Tami Hedrick, the Lansing Office Manager, has been working at the adoption agency in Lansing since 1999. Tami handles a variety of tasks in the Lansing office and is our ‘go to’ person for questions about the online adoption portal. She is also the creative mind behind AAI’s Facebook page and posts regularly to spread the word about adoption events, and to share adoption process information.
Tami and Kris enjoy getting out to meet people in the Lansing area and hosted a table for Delta Community’s Halloween event earlier in October. The event drew many children and families who were able to learn more about adoption by stopping at their table to talk. Their efforts are making an impact to raise awareness in the communities surrounding the Lansing area.
