About our Logo

Our logo "Parent Embracing Child" reflects a parent protectively embracing their child, while the child reaches up to the parent for love and support.  The colours represent core colours of life; green representing growth and blue representing strength as in the mighty ocean or vast sky.  Circles play a big part in family, parenting, adoption and life itself.  Together, the colours and circles are intended to be gender neutral as simply parent and child.
