where or how to get started. Through research, determination, and
a prayer, our dream of a family became reality. I started with a
plan, a notebook, assistance from a caring adoption consultant and
a lot of hard work; this was my family I was building. We had a
few heartaches along the way, but the pain of not having children
weeks we had three different birth mothers choose us. We were overwhelmed
and delighted. Many unsettling events would take place before
adoption would be finalized, many months later. Little did I know

VickyandJen.com, a family resource podcast. Mardie Caldwell was interviewed about her adoption experience. Listen in as Mardie shares her knowledge from her years of helping families through the adoption process, and being an adoptive mother herself.
According to Jim Roach, owner of Roach & Associates, PLLC, "Mardie has a keen understanding of people and their emotional hierarchies. While facilitating the adoption of children by caring, loving couples has been a great achievement, Mardie's accomplishment was facilitated by her awareness of the importance of love and nurturing in our lives. With great compassion for mothers seeking adoption for their children, Mardie understood the importance to those mothers of finding loving couples to whom they might entrust the new life created. Great capacity for love is required to understand the love of a mother for her child. Few people in our world today understand and manifest love for others. Mardie does both.”
Michael Ray Dresser, who has consulted Caldwell on her media appearances, has said "Mardie Caldwell is one of the most dedicated and caring professionals in her field. Mardie has been responsible for countless children finding the love and security that only the right family can provide."
