Kandace’s Favorite Bible Verse: Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Kandace’s Favorite Adoption Story: In 2013 I began working with a woman that became one of my most precious friends. She had recently received, through foster care, a set of siblings that were just the most precious children in the world. After five years of hurtling obstacles, she and her husband were finally able to adopt. They have continued to grow their family since then by adopting two more precious babies that are full of joy and laughter. Being part of their lives, I get to see the true blessings of adoption.

Education: Bachelor’s Degree of Social Work from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Responsibilities: As a Pregnancy Counselor, I counsel and educate expectant parents who are considering adoption. I assist them throughout their adoption journey by helping them make a hospital plan, connect them to resources, facilitate match meetings between the expectant parents and prospective adoptive parents, and offer continual support. Maintaining relationships with pregnancy centers and hospitals can assure everyone in the process they’re getting the care they deserve.

RoNishia’s Favorite Bible Verse: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. – Corinthians 13:4-8

RoNishia’s Favorite Adoption Story: I can not choose just one adoption story as a favorite. Every physical adoption has been such a sweet, beautifully special blessing to be apart of. The Bible speaks about adoption in a spiritual sense. As Romans 8:15 so beautifully states, “The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry,‘Abba, Father.’” God says we become part of His family in much the same way a family welcomes a new child — it is done out of love. As God adopts those who receive Christ into His spiritual family, it is my desire to continually see more and more children also adopted into their forever families.
