Adoption Learner, Interviewer, Educator, Author, Coach

Lori began writing about and researching myriad perspectives on adoption when her children were toddlers. She began exploring and writing about adoption in 2007, and later wrote The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption with her daughter's birth mom, published in 2013.

Lori continues to learn from a diverse set of adoption viewpoints through her podcast, Adoption: The Long View. Lori's daughter and son are now young adults, and Lori is passionate about passing on to newer adoptive parents all she wished she'd known earlier.

Lori writes essays articles regularly at LavenderLuz.com. Her latest book, Adoption Unfiltered, will be published by Rowman & Littlefirled in hardcover in the fall of 2023. It is co-authored by adoptee Sara Easterly and birth mom Kelsey Vander Vliet Ranyard. Their video series exploring the three + sides of adoption can be found on YouTube @AdoptionUnfiltered.
