Experience. Understanding. Results.
Ruby’s List is designed to help you find information and adoption professionals who focus on love as the first foundation of family.
Our founder, Greg, learned many painful lessons while adopting his daughter, Ruby. This site is intended to help you steer clear of some of the roadblocks he encountered so that you can work with professional individuals who understand the love and advantages you can give a child.
