We're here to offer hope, share wisdom, and mentor you along the way.
You are not alone.

Our team represents all three parts of the adoption triad.
We've really been there.

We've been around the block a couple times with kids by birth, adoption, and foster care.
And lived to tell about it.

Lisa Qualls

Birth/First Mom and Adoptive Mom
Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption and former foster parents. I’m the author of The Connected Parent which I co-wrote with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis. As a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) Practitioner and Certified Enneagram coach, I support adoptive parents in their parenting journey. Together we recognize the hard and celebrate the beauty of adoption.

Adoptee and Adoptive Mom
Patrick and I are parents to six by both birth and adoption (ages 14-23). Our open-door policy has blessed us with lots of honorary family members along the way. As an Enneagram Coach, Safe and Sound Practitioner, and Empowered to Connected parent trainer, I love helping families laugh more and yell less. I hate cleaning and love extra crispy french fries.
