President & Founder
A native Floridian, Vanessa fell in love with teaching at a young age by looking up to her mother. Being an educator, your heart is always connected to your students. But who would’ve ever known that one day her heart would open to adopt her own student and her sister.

Adopting children through foster care has inspired her to advocate for adoptive parents, adoptees, and foster children. Vanessa started a blog called “Life of an Adoptive Mother”, to let adoptive parents know that they are not alone.

Over 5 years later, Vanessa has provided much resources for adoptive parents, adoptive children, and most of all foster children.
