"Elisabeth’s presentation to the Target Adoption Network was enlightening, insightful and relevant. Her approach to bringing loved ones, colleagues, and educators “in on it” is timely and refreshing. I can enthusiastically recommend Elisabeth to other audiences interested in learning more about adoption and about supporting adoptive families."
