The Rev. Thomas Quijada-Discavage

Board Vice President

With a passion for the gift of helping to create family I take on my second stint as a member of the board of HFS with joy.  At the invitation of the bishop and with the approval of the board I hope to share my gifts and talents for the benefit of this great organization with its own rich history.

Adoption has impacted my own life in a very real way.  After a nearly 9-year struggle, some 55 years ago, my parents were finally able to adopt me into their life and love and I am richly blessed by their desire.

I can only hope that in some way I might, through my leadership as part of the HFS board, be able to assist families like my own to realize their dreams of being a family and sharing back with the wider community lives filled with creativity, and hope, and vitality.
