Favorite Bible Verse: Isaiah 40:31 “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Favorite Adoption Story: My favorite adoption story is my family’s. My daughter, Annabel, joined our family through adoption in 2015. She was seven years old when we first met her, and those early years of her life were full of trauma. She and our family continue to feel the impact of what she endured when she was younger. We learned very quickly that the road to healing from childhood trauma is long and full of ups and downs. It’s been through our own adoption journey that we’ve witnessed God at work, through stages of Annabel’s healing and also by shaping and molding us into His image. This is the beauty of adoption, that my daughter and her story would teach me so much about God’s love for His people. Professionally, I’ve also had the opportunity to share my personal experiences with adoptive families and remind them that they’re not alone in the many struggles that adoption brings.
