Episode Date
Episode 16: Interview with Hannah Eloge with @kindredand.co
48:03
Hannah lives in Chicago, but she is a desert girl at heart, with her husband, twin girls, Ezra + Olive.  She loves queso dip a little too much. A photographer, designer, and creative, Hannah is passionate about adoption and through her own adoption process, she found her "people".  After 10 years in non-profit marketing & design, she started Kindred + Co to form a community and give others something she desperately wishes she had going through the adoption process. Kindred + Co. is a brave adoption community that lifts up all voices in the adoption triad. Kindred believes that sharing stories is a powerful way to show both the beauty and the brokenness of adoption. We believe that we can learn from each other’s experiences and handle each other's stories with care.
 
Kindred + Co. creates modern, photo focused profile books that have a lot of heart. Our custom profile books and profile book templates help families and hopeful adoptive parents tell their story in a way that connects with expectant moms considering adoption for their child. Kindred + Co. was the first profile book provider to have a birth mom on their team that coaches clients on how to write the difficult hello letter to expectant parents. Our books are to sit knee to knee with expectant moms considering adoption - talking with them, not at them.
