I wanted to pop in and introduce myself as the new Adoption Guru here at Life Tips. My name is Crystal, and I am the mom of five terrific kids (IMHO). Three of my children are adopted (though I can’t remember which ones *grin*), through both private and foster child adoption. My husband and I were foster parents for several years, and I am now a Recruitment Ambassador for a foster care/ public adoption agency in our community.

I am not new to writing about adoption and foster care. I spent several months as a feature writer for the adoption section at, as well as writing articles for Associated Content and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children). Adoption is my passion and I have researched extensively on the topic. I firmly believe that every child deserves a forever family, and consider it a privilege to work in any way I can to ensure that as many children find homes as possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask by leaving your question as a comment in one of the tips below. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You will be able to find my response in the Reader Questions and Answers section that will appear to the left along with the other topics currently listed. I also welcome your feedback and would love to hear from you!
