Throughout her life, Carol Measom has never been far from DePelchin Children's Center.Coincidentally, she has always lived nearby, but her ties to the agency run deeper than mere physical proximity.

In 1963, Carol's birth mother went to live at the Florence Crittenton Center, a residential care facility for young women and girls in crisis pregnancies.The Crittenton Center, then an affiliate of DePelchin, provided a home-like, nurturing environment focused on helping young mothers make informed life choices and plans for themselves and their babies.
Knowing that she was unable to successfully parent her child, the young birth mother pro-actively made an adoption plan for her baby.Through DePelchin's Adoption Program, Carol was placed with a permanent family only two months after her birth.The couple who adopted Carol, Esther and Melvin Braun, had also adopted an infant son, Kenny, four years earlier.
...
Carol was adopted through DePelchin as an infant.She is now a volunteer who speaks out about the benefits of adoption.
"Our parents did a fine job of letting us know that adoption is a wonderful thing and that it is something to be proud of,"recalls Carol."My brother and I thought we were special because we knew that our parents chose us and wanted us.As a child, I bragged about being adopted!"
As a happy and successful adult, Carol is still bragging about being adopted.She shares her story with others in hopes that more people will consider providing a permanent home for children in need.Her brother Kenny and his wife Lori have two adopted children, and Carol and her husband Allan also plan to adopt one day.
In addition to raising awareness about adoption, Carol's desire to promote DePelchin motivates her to help in other ways.She speaks to groups about the benefits of adoption and relays her own family's personal experiences.She also serves on DePelchin's Fund Development Committee to help generate funds for the agency's programs and services.As a personal clothier at Tom James Clothing Company, Carol appeals to her clients each year on behalf of DePelchin and has raised more than $12,000 in the last two years.
Even if Carol someday finds herself living miles from DePelchin's physical site, she says the agency will always be close to her heart."I believe in adoption and in the good work DePelchin does,"says Carol."That's something that will always be with me."
