Message from Kelsey

As a birth mom, I know how difficult adoption is, and I am passionate about serving both expectant mothers and families well in the process, which includes finding support post-placement. With my personal experience as a birth mom and my professional experience in the adoption field, I know how difficult and confusing the adoption process can be for all three sides of the adoption triad: adoptive parents, birth parents, and the adoptee. Maintaining the highest ethical standards and keeping the child at the center in every adoption is my top priority. At Moore Law for Children, I am learning about Education law, and I strongly value the rights of our children. I am honored to assist each one of our clients.
