Adoption of the Month - June 2015

My husband, Tom, and I have three grown children, five grand children, and one great grandchild, Kallie, whom we have adopted.

When our granddaughter became involved in drugs our lives changed forever.       
Our granddaughter, due to drug addiction, was deemed unfit to parent her daughter, and because of economic situations we were the only option for caring for this child. 

Once a child enters the foster care system it can be quite a journey.  The only advice we would share with others who might be dealing with Child Protective Services is to be patient.  It can be a long and bumpy road and out adoption process took two and one half years. 
 
Working with Mark was great!  Once the adoption process had been completed and the adoption was scheduled, Mr. Iverson made the legal process easy.  He represented us in court and made the actual adoption ceremony a pleasant experience.

Adoption has enriched our lives more that you know.    Our adoptive daughter is a joy and the light of our lives.
