“Not all heroes wear capes, but every person I’ve met and the group of MTOA collectively are my heroes.  Individually and as a group, they are profoundly impacting, in a positive way, the world around them. It’s a joy and an honor to be able to meet with these amazing heroes.”

- Non-profit entrepreneur for trauma informed care


“Coming to MTOA for the last couple of years has been a great opportunity to network with other agency representatives and adoptive families.  It is great to sit in a room with other people who “get it” each month. Hearing their stories has made me a better mom.”

- Foster and adoptive mom


“It can be easy to believe that no one understands your God-given passions, and that is such an isolating lie to believe. MTOA meetings are a regular reminder that God is at work all over our community and through all different types of people.  Their stories constantly inspire me to keep learning and growing and trusting God for big things.”

- Orphan advocate


“MTOA meetings have a way of encouraging and re-energizing your spirit that’s hard to put into words. Let’s just say this: I never miss a meeting!”

- Adoption communications professional


“Meeting here reminds me that I’m not alone in my corner of the world. Orphan care can feel overwhelming and impossible, so it’s amazing to see what is being done in our community that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.”
