Favorite Adoption Story: My family has been touched by adoption in many ways, but my new favorite story is the adoption of our son, Bryan, who we adopted from Colombia in 2018. We had no intention of becoming adoptive parents, so it was definitely something God put on our hearts and in the hearts of our other children. It became clear after hosting Bryan during one of Nightlight’s hosting opportunities that he was meant to be part of our family. There have been plenty of struggles and ups and downs, but also much joy and love. We are so grateful to have him as part of our family.

Favorite Bible Verse: “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.” Psalm 37:4, NLT
Favorite Adoption Story: Adoption is an incredible blessing! It is an opportunity to give of ourselves and to live a life of intentionality, looking beyond our own concerns to the needs of another, providing love and support. Every adoption is a gift! It is a blessing, realized or unrealized, to both those who give and those who receive. When you get to see the love and true delight in a person’s eyes as they welcome a life into their small part of the universe, there is nothing like it! Their joy overflows, even the little ones, the babies, they know they are loved! Although I’m asked what my favorite adoption story is, and several come to mind, the truth is that there is nothing like your own.
Education: Jen has a BS in Organizational Management in Human Resources, with a minor in Psychology and has an MA in Curriculum and Instruction, specializing in Corporate Education. Yet despite her education and experience in both HR and Training, her most valued management experience was spent working in a communications company and serving on three continents. “Working with cultures, from all around the world, gave me a deeper understanding of people, their values, and how we all want to make a difference in life.”
Responsibilities: For families, and individuals, who want to give their remaining embryos a chance to be born, I am here to help anyway I can. Therefore, if you are one of those amazing people who is considering Embryo Donation, you probably have a number of questions that you would like answered, that is where I come in. I am here to answer your questions, put your mind at ease, and should you decide to move forward, provide you with the support you need as you make the best choices for you and your remaining embryos.

Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 16:11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Favorite Adoption Story: My favorite adoption story is the adoption journey of close family friends. They felt the Lord leading them to adopt a child with special needs from South Korea, and although they had two biological children and did not necessarily have the finances to afford an international adoption, they knew God would provide if it was part of His plan. To make a long story short, they were able to bring their son home from South Korea when he was about one and a half years old. A few years later, they received a call from their adoption agency saying that their son's birth mother had another child and asked if they would be interested in adopting her. Although adopting another child was not part of their plan, it was part of God's plan, and they knew they couldn't say no. So, they trusted the Lord's plan and provision and were able to adopt their son's half-sister and brought her home when she was about two years old. I have been this family's babysitter for years, since their biological children were little, so I have had the joy of welcoming both of these children into the family and seeing how they fit into this family so well, like they were always meant to be a part of this family. I have been able to love on these children and grow my relationship with them, so it is a very personal and amazing adoption story that I am blessed to have a small part in!

Favorite Bible Verse: “and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12: 1b-2
Favorite Adoption Story: My favorite adoption story is that of Shabana Sparks who was adopted from India in the 1980s through our MO office. I came across her story a few years ago and have been inspired by her adoption story ever since. Her passion for adoption and her humble attitude towards God’s careful working of every detail in her story is so moving to me. I was thrilled to have recently had the opportunity of meeting her! Seeing her now, as an adult adoptee, I’ve been inspired to adopt internationally someday. What an awesome opportunity to share your love with a child, and in turn give them an opportunity to know Christ’s love! How exciting it will be to see them using their gifts and talents to further Christ’s kingdom because you were able to give them opportunities that they might have never had.
Education: Bachelors in Early Childhood Education, Bob Jones University
