What some seekers wrote about our work...
Petra Pávková helped me find my birth mother in 2010. I can´t imagine going through that without her. When I found my mother´s name and adress it was emotional explosion for me. Mrs Pávková helped me to calm down the situation and took professionaly care about it. She had consulted with me every step and I turned back to her with trust with all of my next ideas and feeling. We wrote a letter to my birth mother together. That I would like to meet my mother personally. However, in the letter was adress of Mrs. Pávková, to give my mother freedom in decision about writing back. And also it was my protection in case, that the women would be antisocial.
Mrs Pávková also came with me on first meeting with my birth mother. She was my foothold. I had no idea, who actually gave birth to me and why she left me. I could find out truth, that would be very painful. And I couldn´t stand it, even in my 37 years. Petra Pávková with brilliantly questions was able to control our conversation, save intense emotions, and treat mother´s guilty feelings and my great mistrust and also feeling of regret, that she gave up on me at the beginning. She was also like barometer. As neutral professional, she could capture lies, which I wouldn´t notice.

When I went by car from the first meeting with my son Honza´s birth mother I chatted with Honza. I said him that it must be perfect to know where he is from and who is he and that he hasn´t had probably a black hole like before. And he replied: "Exactly, I thought all time that I was some birth mistake, some error an dnow I finelly know it´s not true. They wanted me and cared for me. And I was actually baby. Mum, I was also the baby!"
I have to point out that we always spoke nice about his birth family... We saw that contact fullfil what we hoped for - taht Honza will feel better with himself. I´m glad taht Petra went with us from the beginning. She was our support from searching and firt contacting birth family for meeting with birth family.So we could everything felt with our son at rest.

I wanted to find my parents mainly because of curiosity. If I didn´t find them, I wouldn´t actually know who I really am. And probably it would be also sad, because I would be thinking that my parents didn´t want me. But the truth was different. They just can´t take care of me back then. But they are happy, that they had me. When I met them I had super feeling, that I know, after whom I. But it was also little bit weird. Now I think about them only in good way. I like them and I would like to see them again.

We were with my husband thinking over how to say our daughter that she is from donated embryo for a long time. We knew it better to say that as much earlier and we waited for right moment and friendly family mood. But this moment hadn´t come. Maybe we had fruitless worrying of her possible questions we weren´t prepare for. Maybe we worried that our love would be doupted in her eyes. Meeting with Mrs. Pavkova helped me calm down and obtained the assurance. I regreted not finding profesional help earlier. We spoke about various alternative of situation. Rich professional and personal experiences of Mrs. Pavkova helped me. She suggest practical ways how to say that. We said that to our children acording these advices without problems. Both children nicely reacted: "In the main we have each other." My many thanks to Mrs. Pavkova
