My name is Meredith Rose and I am the Director of Open Arms Adoption Network. Working with the Open Arms team, JFCS and with our expectant, birth and adoptive families is an honor and pleasure that I feel grateful for each day. I am the mother of two. My first child joined our family through birth and my second child joined our family through adoption. We have an open adoption with my daughter’s birth family and we are all pleased to be connected in a relationship that our daughter values so much. I have been working with families in the field of social work for over 20 years and happily found my place in Open Arms Adoption in 1996. I hold an MSW and an MPH in Maternal and Child Health from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
