Honesty, compassion, respect, inclusion, and accountability. It’s our job to handle all the details throughout the process and see it through to the granting of the adoption. This includes preparing the paperwork, hiring other professionals, and overseeing the process from beginning to end.
If we have been hired by adoptive parents, we cannot formally give you legal advice but that doesn’t mean we cannot work side by side with you. We want you to know you are included and will not be tossed-aside or ignored.
We are compassionate because we know you are going through a significant, emotional challenge, but we also strive to hold everyone accountable–you, the adoptive parents, DCFS, counselors, us– because there is so much at stake.
