"Reflections" typically comes out at the end of each month but we know how busy December is so we thought we would send this issue out a little early. We hope you are able to take advantage of some of the special offers that we have this month and we will go back to our regular schedule in 2022. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
In this month's "Reflections":
We are Matt, Shae and Karsten Mortimer. Karsten turned 1 in August! We live outside of Tuttle, OK. Matt works as an IT Business Analyst, Shae works in marketing and has a graphic design company, and Karsten loves playing with her friends at the in-home daycare she attends.
December is a busy month so we want to make sure you are aware of our special hours on a few days as we will be closed for various events. Regular office hours on all other days are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Thursday and 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Friday.
Our office will be closed for the Christmas break from December 24-January 2 so please make sure any end of year donations are postmarked no later than December 31st to be counted as a charitable gift for 2021. Of course, you can also donate online to ensure that your gift is counted for this year.
As always, our 24 hour pregnancy help line for expectant mothers is available at (405) 397-3140

Bethany joined DPA in October 2021 as our Remote Adoption Specialist out of Tulsa. Bethany is passionate about serving people and has felt a calling to work in adoption for many years and is so grateful to work for an organization that that allows her to share the Word of God with those they serve.
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."

Coffee Talk With DQ - Embryo Adoption
Last month, David sat down with DPA Adoptive Parent Supervisor Catherine Howe to discuss our new embryo adoption program. It was a fascinating look at a new option for people who have pursued in vitro fertilization or are interested in alternatives to traditional adoption.
