March is Women’s History Month. This month honors and celebrates the contributions of women throughout American history.
Spence-Chapin is proud to highlight the stories of the many women that have shaped and created the Spence-Chapin family—from our founders, to our international partners, to the many incredible women connected through adoption.
Women have paved the way for modern adoption and Spence-Chapin is indebted to these women. In honor of Women’s History Month, we are sharing our historic timeline of the inspiring women of Spence-Chapin. These women have succeeded in creating thousands of families over the last century.
“Throughout our Nation’s history, American women have led movements for social and economic justice, made groundbreaking scientific discoveries, enriched our culture with stunning works of art and literature, and charted bold directions in our foreign policy.”
Jacqui adopted a beautiful baby girl named Carina through Spence-Chapin in August 2018. When I asked Jacqui why she chose to work with Spence-Chapin, she said that she was first introduced to Spence-Chapin as a birth parent seeking counseling and support many years ago.
In honor of International Women’s Day, the Spence-Chapin team has been meditating over the powerful words of remarkable women who have offered wisdom and motivation through their voices and personal life stories.
