Job Title: Pregnancy Counselor | Adoption Advocate
Favorite Bible Verse: Ephesians 3:14-21: For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Favorite Adoption Story: I would have to say my current favorite adoption story is my Husband’s adoption story. My mother in law was faced with health complications at a young age that caused her to have a medically necessary hysterectomy. She faced this procedure with bravery and grace, saying the Lord assured her no matter the outcome she would have another child. Several months after her procedure my father in law’s office secretary approached him stating she was facing an unplanned pregnancy and she felt the Lord was encouraging her to share this with him and his wife. My father in law shared their story and the Lord’s promise to them and she immediately shared she knew the Lord was fulfilling His promise to them through her. She shared she was blessed and honored to be the vessel through which the Lord blessed them and was humbled to be the one He chose. My Husband and his family still refer to his Birth Mom as his Angel and we thank the Lord for her bravery and sacrifice every day.
