More than 30 years

Screening of prospective adoption parents and counselling birth parents

I love reaching out to people and I care for the well being of people

Assisting prospective adoption parents and guiding them in their decision towards adoption. Another thing is walking the road with birth parents during pregnancy and enabling them to make the best decision for their unborn child.

  1. Dear Hester, You were our contact as adoptive parents. We are aware of your role as intermediate and we still talk about you. Litlle things that you said makes a difference.
