About Me


I have a passion for helping others. I traveled to Asia as a teenager and have been drawn to the plight of orphans ever since. This desire to help children has grown and evolved over the years. I enjoy helping families through the many challenges and rewards of parenting. Although I have been professionally involved in the field of adoption for over 15 years, my greatest experience has come through living and learning with my own children. My husband and I are blessed to be the proud parents of fourteen children (twelve of whom joined our family through the miracle of international adoption, domestic adoption, as well as embryo adoption). We have certainly been through adjustments with our children. Seven of our children joined our family after their previous placements did not work out. Due to this personal history, I have seen the result when families do not receive the help that they need. It is my greatest desire to help keep families intact and encourage them during the many transitions in life.
