Good-bye from Valeria...

It brings me great sadness to announce my leave with Adoption Options. The past four years with AO have been wonderful and I will truly miss both the Calgary and Edmonton team, but also the birthparents and adoptive families I have had the pleasure to work with!

I am so grateful to Sheryl Proulx, who believed in me during my practicum and offered me a position with AO in 2012. I feel privileged to have worked with such a fantastic team and truly believe that Adoption Options helped build the foundation of my social work practice and has made me the social worker I am today.

Thank you, Sheryl and Liz for all that you do for Adoption Options and the support you have provided me throughout the years. Thank you to the rest of the Adoption Options team, for your input, guidance, and the joy/laughter you brought into my life. Lastly, thank you to all of the amazing adoptive families and birthparents I had the opportunity to work closely with. You are why we are here today.

Thank you for the wonderful memories. I will forever treasure them and hold them dear to my heart.
