Joan Oas family

As an adoptive mother to two grown daughters, Joan knows first-hand what is involved in the process of bringing together a birthmother and an adoptive family.

She is married and prior to coming to Lifetime, she and her husband owned a bed & breakfast. Some of Joan’s interests include sewing, knitting, decorating, and meeting in weekly small group Bible studies.

When asked about Joan, another Lifetime staffer had these words of praise to share: “She is calm in the midst of the storm! She has a humble spirit and is a pleasure to work with.” Another shares “Joan always makes a work day easier at Lifetime. Her knowledge, experience, and service shouldn’t go without a big ‘thank you!’”
