Favorite Bible Verse: Fear not, for I have called you by your name. When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers they shall not overflow you; when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned. For I am the Lord your God. Isaiah 43:1-2
Favorite Adoption Story: I enjoy when I get to work with a family on their home study and then their post adoption report. It is a blessing to see their journey from the beginning of their adoption story until their adoption is finalized. One of my favorite stories is a family who had chosen a child and were pursuing adoption. When I completed their home study update there had been some challenges with the adoption. They decided to change countries and ended up adopting a sibling group from another country. They also adopted a child from foster care who they knew through their community. This family touched my heart and it was amazing to see their challenges and then the additions to their family that were meant to be.
