Business Manager, A. A. S. 

Sam is a mom through adoption of three children. 

February 2013 was my family's first experience with AAU. My husband and I decided we would like more information regarding adoption and the adoption process. We jumped in with both feet and our whole hearts!  Coleen and the AAU staff held our hand each step of the way. Our oldest son was born that November! We would begin the adoption journey a few more times after that, each time similar, but completely different and unique! We have been forever blessed through adoption and our birth families! We have 3 kiddos, 2 sons and a daughter, and we live in South Dakota!

During one of the many talks with Coleen and Jennie I jokingly said “are you hiring?” I thought it would be amazing to be a part of the AAU team! Fast forward a few years later and here I am today, enjoying every moment and being amazed by the love, support, and gift that the adoption journey entails! Adoption means love to me and our family! And I feel extra blessed to have adoption as part of my home life and now work life!
