I have been involved with adoption searches since I began my own search for my sister in 1994.  Though I was unsuccessful in the quest to find my sister, I never quit searching for her until there was proof that I wouldn't be able to locate her since it was a black market adoption.  (To read my personal story click here).  In the course of searching for my sister I became intrigued with the entire process of how one goes about searching and locating lost loved ones.  It wasn't long before family members and friends asked me if I would help them with their own searches and reunions.  I thought if I couldn't find my sister that I could at least help others find their loved ones.  I became quite proficient in the search process and was successful at reuniting many families.  While it is difficult to accept that I will not find my sister, the process of searching for her has led me on a new path in life and helped me discover both a skill-set and a passion for searching and locating family members.  Because of my passion for this process and my ability to locate and reunite many individuals, I decided to get certified as an Arizona Confidential Intermediary (CI).  This certification allows me to have to assist in reuniting individuals involved in the adoption process in Arizona.  I treat each case as if it was personally mine - and I have never had a case as difficult as my own.
