I have been married since 1977 and am mother to 4 grown children, all adopted. My sons were born in Russia and adopted there and my daughters were born in California and adopted as infants here, so I have personal experience with both domestic and international adoption (and readoption). I have been practicing in the field of adoption since 1993 and have been involved in the successful completion of close to 2,000 adoptions of all types (independent, agency, stepparent, and adult). I have represented adopting parents and birth parents (depending on my role in the case) and have found this area of the law to be both challenging and rewarding. I have also helped to complete several guardianships.
When not working, I enjoy singing, traveling, volunteering at my church, reading, and working in my garden.
