I contacted Cathy with some questions about foster care/adoption. I expected to make an appointment, but Cathy answered all my questions over the phone, all for free.

Greater Hopes helped me in ways that I didn’t think an adoption agency could. I felt supported and loved, and they were always there when I needed them. They have a real love for how birth families can heal!
