Family Portrait 4

Family Portrait 4

I was chosen, I was wanted, J was cherished, I grew in their hearts, I was the missing piece, I was loved...

I was adopted.


Hope provides home studies and post placement reports to families across Northern Wyoming as well as pre and post adoption support for both birth parents and adoptive parents.  Hope is certified by the state of WY as a home study adoption agency.


“We were drowning. Our child’s challenges were more than we knew what to do with. We didn’t know where to go for help and direction. We felt hopeless…” Many parents raising a child or children from hard places don’t know where to go to find the support their families need. The goal of Hope is to offer the direction and practical help these families seek.


I am an adoptive mom. We are an adoptive family. All of our 4 children came to us through the gift of adoption (both domestically and internationally). We have also been foster parents and I grew up in a home with many foster children. We have lived the challenges and victories of both the adoption process and the post adoption adjustments as well as the unique challenges of parenting kids from hard places. We understand that whether you are an adoptive, foster, blended or biological family, parenting challenging children can feel discouraging and hopeless. I am deeply passionate about adoption and about helping families through their adoption or parenting challenges. The heartbeat of my mission is to offer hope and practical help to families in their adoption and parenting journeys.
