Carol Biddle, COO

For three decades Gail has been a thought leader and myth buster in adoption, proving that all children can achieve permanent families. She has inspired the child welfare field, led practice changes, developed and driven legislative reforms, and inspired her peers and policy makers to make permanency in a family the first priority for children and youth. There is a family for every child and Gail continues to educate and lead on how that can and must happen across the country.
