Open Door Adoption Services


Great books that features adoptive families
I have co authored a book with my birth sister Carole, Two Peas In A Separated Pod: A True Story of Adoption available through We think our book will inspire adoptees thinking about searching for their birth parents and all adoptees in the process of reuniting. We feel that even if you are not in the adoption world this book will keep your interest.
Carole and I decided that since we didn’t grow up together and didn’t really know anything about our past lives we would write it down. We liked what we saw and decided to continue writing about meeting each other and events following. This is how our book was born. We felt this book will help adoptees that can relate to all of the feeling of uncertainty and the unknown

“I spent 1,149 days in foster care and I was never adopted.
I entered foster care at the age of 15. My biological parents had their rights terminated my senior year of high school. The permanency plan the state created for me was for me to age out of the system and be thrusted into the “real world” at the age of 18.
If we want to discuss adoption from foster care, we need to talk about the kids that weren’t adopted.
* 5% of kids adopted from foster care are between the ages or 15-18
* 20% become homeless the day they age out of the system
* 60%-90% of victims rescued from human trafficking spent time in foster care
The reality is that 23,000 youth will age out of foster care this year alone. I know personally how hard it is to navigate life after foster care and I don’t want other youth to age out of care and have this be their reality.

When considering adoption, please keep these youth in mind.”

This is one of the many reasons why we do what we do here at Together We Rise.

"I could never foster, because I'd never be able to give them back." We've heard it a thousand times since we started this journey and the day has finally come that we had to say goodbye. Was it impossibly hard, yes. Did our hearts break, yes. Is everyone nervous about what the future holds, of course. Would we do it all over again? Yes, a million times yes.
Friends, there has never been more beautiful story than watching children and families heal and come back together again. These kids spent 10 months being loved by a huge community. They were constantly surrounded with by friends and family who embraced, prayed and cared for them.
My heart is broken in an entirely new way, but that is not a reason not to foster. It is a privilege to be a foster family, to be trusted by another mother to care and support their family during challenges. To lift all of them up and help them come back together.
I encourage you to get involved in the foster care community. Come along side us... Continuing to say yes is the easiest decision we have ever made.”
