My sister Lori Ingber is not only an amazing mother of four, she’s made helping other mothers and fathers create their families her life’s work. When my husband and I wanted to adopt here in the U.S., we found a wonderful adoption agency but a seemingly endless wait. As time went by, we nearly lost hope of finding a baby of our own. Lori jumped in to help. She followed a lead about an agency in the South with more available children than adoptive parents. Shocked at the possibility and afraid to get our hopes up, my husband and I traveled to meet with the new agency. The story was, in fact, true. We were quickly matched to both our daughter and our son, adopting them as infants within six weeks of each other. Remarkably, my original adoption agency in the northeast had no way of knowing about the agency in the southeast who had waiting children and not enough adoptive parents. Full of the passion and purpose I so admire in my sister, Lori decided she was not content to help only me. She knew that we were one family among many navigating the difficulties of adoption and was haunted by children waiting for their forever families. She set out to make a difference for us all. She spent three years developing a patent-pending database for domestic adoption agencies that allows them to connect with each other confidentially, securely and, most importantly, easily. Today, the adoption agency helping me could have immediately found that my children were waiting for me several states away with a few simple clicks of the mouse. Her company, Parent Match, is being quickly embraced by adoption agencies all around the country, creating a truly national network they’ve never had before. But most importantly, because of Lori, adoption agencies have a powerful new tool to find those perfect matches between parents and child, just as she did for me.
