“Brenda was so supportive during our adoption journey, taking time to answer all the many questions we had about the home study process. She has a calming presence, is professional and direct, and helped to make a stressful time more pleasant. Most importantly, when our first placement fell through, she encouraged us to follow our hearts and keep trying, which led us to taking a chance on our next placement and bringing our precious daughter home. We will forever be grateful to Brenda and her staff for helping us to become parents!”

—Scott and Quinn

“It can seem like an overwhelming task. Feeling scared, excited, eager, lost, determined, impatient and every other emotion that goes along with navigating the whole adoption process. Not knowing where to begin or who to trust we took a chance with Brenda and are so lucky we did. She guided us and supported us through it all and had in-depth knowledge needed to understand all the policies and procedures and laws of adoption. She played an integral role in helping our family grow – by two! We have had no regrets and highly recommend her.”

We would not have been given our little gift two years ago had it not been for her dedication and commitment.”


“I contacted Brenda in 2010 when I started my adoption journey. At the time, I had no idea the journey would take me through three different country programs. Brenda was a wealth of information to help me be the most prepared that I could possibly be. She supplied me with a plethora of resources. In addition, she helped me tremendously navigate through all of the required updates while in process and all of the post placement reports. I have three daughters home thanks to Brenda’s knowledge and expertise in the adoption community!”
