Amazing Arrivals, LLC, is the result of a passion I had for placing children with good adoptive homes. After more than 15 years of placing children with adoptive parents for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services for the State of Kentucky, I decided I wasn't ready to sit still and reminisce over all those years of placement; I still wanted to continue to make happy families. Hence, the agency, Amazing Arrivals, LLC, was born - literally.

After my retirement in June of 2013, I found out that I had been selected as a 2013 Angel in Adoption Award recipient, sponsored by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute,(CCAI), because of my dedication to adoption and positive child welfare practices. The Coalition raises Congressional awareness about the thousands of foster children in this country and the thousands of children around the world in need of permanent, loving homes. This made me even more determined to continue with my passion.
