About Me

I am blessed by adoption ... in so many ways.  My husband (and law partner) and I have adopted 4 children (and fostered others).    I have the privilege of having a law practice that is all about adoption.  Over the years, I have helped many many families adopt children, and have helped birth parents find loving homes for precious children.    I have been doing this for enough years now that I sometimes find myself approached by a young adult when I'm out in the community who recognizes me from his or her "adoption day" photos.  It is humbling, really, to be a part of something so wondrous.
