Suzanne’s first two North Carolina adoption cases were close to her heart. Her first case was the adoption of her own children, who she raised from birth, through step-parent adoption following the legalization of same sex marriage. Her second adoption was a pro bono case for a close family friend to adopt a child she had cared for since birth. Since those early cases, Suzanne has maintained a passion for adoption.
