It's where your heart is.
As you may have noticed, the International Adoption Center has gone through some changes recently. While we continue to provide the highest quality of care for you as you go through your international adoption, we have had some change in personnel. Christine Narad who was with the Center since its inception, left in August 2008. Kristen McCauley was with us for 6 months and went to follow her passion and is currently working with children with cancer. We are very excited to announce ther arrival of Jackie Payne. Jackie joined our clinic in March 2009. I am sure you will all enjoy getting to meet and work with her. Due to these changes we have put our spring Parent classes on hold but will restart them in the fall. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Many of you
will be excited to see that our annual picnic will still occur and Christine
Narad will be joining us for this as always. And of course the year would
not be complete without our annual Halloween party. For all of the details
check out our calendar of events. As always, it remains my great pleasure
to continue to work with each of you as you go through this exciting time.
