Note From Our Founder & CEO

I started this company because of our own difficult adoption journey and the desire to help others learn from my experience. We always had a desire to adopt, and after multiple failed fertility treatments, we decided to begin our adoption journey. We were soon matched with an expectant mother due in a few months. For multiple reasons however, the adoption disrupted. We were heartbroken.

It was an agonizing and dark time for us, but we learned through this experience how the adoption process could be better. With my legal background as an attorney, I found a way to help other couples avoid many of the pitfalls of adoption.

Today, I have two beautiful daughters: one from a thoughtful young birth mother and one that came to us as a surprise pregnancy. I have become embedded in the adoption community since adopting our daughter and served on the board and as President of the Arizona Chapter of Gift of Adoption for nearly 6 years. We hope our journey inspires other families to grow through positive adoption experiences.
