Starks Family

The Stark Family: Our Adoption Story

"We had a unique opportunity to adopt a baby from out of state in a very short time frame. From our first meeting with Grace, we felt taken care of and knew we were in the right hands. Our law team work tirelessly to ensure our adoption went as smoothly as possible! The complexity of our adoption was handled with care and thoughtfulness. Grace was so motivated in making us a family of three, she even worked during her own maternity leave! Grace celebrated with us at the courthouse for the finalization of our adoption in July. We are beyond grateful to the Foley Peden & Wisco team for the efficiency and dedication to our case."
