Key Kidsave Staff


Terry Baugh,
President and Co-Founder

While managing her communications business specializing in behavior change, Terry went to Russia to adopt a child. There she saw children warehoused in her daughter’s orphanage and couldn’t get them out of her mind. She shared the plight of these children with her colleague Randi Thompson. Together they founded Kidsave. Passionate about children having parents, Terry oversees Kidsave advocacy, communications and development in Washington, DC. Terry is a serial adopter and proud mom.

Randi pioneered the Family Visit Model in Russia and Colombia. She currently oversees Kidsave’s finances and our Los Angeles and international operations. A big fan of her family, Randi is an adoptive mom of two and proud step mother of two daughters and a grand-daughter.
