Meet Amber!

From Amber:
“I am so blessed to be introducing myself as the Director of Domestic Adoptions! I am honored to continue serving children in this fresh capacity. I have a heart for serving birthmothers and adoptive families and strongly believe in An Open Door’s ministry of being the hands and feet of Christ.”

Amber is married to her husband of 23 years and they have one son. She received her education degree in 2000 and then a Master’s Degree in General Education in 2005. She has faithfully served children in the public school system for 18 years.

As a pregnant woman, you are probably wondering what your options are for the future. How will you manage your pregnancy? What does adoption look like? Can you continue to see your child after pregnancy? Can you continue to see your child after placing him or her? What will she think of you?

I can help you answer all these questions! My heart is to help you figure out exactly what’s right for you. It’s not the same for everyone. I am the Director of Domestic Adoptions, and we have counselors all over the state I would love to connect you with. In fact, we can meet with you, in person, the same day you call.

Call us! We’re here for you!
