Helping Create Families, One Miracle At A Time
Since 1991 I have worked to ensure that the best interests of the child are protected. I began my legal career working more generally in family law. I continually found myself drawn to being an advocate for the children in the cases I was involved with. There are too many situations where what is best for the child is never given the full consideration it deserves. I made it my goal to make sure that does not happen. A negative childhood can shape the rest of that child’s life in ways that can be so destructive. While being raised in a loving and stable environment can help put a child on a path that allows him or her to build a satisfying and happy life.
Since 2000, I have focused exclusively on adoption and guardianships. By doing so, I feel that I am making the greatest impact in the lives of children who need to be placed with parents who can provide for them and who will make them their own. When children are in need, I can help. As an adoptive mother myself, my understanding of the adoption process and my extensive experience allow me to understand what all three sides of the process are going through — the birth parents, the adoptive parents and the child. I use that experience and perspective to help me create the smoothest path toward a successful adoption for everyone involved.
