Why Adoption Perspectives Is The Match For You
A perfect match does not come from identical opinions or similar experiences. A real, honest match comes from challenging each other, learning from each other, valuing experiences and sharing life. This match at Adoption Perspectives, LLC is genuinely committed to you—personal or professional—so that we may strengthen each other.
Adoption Perspectives, LLC has just officially been announced to the public, and we could not be more excited to start this journey of working with those touched personally or professionally by adoption/foster care. We are Patricia Jones and Marcella Moslow, co- founders of Adoption Perspectives, LLC. Patricia is an adoptive mom, a psychotherapy private practitioner and a consultant in the Western New York Community. Marcella is an adoptee and trauma and play therapist in Buffalo, New York.
We were inspired to join together to bring our education and consulting services to those impacted by adoption and foster care, recognizing the need for increased understanding and compassion in this area. Our passion for working with adoptive and foster families brought us together, and after many months of work and planning, our dream to bring Adoption Perspectives, LLC to the community has finally been realized!
Those who know both of us well will tell you that we really can’t be more different from one another. Along our journey to create Adoption Perspectives LLC, we became ever more aware of those differences. Patricia is an optimist to a fault; Marcella much more of a realist. Patricia, a seasoned psychotherapy professional with many years of experience; Marcella, a young professional trained in the latest and most effective research-based practices. Patricia, white; Marcella, a woman of color. Patricia, an adoptive parent; Marcella an adoptee. Patricia drives a bright yellow vehicle; Marcella’s car is black. Patricia sees things in a whole picture sort of way; Marcella is organized and detailed oriented. You get the point.
Yet, when we think of one another, and what brought us together, the thing we find more striking than our differences is our shared passion about working with adoptive/foster families. We are equally persistent and strong in our views, equally enthusiastic to consult and educate, equally moved by the stories we hear, equally driven and dedicated to making a difference in the lives of adoptive/foster families. And, now that it’s official, we are equally and ever grateful for the opportunity to begin offering our services to you (Educational Workshops, Professional Training, and Consulting), acknowledging our different perspectives and knowing that they only make us stronger as we take on this journey together.
