Hi, I’m Karin MacDonald, and this is my first year as President of the Adoptive Families Association. My husband Brendan and I have a gorgeous five-year-old son, who we brought home from the Philippines in 2013. We are now officially waiting to bring home a little brother or sister.
This is my second year on the committee, and I am very excited about the helping with the role that the AFA plays in supporting families in the adoption and permanent care community in Canberra and region. I hope to bring my experience in working in government to getting better communication for our families – both those waiting, and those already home.
