Special Guest: Rebecca Utley, Director of Community Relations for Hope Cottage Pregnancy and Adoption Center. Topic: The Rewards of Adoption from a Parent and Child perspectives. Hope Cottage Pregnancy and Adoption Center is the oldest non-sectarian, nonprofit, United Way-affiliated adoption center in Dallas. It began in 1918 with the vision of one woman, Emma Wylie Ballard, who recognized a need to provide care for Dallas's unwanted children. Since illegitimacy had such a stigma, babies were literally being abandoned in the streets. She opened a small home to accept the babies, naming it Hope Cottage, and hired women to care for them. It is from these humble roots that the Center began to grow and flourish, subsequently becoming an adoption agency, placing children in homes, ensuring their futures and strengthening the Dallas community. Along the way, Hope Cottage has passed many significant milestones. From establishing an International Adoption Program to facilitate the adoption of children from Romania, China, India, Guatemala and El Salvador; Foster-to-Adoption program; Domestic Adoption Program – Embryo Adoption; to opening a Family Counseling and Education Center for new parents and post adoption families. In my book From My Mama’s Kitchen –“food for the soul, recipes for living,” I wrote about a treasure trove – “Motherly Love.” It is ageless, it is universal, it transcends cultures, and most importantly, it is unconditional. Whether you live in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, or in the Americas, all moms have the same desire to share one thing with their children – to provide food for the soul, recipes for living. Hope Cottage known for their compassionate dedication and nurturing professionalism in family well-being, has gained a national reputation for excellence.
