The final piece to this new agency puzzle was just placed and as often seems to happen, I had just been wondering about this piece this morning.
An Executive Director has been hired!!!
In my mind this was a huge part of the deal. I knew interviewing had been taking place and there were several very qualified candidates. However, as part of the email sharing this exciting information, the new Executive Director included a letter introducing herself. And the final sentence in the final paragraph convinced me that she is the one.
The whole letter was well written. She articulated herself, her experience, her expectations and anticipation over the road ahead quite clearly. But when S ended her letter with the sentence below, I was comforted with the reassurance that,
We. Are. In. Good. Hands.
I am proud to be a part of the future-development of this agency, and I am committed to making this an agency for the children, with their needs being of the highest priority, as we work hard to unite them with their destined families.
