Erins' Favorite Things 2021


During December 2021, we embraced the holiday season and ran a series called Erins' Favorite Things on social media to share some highlights from our own adoption-related toolkits (get it? Erin Nasmyth, Executive Director and Erin Bost, Operations Manager? "Erins" [insert eye roll here]). While not quite Oprah status, we do often receive requests for recommendations of additional resources for our community to use in their homes to continue to foster support for their families. Feel free to bookmark and/or share your own with us.
