About Me

I have a passion for adoption that derives from firsthand and family experience.  My aunt started the first international adoption program in Georgia, and she and her husband adopted two children from Korea . . . my first cousins.  Years later when I was married and yearning for children, my aunt assisted my husband and me in adopting our sweet daughter from Peru. 


 


In my eighteen years of practice, I have completed more than 3,500 adoptions, and I hope to reach the 4,000 mark in 2015. 


 


I have compassion and empathy for birth parents, who make a huge sacrifice to provide a safe and loving home for children they cannot parent, and for adoptive families, who open their hearts and homes to children in need.  Because adoption is my primary area of practice, cases are handled in my office with efficiency and expediency, so no family has to wait longer than necessary to become a "forever home" for a child.
