I started working in adoptions services in the summer of 2000 after my own first successful adoption. After failed IVF and 4 failed adoptions I was determined to have a child and fill the hole my husband and I were missing.  We finally, in the summer of 1999, received the wonderful news that a beautiful baby boy was waiting for us to take him home.  After my son came home I was able to begin the process of helping others in their adoption journey. We began the adoption process again in 2000 and the summer of 2001 we received the amazing news that we would be bringing home a beautiful baby girl. Due to my passion for adoption and my determination to assist others in their adoption journey is how Baby Butterflys Connections, LLC Adoption Consulting began.
