3 Words to Describe Your Job: Emotional. Amazing. Rewarding!
How did you get into adoption? Was there a defining point in your career? As a teenager, I always loved shows on TLC on adoption. When I faced an unplanned pregnancy, I knew that my calling was adoption. I understood the emotion, the decisions needed to be made, and the fear of parenting. That fear gave me motivation and drive to begin my journey in working in the field of adoption. Children are my passion. I believe in a stable, loving environment for each child to grow into the unique person that they are. After many years of working in a child placing agency, I qualified as Child Placement Management Staff, and that was amazing to me personally to know that I was able to help make decisions for children.
A few sentences about your most memorable BM: Every birth mother I have worked with, means the world to me. They all hold a special place in my heart. I remember pretty much every one of them. They deserve that memory. I am pleased to say that adoption to me, does not see a difference in race or status, just a woman being brave and allowing me to help her in the biggest decision of her life.
One thing you want your clients to know about Adoption Choices: Adoption Choices of Texas is amazing for giving personal attention to every person in the process. From the birth mother to the adoptive parent, we strive on one-on-one service and support and to me, this sets us apart from any other agency in Texas.
Adoption is a journey, made of love, that is my passion in life. I love to show people my adoption triad tattoo to get people talking about adoption. I have worked in the field since 2001 and feel that adoption was my calling.
Thank you Jennifer!!
