A Little Something Extra…

Lagniappe, pronounced  lan-yap is a word used in New Orleans that means a little bit more.  With so much information on adoption we are always coming across more that we want to share with you!  This page is dedicated to the extra information that does not fit into the other pages of our site.  It’s a growing page so we hope you visit often to see the new information we are sharing!

What can we say, we are a New Orleans based agency :)!

If you didn’t find what you were looking on our main pages. We hope you find it here.
