Powerful Coaching With a Practical Heart
Read what people are saying about Iris, the Expert Adoption Coach
Iris has the compassion and toughness that will help you
As the former Exec Dir of an adoption agency, she has worn many different hats, some simultaneously. . Iris was, at one time warrior and saint- fighting for the world’s children and always working hard to bring them to their forever families. She stayed focused in a constantly changing environment, “kept her head” when things got challenging, and will help you do that too, as your coach.
Iris is good at many things- but her real strength lies in her solid communication skills. She has the ability to make difficult and complex situations easy to understand. She is a pro at helping people articulate and understands their feelings, which leads to better understanding for them and for better performance.

An asset to her coaching clients, as she has been to the adoption community
Over the years I have been very impressed by two talents that Iris has. One of these is her ability to work with people and the other is her ability to be persistent in problem solving. Regarding the first areas, Iris has worked with hundreds of families from all walks of life in their quest to adopt children, and in hers to find homes for parentless children. This has always been a stressful time for families because of the precarious nature of adoption. Iris has always worked with these families in a compassionate, and yet frank and honest manner. As for her problem solving skills, Iris has become a master at untangling the very complicated web of problems surrounding international adoption. It is because of her perseverance and diplomatic skills in working with foreign officials that these problems become resolved and there was usually a positive resolution to the situation.

Positive outlook, truthful & encouraging at all times
Our first encounter with Iris Arenson-Fuller was at the time we began our journey to adopt a child. Her compassion for her work and her honesty were two of the qualities that initially steered us in the direction of choosing her agency for our adoption. She is very thorough and is an excellent communicator. Iris was always very responsive to our questions and made sure to get all of the facts before providing us with an answer. She has a positive outlook and is able to be truthful and encouraging at the same time, which can sometimes be a difficult task. There were also times that we contacted Iris for advice on situations and she was able to provide feedback without being judgmental.
Even now that our son’s adoption is complete, we continue to remain in touch. We are confident that we could contact her at any time and she would always be open to offer advice that we seek, or to just listen if we needed to talk. f you have any questions please feel free to contact us; Iris can provide our contact information to you.

The Federal Trade Commission requires website owners who display testimonials to say that each person’s experiences and results are unique to them. What you will achieve from an adoption coach entirely depends on your goals, your openness with Coach Iris, and the degree of effort you contribute to the adoption coach process.
Due to the individual nature of your motivation, skills, and willingness to engage in new ways of thinking, Adoption Coach Iris can make no guarantees about your personal outcome.
