All Kids Deserve Families

Sarah Boone CEO of Extraordinary Families

"With our families, what we ask of them is to love and care and attach to a child while simultaneously preparing for the fact that the child may be reunified with their birth parents. For a parent to do that, is nothing less than extraordinary." - Sarah Boone
