Family Shows Up

in so Many Beautiful Ways!

Many families or individuals who are interested in adoption or foster care and want to know more before they make a decision. 

The specialized information, experience, and resources that I have accumulated over the years has helped many others and is likely to help you far beyond any reasonable fee, benefiting you for years to come.


Please contact us to set up an Adoption Consultation if . . .


You would like to set up a consultation session to learn more about the types of adoption available, foster care options, the agencies in the area, how to prepare for adoption and what to expect in the process. You may scroll down below to the form for this. 

I can also offer  . . .


1) Individualized consultation–This is valuable if you have questions and are beginning the adoption process or foster care options and information. $150 and typically about an hour unless we both decide you need more time than that. 

          2) Private adoption training– This is required for adopting a child in either international and domestic settings. This is known as Colorado Adoption Core Training, and we are a more convenient alternative than driving back and forth from Denver, hotel expenses, etc.  No need for a dog-sitter!  


                  3) Home studies which are required for adoption in Colorado. $120 an hour.

Regarding domestic and international homestudies, birthparent counseling and postplacement services, Liv has established working relationships with following child placement agencies:


A Love Beyond Borders


Adoption for All Children


Adoption Choices of Colorado



Liv is always willing to partner with other agencies, if you have already established a relationship.

The easiest way for us to contact you is to fill out the simple form at the bottom of this page first. 


Following the form submission, we will be in touch with you shortly to talk more about your adoption questions!
