Family Begins with Love


Work Success

Robyn has facilitated more than 500 adoptions as the Director of Programs for 15 years at a well regarded Foster Family and Adoption Agency. Prior to that, she worked with children, birth parents, prospective adoptive parents, and adult adoptees at the Department of Children and Family Services. Her close collaboration with the Human Rights Campaign and their All Children-All Families Initiative, made it possible for her agency to become the second in the country to receive the HRC Seal of Recognition, awarding them the status of a Recognized Leader in supporting LGBT families.

Caring Nature

As an adoption service provider for more than 10 years, Robyn has counseled and supported birth parents throughout the process of placing their babies for adoption. She is frequently invited to speak at prospective parent events on adoption and alternative ways of creating families. Personal experience in creating her own family in a non-traditional way gives her greater insight into what clients might experience. She looks forward to sharing her knowledge with those wanting a family.
