Would You Like to Help us Honor Birth Parents?
We will be hosting our second annual birth mother retreat Feb. 15-17 at Wonder Valley Ranch and Resort.  We would love to shower the ladies with surprises and small tokens of love to honor their brave choice of adoption.  We could use personal notes (written to birth parents in general), cards of gratitude and/or encouragement, and/or small (thoughtful) gifts.  Please let us know if you would like to participate by calling our office.   

 Important Reminders
  1. If you have a child in adoptive placement and have not finalized, or if you are a waiting family, please make sure that your car insurance, driver's license/registration, and CPR/first aid is current and on file with the agency.
  2. Please send in a copy of your amended birth certificate after finalization.  We cannot close your file until we have received a copy.
