Hello! My name is Jennifer and I am an Adoption Focused Social Worker.
My passion is Adoption and supporting all members of the Adoption Community, through counseling, home studies, matching services, and consultation. In a perfect world, Adoption would not exist, as it stems from loss of some kind. As it is, it is a social institution to ensure that children are taken care of. My hope is that if a child cannot remain with the birth family, that the child will be placed with a loving and supportive family who will acknowledge the complexity of normative adoptive issues that the adoptee will face, throughout the lifespan.
My 10+ years in the adoption field has primarily centered on foster care or “special needs” adoption, and I have also had the fortune of working with birth families and adoptive families through private domestic adoption.
My hope and the purpose of this website is to centralize information that Central Florida families will need while considering, pursuing, and living the adoption journey.
