Lots of News!

There are lots of things going on right now with Davis County LDSFS. Robin has moved to Atlanta from the Layton Agency, and James has taken her place. We are excited to have him aboard! He comes to us from the American Fork agency and brings with him lots of experience and great ideas. We also have some other changes with FSA that I will let a letter from John Hill explain.

Dear Adoptive Couples:

A New Caseworker

I came to the Centerville office about 3 months ago and have recently
been assigned to assist with the Davis County Family Supporting Adoption
(FSA). Prior to serving in Centerville, I was a full time counselor for 4
½ years in the Sandy office.
But… before my time in the Sandy
office, I was the full time adoption caseworker for the Farmington office for
over 6 years. Thus, I know many of the past adoptive couples in the
Centerville and Layton areas and I am so pleased to be back and involved with
adoption once again.

Good-bye to Scott and Natalie Bradford… we will miss

I find that the first business item that needs to be considered is
saying good-bye to the outgoing co-chairs for the FSA Davis County, Scott and
Natalie Bradford. They have given many years of service not only as the
local FSA co-chairs for Davis County, but also as board members on the FSA
national board. These years of service represent their love and dedication
to adoption and willingness to help others as they apply for and learn about the
world of adoptions. What can you say or what can you do to pay
tribute to such a couple? Thank you Scott and Natalie. Well

Welcome to Cal and Gena Taylor… our new Co-Chair

After my discussions with Robin Williams and Kevin Broderick the
decision was made to ask Cal and Gena to be our new co-chairs for the FSA Davis
County. We feel confidence in their desire to serve and help others in the
adoption process. Personally, I am impressed with their past
experience serving on the FSA board in the Ogden office, including assisting in
creating a float for the July 24th parade and their energy for the future.
Welcome aboard Cal and Gena.

Everyone Is Invited to FSA board meetings

May I invite any and all adoptive couple to attend our David County FSA
board meetings. We will only benefit from your service as we prepare
socials, plan high school adoption presentations, maintain our blog site, and
organize other adoption related activities. Contact Cal & Gena Taylor
to learn when the next meeting will be held.

Lastly, let me say how much I enjoyed our recent FSA conference.
Despite my many years working in adoptions, I learned new information and was
impressed with the leadership demonstrated by the national FSA
Thank You
John Hill

We had our first board meeting with Cal and Gena heading things up last night and it went exceptionally well. If you are at all interested in getting involved please come to our next meeting on Sept. 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the Layton agency. We would love to have everyone who is interested in supporting adoption come! There is lots of work to be done and we could use any willing hands. Plus we're super fun. So come and get involved! We'd love to have you!!!
