Job Title: Pregnancy Counselor and Home Study Provider
Favorite Bible Verse: Jeremiah 17:7-8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Favorite Adoption Story: My husband and I are very passionate about adoption. It has played a large part in both of our families. One of my favorite adoption experiences is in my own family. My cousin, Megan, was born in China, but was adopted internationally by her forever family at age 7. Watching Megan blossom and grow in my family has been a beautiful experience to be a part of and see, and has continued to grow my love and passion for adoption.
