Seeing children with no hope of permanency touched her. While working in the public school system, Ms. Zindulka has had the opportunity to work with many domestically and internationally adopted children. She and her husband are the proud parents of three children, two of whom were adopted domestically. She brings this unique expertise and understanding of the adoption roller coaster ride to her work. After adopting, she left the educational field to pursue her passion to help people attain their dreams of completing their forever family through adoption.
