We Are Growing
2009 was a banner year for the Lane Count Heart Gallery, now called A Family For Every Child. Our call volume, web traffic, and interest in adoption grew far faster than we had expected. During 2009, we had a total of 4104 website adoption inquiries (an average of 342 a month), and probably twice to three times that in phone and in-person inquiries. There were 2819 Home Study submissions in 2009.
Similarly, the merger of the A Family For Every Child website with the Northwest Heart Gallery contributed to spectacular interest and web traffic growth during 2011. We grew so much we had to automate several home study submission processes and lost track of the number of submissions. We regularly reach out to over 7000 families who have inquired about adopting.
