For my kids, being adopted is just part of who they are. I think because they’ve grown up having an open adoption and knowing their birth family, they don’t know anything different, but they appreciate having that connection and being able to see first hand – for my son where his freckles come from, or for my daughter where her athletic ability came from and things like that. So they don’t have anything to compare it to, but they definitely appreciate having that relationship and that connection to not only their birth mom but also their birth siblings.

Adoption Expert

Guylaine has both personal and professional experience with open adoption, which gives her a very unique perspective on the topic. She and her husband are the parents of two children (young adults), whom they adopted as infants and have maintained an open adoption with their birthmother for over 20 years. Her children have the same birthmother, which is more common that one would think! This past year added to her realm of adoption experience, when her daughter gave birth to, and placed a baby for adoption. 

Guylaine was born and raised in California, and is the youngest of four siblings. She has always been the type of person to get involved and volunteer, from being a class officer in middle school and high school to serving on Boards of Directors for her children’s schools, her church, Resolve (an infertility and adoption educational organization) and other community organizations. When she is not working at her position as Southern California Branch Co-Director/Home Study Supervisor/Adoption Coordinator at the Independent Adoption Center (IAC) she enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling, camping, playing golf,and dancing.
