Hi, we are The Journagan Family,
Khimm’s adoption journey started many years ago, when her 13-year-old God Daughter came to live with her. Fast forward 20 years... John and Khimm made a life changing decision to adopt their next child through an adoption law office in 2006.
Our lives were filled with joy when our handsome baby boy was born and placed in our loving arms. Each day we thank God for this incredible young man, who has graced our life with happiness, along with his selfless birth parents that gave us this gift of love.
Khimm’s message to you
Adopting a child it can be a very emotional experience, overwhelming, frightening and very rewarding, all at the same time. After my son’s adoption I made a promise to myself that I would do everything I could to help other adoptive families in need by sharing my experiences.
When Josh was 6 months old I was lucky to have that dream come true when the lawyer that helped us with our son’s adoption asked me to help with prospective adoptive parents. I never imagined it would change my life as much as it has.
Over the years, I have helped hundreds of families with their adoption journey. I am blessed to have stayed close to many of those families and had the privileged to watch their children grow.
This is a very exciting time for us! After 12 ½ years with the adoption lawyer I have decided to branch out on my own. I really want to be able to help guide every family with their adoption journey no matter what.
I will help you through your adoption journey from the very beginning steps of the adoption process, along with walking you through your first with prospective birth mothers through the process of discovering the perfect family for your child. Adoption is not a 9 to 5, Monday through Friday industry, I will be available to talk with you after hours and on weekends.
Hi, we are The Barry Family,
I am the adoption coordinator and have been in the adoption industry since early 2009.
I began working part time which eventually led me to a full time position in my dream job and allowed me to complete my family.
My husband and I adopted our son, Austin. His birth mother had been a long time friend of mine when she asked me to adopt the child she was carrying. We were overjoyed . Austin is the best thing that a has ever happened to us. He brings so much joy and happiness to our family and friends lives.
I work with our adoptive parents and our birth families from the matching process all the way to the finalization of their adoption.
I really love what I do, and I enjoy helping families build their family through adoption.
Hi, I have been blessed with five beautiful grandchildren, two of them happen to be adopted.
When my daughter was starting her adoption journey I was lucky enough to be a large part of that journey with her. Once she started working in the adoption industry I was able to see her passion and wanted to be a part of such a rewarding experience.
With my Public Relations and Marketing career that spans over 35 years both in the public and private sectors I believe that I can help J & J Adoptions with our Expectant Parent Outreach. Throughout the years I have created and managed numerous Public Relations, Community Relations, Media Relations & Marketing campaigns. I also enjoy volunteering my Public Relations and Marketing skills to the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge. I am looking forward to helping families grow with the gift of adoption.
Let the staff at J & J Adoptions help you make an informed decision on an adoption plan.
