"Searching to Reunite, LLC came to me late one night as I was pursuing my hobby of looking for my birth parents. I had already received my adoption record and was unable to find any trace of my mother and only cursory information was provided about my birth father. Then, I found Kenna. At the initial exchange of information I was put at ease by Kenna's professional demeanor. She is thoughtful and very understanding. Her tact and confidentiality allowed me to have a picture and information exchange with my birth mother. That's a wonderful gift when I never had considered pursuing any information at all. I felt it was an impossible and somewhat risky proposition. Kenna has been a true professional. She can guide you and advise you. I would highly recommend talking with Kenna if you are thinking about any type of adoption search." (Stephanie, TX)
"My father, an American GI and my mother divorced when I was four and my father returned to America. He wrote to me until I was 12 and then all correspondence stopped. I tried on and off for the last 36 years to find him, not getting anywhere, but Kenna found my family for me within months. I have been reunited with my aunt and many cousins. She had never forgotten me. I am now hoping to visit them in America this year. My father died in 1973. At the most I was only hoping for a copy of his death certificate, but now thanks to Kenna, I will find out about that side of the family which has always been a mystery." (Myra, England)
"No one can truly understand what it feels like, to hand the child, that has been growing inside of you for nine months, over to a complete stranger, to never see or hear from them again. While it may be the best decision for all concerned at the time, there is a sadness and longing for knowledge and relationship with that child."
“I will never forget the night (approximately 10 months ago) that I received the call that would forever change my life. Kenna called and asked me if August 21 meant anything to me. Since almost no one knew of the son I had put up for adoption on that day 28 years ago, I knew immediately that he was looking for me. I suppose feelings of guilt, fear of resentment, and not feeling the right to intrude had discouraged me to search for him. I was in a state of shock. However, Kenna assured me he was anxious to meet me. All of those years I was so sure he had been raised in a good, loving family…however I was horrified to discover his adoptive parents had mistreated and abandoned him at age five. My fears of his anger and resentment were dissipated when we spoke for hours the very next night. I was delighted to find he had a wonderful wife and two adorable little girls. Since the time we have met, we have grown closer than ever. He’s the light of my life and I am so thankful he had the courage to come looking for me.” (Laura, Ohio)
“I had spent countless hours on the internet asking questions and losing hope by the day. Just when I thought I was not ever going to find my birth mother, I stumbled across Kenna’s webpage. I contacted her, extremely skeptical, but within a matter of weeks Kenna found my Mother. I spoke with my Mother on the phone and have every day since our reunion. I have also spoken with my aunts, uncles, and my grandmother. I am planning a trip next month to Arkansas to spend a week with them. I may be a grown woman, but I can’t wait to crawl into my mother’s lap and catch up on 27 years worth of love. Trust Kenna and never, ever lose hope. (Kim, Texas)
“I truly believe that Kenna is one of God's Angels He sent to help fill all the holes in birth parents’ and adoptees’ hearts so we might find each other and be whole humans again. I had been searching for years for my 44 year old daughter, registering on websites, etc. in case my daughter was searching for me. Years went by. I finally got to the point where I was so frustrated I said to God, "I have to give this over to You, if it's Your will, then please lead me to someone who can find her". He showed me how POWERFUL He is – in a matter days I found Kenna! Within only 6 hours Kenna found my daughter! It has been a wonderful, life-changing event for me. I KNOW Kenna must have a special link to God in her quest to help people – it’s not JUST a job for her. You will find that during your journey Kenna will become one of your most beloved friends too. (Jan....Birthmother)
“Kenna is an angel. My daughter urgently needed to obtain medical information from her birth parents. Within 18 days, I was speaking to my daughter’s birth mom and receiving the information that I needed. Kenna’s kindness, thoroughness, professionalism, timeliness, and gentleness are a real blessing to those who are privileged to work with her. I also want to compliment her on the gentleness she showed my daughter’s birth mom. It was quite a shock for her to hear from Kenna, yet Kenna presented us in such a positive manner that my daughter’s birth mom was willing to accept a call from us that very evening.” (C.A., Ohio)
"It is very important work that Kenna does. And she handles it with such decency and compassion that you know that she is fully engaged with concern for how all parties might feel in these matters." SK (St. Louis, MO)
"Wow! What can I say about Kenna?!?! Nothing but good things. From our first conversation, she put me at ease and let me know that she knew exactly how I was feeling about just finding out I was adopted. I'm 33 years old and just found out two months ago! What a shock for me! However, Kenna's compassion, understanding and her ability to listen when I needed to vent or have 6000 questions I needed to ask, is what allowed me to be able to process this new journey I have embarked on in my life. Kenna has successfully found my birth mother and siblings and although I'm still deciding whether or not to make contact, I know if I do-Kenna will walk me thru that phase of this journey with the same compassion and commitment she has shown from the start."
"Thank you Kenna!
"You are an amazing woman with a gift and I know God will bless you abundantly! I will NEVER forget my experience with you and hope to keep in contact with you long after this journey is completed. To anyone who is considering using Kenna's services - don't consider it, just do it! You will be so blessed no matter what the outcome, from just having talked to Kenna."

"I want to say what a blessing Kenna has been to me this past month. She made looking for my son so easy. I thank God for sending her my way. Kenna found my son in less than two weeks and it has been wonderful. She followed through on everything she said she would do and more. What an easy person Kenna is to work with. Once again, thanks, you are wonderful." JS (MO)
"I just wanted to say how wonderful a person Kenna has been to us. When the road of searching got tough, I saw Kenna's website by accident. I really think God directed us to her and I thank God everyday for bringing Kenna to us and helping her to find our son after losing him for 22 years. Kenna, you are an angel sent from God. You give a lot of happiness to a lot of people. May God watch over you and keep you and yours safe and happy. Not a day goes by that we don't think of you. We say thank you, but that's just not enough. I will recommend you to anyone that is in need of finding a loved one." (D&R, TN)
“It is a rarity in life to meet someone as honest and genuinely sincere as Kenna. Being an adoptee herself, she understands. My wife and I had been trying for 20 years to conduct an in-depth search on our own for our birth son – with no luck. The State makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to ever discover the truth. God must have been guiding us, for it was our fate to meet Kenna. She found our son and made the initial contact for us. We thank God and we thank you, Kenna, for your kindness and expertise. Our life is now complete.” (Mr. & Mrs. D.G., Delaware)
