When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments; tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become. ~Louis Pasteur~
I am no stranger to the adoption process, as I am mom to 10 via adoption. My children have come to me from Russia, Ethiopia, and Ukraine, as young as 10 months and as old as 17. They have come to our family individually and as sibling groups, and at the end of the day weare all family.
Since my first adoptions from Russia in 1998 and 2000, the middle adoptions from Ethiopia in 2007 and 2008, and through my most recent adoptions from Ukraine in 2010 and 2013, it has been my pleasure to come along side other families struggling with adoption paperwork and adjustments after the children come home. I have been called paperwork guru, adoption Sherpa, cheerleader, and guide. As a program coordinator for LMI I hope to use my encouragement, dedication, drive and knowledge to assist you as your families grow.
