Carol ShepherdDirector, Adoption Consultant
My name is Carol Shepherd, and I adopted our son as a newborn after going through 12 years of infertility. Now, 23 years later, I am Director at Everlasting Adoptions.
Shortly after adopting our son, I started to feel a calling towards adoption. My career as a Human Resource Manager in Corporate America came to an end, and I entered into what I now know is my purpose and passion in life -- building families through the miracle of adoption.
My background is in psychology, human relations and social services. I am an active member in several adoption advocacy support groups, I conduct adoption seminars, and I volunteer at local church ministries. Working with birthmothers and adoptive parents throughout the US, allows me to utilize the skills that I have been blessed with to serve others. I come to work every day not as a staff member coming to a job from 9 to 5, but as a person who is dedicated and devoted, totally enjoying what I do, 24/7. I feel very blessed to have found my purpose.
Sheila NeumanAdoptive Parent Consultant
As an Adoptive Parent Coordinator, I have the rare opportunity of providing support to adoptive families as they pursue their dream of growing their family through adoption. I have a great deal of respect for both the birth parents and adoptive families that I work with, and appreciate them for allowing me to be a part of such a personal and emotional experience. Each day I am more and more amazed by the miracle of adoption, and have found so much joy in working with such wonderful people. I am honored to be involved in a process that is truly amazing, where new families are created everyday. It's not very often that you have the opportunity to watch a family grow from start to finish, but in my career, I can do just that. My experiences have been incredible, and I look forward to helping more couples and individuals find happiness through adoption.
