Meet the Team

Kimberley Lauman

Co-Executive Director

Kimberley graduated from Washington State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2012. She has worked, primarily, as an adoption worker and behavior modification specialist. It was through her work as an adoption worker that her passion to change the narrative of children in care was developed. Kimberley has dedicated her life to helping children beat the odds and maintain and/or find their hope. She became a foster parent in 2013 when a child she mentored asked her to consider doing so. Her foster child has since aged out, and Kimberley continues to be actively involved in their life. Kimberley is dedicated to changing the narrative of the children in care.
She loves serving and representing families and bringing growing up families together.
Kimberley lives in Vancouver, Washington with her son, three cats and golden retriever lab mix.
Kimberley enjoys horseback riding, with her son, baking and decorating cakes, gardening, reading, and experiencing life with her children. “One of the greatest gifts we can receive, as adults, is the invitation to experience the world as children see it.”

Kimlyn Esser

Co-Executive Director

Kimlyn graduated from Northwest Christian University in 2011 with a Masters in Business Administration. She left the for-profit business world to manage a non-profit adoption agency and
discovered her passion. Since being introduced to the adoption world she has redirected her career path and dedicated her life to changing the outcomes for children in foster care through adoption, and committed support for children who age out of the foster care system without being adopted. In her spare time she spends time with her extended family and volunteering with other non-profit organizations. She currently resides in the Springfield area with her husband Bill, her dad John, Bubba
the dogger, and Clarence kitty.
