About Us

Heart and Soul Adoptions is not your typical adoption agency. As you get to know each of us and work with us, you will understand what we mean by that statement.

With over 45 years of combined experience in adoption we know that we bring a different level of knowledge, passion, love, and understanding to an agency. This is not a job to any one of us. This truly is a passion. We are here to hold your hand every step of the way. Expectant mothers, we will help you find the right family for your baby. Adoptive families, we want to help you find your baby. When you decided to take the journey of adoption you might not have known all that you may experience. There are many highs and could be many lows. You will have feelings that you may have never thought you would feel. Hopefully, with everything you go through on your journey, you will be a better person and be able to share your story with someone else and touch their live somehow. That is what we are about. Each of us have had our lives touched by someone through adoption, either by being adopted or adopting, and now want to touch yours.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about your options and becoming acquainted with us. We love what we do and hope you feel that love when you talk and work with us. We have made many friends through adoption and hope you will too. Adoption is a wonderful thing, we all have so much to offer.

We welcome you on board and as part of our adoption family.

This is not a job to any one of us. This truly is a passion. We are here to hold your hand every step of the way.

It is the mission of Heart and Soul to place children in families where they will be nurtured with love and opportunity. Every child deserves a devoted, loving family. Every birth mother deserves to be treated with respect, compassion, and love. And every adoptive family deserves to be helped through education, support and encouragement.

Denise Garza Executive Director

Sixteen years ago adoption began a very strong presence in Denise's life. Being involved when her best friend adopted her first child and seeing what a difference adoption made, she knew that she wanted to make that difference in people's lives. Denise has a strong passion for working with women experiencing unexpected pregnancies. Her immediate connection and friendship with those she supports throughout their pregnancy is something she highly values. Denise and her husband live in Farmington with their 7 wonderful children.
