we were immediately at ease with the home study process. Amy made us feel excited and peaceful about our home study process and provided us great advice and guidance and insights about he adoption process in general. It was an amazing experience to work with Amy and Datz. We are grateful to have them as part of our adoption journey.”
