We met recently with our new adoption social worker from Catholic Charities. We spent some time getting to know each other at one of our favorite places, Caribou Coffee ;-). She has a great skill set to offer and will be an awesome person to walk this journey with.
There have also been a few other changes at our agency with a new birth parent social worker starting and a new staff member joining the post-adoption counseling team. We look forward to an upcoming networking night with them and an opportunity to meet a well known adoption outreach specialist Hal Kaufman. Hal is the founder of My Adoption Advisor and his mission is “To help families connect with the right birth parents more quickly and safely.” You can find out more about Hal and his organization here: http://www.myadoptionadvisor.com/about/founder/
