Leila serves as the Board Chair of a local charity, Lilliput Children’s Services. Leila’s experience in representing families in Los Angeles in completing their adoptions gave her a sense of the impact the adoption of a child can have on so many people, including the children. That is what drew Leila to Lilliput’s mission of finding a permanent home for children from the moment they first enter the foster care system. Leila dedicates her time and energy to each of Lilliput’s fundraising events to ensure that Lilliput has the funds necessary for its kinship program, which focuses on placing foster children with family members. Now that Leila has a daughter of her own, she understands even more the importance of family in each child’s life.
