Our Staff


Hello, I’m Lore Carvalho and proudly serve as the Director of Adoption Angels.   With over 18 years of adoption experience, my career is driven by a passion for assisting birth mothers and enriching the lives of our adoptive parents. I founded Adoption Angels in 2003 with the goal of bringing as many families together through adoption as possible.  I have gathered a dedicated and gifted staff that shares my belief that by helping others, we may reach our steadfast objectives.  I have a loving family including my supportive husband, and two talented daughters one of whom is also a staff-member at Adoption Angels.  I’m involved with every aspect of the adoption process and cherish the opportunity to satisfy any of our client-family member’s needs.

Hi, I’m Colleen Campbell Washington and I have been a social worker since 2003 and have been fortunate enough to have been on staff here at Adoption Angels since 2005. I enjoy the opportunity to counsel birthmothers through an adoption plan. I have seen what a thoughtful process this can be and what a phenomenal impact adoption can have on both adoptive parents and birth parents. As a recent mother I empathize with the difficult decisions that birthparents face and assure them that they are making people’s dreams come true.

Adoption Angels San AntonioHi, my name is Miriam Marin, and I am a caseworker with Adoption Angels. I am so grateful, honored, and blessed to be working at Adoption Angels. I received my Bachelors in Sociology with a Minor in Women and Gender Studies at UTSA. I am currently working on my Masters in Counseling through Webster’s University.
I have 2 years of experience in working with families and children, which will facilitate my ability to relate to familial dynamics. I want to thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a loving, selfless choice in your life.    


Hi, I’m Brittany Carvalho-Renner and I am the Client Relations and Marketing Specialist here at Adoption Angels. I am dedicated to optimizing the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising and are constantly developing innovative outreach programs for birth parents and adoptive families. I also keep close contact with our clients to unsure they are updated throughout the adoption process. I studied Mass Communications at Texas State University where I focused on Advertising, PR and Graphic Design, fields that have proven to be invaluable to the work I do here. I believe family is the greatest blessing in life. Being a part of the Adoption Angels family and having the opportunity to work alongside my mother has been an indescribable experience for which I am exceptionally grateful. I hope that you too will become a part of the Adoption Angels family.

Hi, I'm Laura Torres and I am the office manager at Adoption Angels. I have a history of administrative employment through various non-profit organizations. I am fluent in Spanish which has allowed me the opportunity to work closely with our Spanish speaking clientele. I have truly enjoyed this opportunity to better understand the adoption process and the emotions involved on the part of birth parents. One of my favorite aspects of this job is getting to witness the joy experienced by our adoptive parents after they have received a placement. Being a mother of three is the greatest joy in my life so helping make families is work I can truly be proud of. I am available to assist all clients through their adoption journeys.
