Support Ethica – Fundraising Campaign

Many people don’t realize that Ethica is primarily a volunteer effort. Most of the people working for Ethica do not get paid and in fact pay for much of Ethica’s expenses out of their own pockets. Ethica is in a unique position of standing in the middle – representing birth families, children and adoptive families.
