I have always felt that being a friend was my greatest strength. Working with birth mothers with An Open Door allows me to laugh with you and cry with you and to just overall support you as you walk through this season of your life. My role is not to convince you to take a certain path, but to give you the information about adoption that will allow you to make the best possible decision for you and your child.
Sandy earned a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University. Sandy enjoys working with birth mothers and helping them choose a forever home for their child. She feels blessed that God chose her to work with young women at a time when they are giving their child the greatest gift of all, a safe, nurturing home where love is evident.
I see myself in each of these birth mothers as they struggle with the difficult decision of adoption. As a teenager, I had placed my baby daughter for adoption, and I truly understand the feelings and emotions that are attached to this process. I can honestly say to our birth mothers, “I know how you feel.”
I am an elementary school counselor. I have had a passion for working with families and children throughout all of my adulthood. Adoption is close to my heart not only because I work at an adoption agency but also my husband was adopted as an infant. I had a strong desire to adopt for many years until having multiple children of my own. Working as a counselor for birth mothers and prospective birth families is rewarding for a myriad of reasons.
I am a Licensed Master of Social Work and have a passion for counseling and helping people with the practical aspects of life that can become overwhelming when done alone. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to walk with women who are making such a difficult and courageous decision in their lives. My desire is to be a blessing to each birth mom that I work with by helping her make the best decision for her and her child, whatever that decision may be.
There is nothing quite like witnessing the day when new adoptive parents meet their little baby. God builds families in more than one way. It is also a blessing to see a birth mother learn how God can use this trying time in her life to help her to find her own potential, while also making the responsible and loving choice of adoption for her child. Being a part of this process is like watching a miracle develop over time. It’s truly amazing.
With each adoption, I am there to hear your story. Hearing so many stories over the years has helped me see how God is already working on redemption for the birth mother and for her baby. I get to see how our adoptive families love and care for the birth mother. I hear stories of birth mothers being led to Christ through their adoption plan. Most importantly, I get to personally and spiritually see the gospel working with each and every birth mother and adoptive couple.
