Robin Sizemore, BS, Founder and Executive Director
Robin Sizemore, Executive Director of Hopscotch Adoptions Inc, was recognized in 2012 by the Winston-Salem Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc as a person who has “Transform Lives and Impacted the Community”. Among five other recipients, Robin Sizemore, was recognized in the area of “International Awareness” for her work and advocacy of children through international adoption and aid. Robin was also the recipient of the “Angels in Adoption” award in 2008, in recognition of her service to children since 1995.
She is an adoptive mother and has been an adoption professional since 1995. In addition to placing children in forever families, Robin has been politically involved in issues of child welfare: she has brought educational opportunities to a variety of officials in Georgia and Armenia, spearheaded cooperative humanitarian efforts, and hosted numerous international delegations through the U.S. State Department and Ministries in other countries which are associated with institutionalized children. Robin has a warm rapport with the wide range of individuals involved with children in need, including government officials, orphanage directors and staff, hospital and humanitarian aid administrators, and adoptive families and children alike.
Robin and her husband James are the adoptive parents of the first internationally adopted child from Georgia and, with their second adoption, of the first direct “birthmother to adoptive mother” international placement in Georgia. In addition to their two beautiful children from Georgia, Robin and James have also been blessed with the surprise birth of their youngest and third child. Robin’s work is well regarded and highly respected in both Georgia and Armenia, and she is considered a valuable resource and thoughtful orphan advocate by U.S. and international officials as the result of her dedication to children and families through humanitarian assistance programs over more than a decade. Most recently Robin has developed three additional direct programs for Hopscotch with highly experienced and reliable partners in Bulgaria, Ghana and Morocco.
Robin graduated in 1986 from Appalachian State University, Boone North Carolina with Bachelor of Science from the School of Communication and Media Arts, with a Concentration in Public Relations and Minor in Marketing.
