"Adoption is a joyous journey. Becoming an adoptive family can also be an overwhelming process and it is difficult to find support and empathy from a knowledgeable professional. Deb is one of the few social workers who has an in-depth understanding of all issues related to adoption. In fact, I have no reservations in stating she is an expert in this field.

"We attended a class that Deb instructed that marked the beginning of our adoption journey. She laid out a program for us to follow that was built with the heart and well-being of an adopted child in mind. The rules were strict and much time would be needed for proper bonding and healing. Fast foward 3 years, I wondered how in the world did my  child become so well adjusted. So in tune with herself. So full of confidence. Comfortable with herself and her story. So happy. Then I remembered Deb and her program. The impact of that class still touches our lives to this day." - Lisa & Scott
