Parent Quote 

Grace_BabyThe first moment we met Grace time stood still. My heart was filled with pure joy and excitement, knowing the long wait was over and our lives together would begin. Over the days that followed, we got to know the vibrant personality of our daughter. She was inquisitive and in awe of the world around her and filled our days with her big personality and contagious laugh. For all of us, there isn't one specific event but 17+ years of feeling our family is truly complete. We love our girl to the moon, stars, and back!

From the Graduate

Adoption is a part of my story but does not define me. I have grown up in a very happy home with my parents, two sisters and a brother who love me very much, as I do them. My future has been shaped by my parents and my siblings who have continuously encouraged me to always do my best and help others whenever possible. My future career to be in the health care field has been shaped by my two strong passions; one for the sciences and the other for helping people.

About Grace
