About Our Executive Director

Dawn Davenport is a leading expert in adoption, fostering, and infertility, and the host of the top-rated radio show on adoption and infertility in the US—Creating a Family: Talk about Adoption and Infertility. She is the Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization.

Dawn is a frequent speaker at conferences, including keynote addresses. She speaks on a variety of topics including post adoption support, transitioning from infertility to adoption, training for foster parents, infertility nurse education, etc.

Creating a Family has won awards for excellence from both the US Department of Health and Human Services and the Congressional Coalition on Adoption. The radio show won the International Infertility in the Media award, which involved a trip to Rome to receive the award (YAY!).
