Adoption RI and our entire community were deeply saddened by the loss earlier this year of Judy McSoley, long-time Adoption Rhode Island Director of Development and Community Relations, and our own Angel in Adoption. Judy was the driving force behind so many of our programs including the Heart Gallery. She was the heart and soul of our Mom’s Group and she brought countless partners and friends into our Adoption Rhode Island family to work together with us on behalf of the children and families she loved. It was impossible to say no to Judy or to not be inspired by her passion and devotion. Judy was ready and eager to speak whenever and wherever she could about the beautiful children so close to her heart waiting for the love of a family. Her work reached into every facet of what we do and the impact of her work will continue to touch lives each day as we go forward.
