In 2010 I felt God calling me to step away from my career in the secular non-profit sector, to first focus on my family and second, use my gifts to expand our family’s ministry of caring for orphans and vulnerable children.
Around this same time, my husband was diagnosed with stage three melanoma, our adoption journey inched along towards year three of being “in the process” and I realized that our story is important because God is writing it for us.
Not only is He writing it, but we believe God wants us to share our story with others. My desire is to encourage and equip others with practical ideas for orphan care and adoption through this blog, personal relationships, speaking engagements and coffee with strangers-soon-to-be-friends.
My experience is rooted in being a wife of seven years, mama to two sweet bio babes (ages four and two), our three and a half year pursuit of adopting a little boy from Africa, being a Safe Families host family, certified foster family and orphan care ministry leader.
