Our Team

We’re together for one reason—to transform the adoption process to ensure every child achieves belonging through family.

Every day we work as social workers, technologists, researchers, data analysts, family and program coordinators. But we’ve united for the sake of every stakeholder in a singular promise: We make connections, fast. At Adoption-Share, we’ve brought together the best strategic and empathetic minds to design something powerful—and we witness its impact every single day.

Meet our experienced, driven team—people from all over the globe who take families, children, and agency work to heart. Together, we’re crafting compassionate, streamlined, data-driven solutions that will change the lives of children and families everywhere.
