Description

As the mother to two adopted daughters, Attorney Sharon Ramage understands the challenges that parents and children face in these situations, as well as the joys that come with building family bonds that will stand the test of time.

They know that parents who adopt children make many sacrifices, and they want to make sure their children will have the tools they need to succeed in life. In recognition of this, they have established a scholarship program that provides assistance to children who have been adopted.
