A heart for mothers. A hope for families. A home for children.
Meet Jessica, Laura, Emily, Janelle, Emory, Sabrina, and Courtney. We are the FAC Team, and we are truly just that. We have an amazing working relationship and enjoy working together as we assist families in their adoption journey. We each have a God given desire to walk alongside adoptive parents as they wait on the Lord to grow their families through adoption. God has also given each of us a heart for birth moms. We desire to see adoption brought full circle by encouraging our adoptive parents to build Christ honoring relationships with their birth families. Our sincere hope is to see God use our adoptive couples to draw these precious birth families closer to Himself.
The FAC team believes that the Lord has called them to not only walk with our families as they adopt, but to encourage and continually pray for, and with each client (Galatians 6:2) through the emotional journey that is adoption.
We strive to guide our families with honesty and integrity as we walk through the rewarding, and sometimes hard journey of adoption. We love to celebrate each and every joy, but are also there to encourage and love BIG on the days this process is overwhelming and discouraging.
We seek to glorify God’s name in all that we do. We are blessed to have a front row seat as God builds families through adoption.

Emory and Courtney have been married for almost 14 years. The Lord has blessed them with 8 beautiful children through the miracle of both birth and adoption. Their passion for adoption originated from their strong pro-life convictions as well as their desire to honor the biblical mandate to care for the least of these.

Jessica is a huge asset to the FAC team and we are blessed to have her.
Jessica has been married to her husband, Shawn, for over 16 years. They have 4 beautiful children by both birth and adoption. Jessica’s passion for adoption originates from her strong pro-life convictions. She and Shawn felt that if they were going to be strong advocates for life, that they would need to stand behind that and be willing to adopt a child that might have otherwise been aborted. After their own domestic adoption through FAC, Jessica felt called to walk alongside other families through their own adoption journeys. Jessica has a passion for educating others on how to bring adoption full circle through open adoption and sharing the gospel not only with our children, but also biological families.

Sabrina is one of our Adoptive Parent Coordinators, as well an an Adoption Consultant. She will be walking new clients through the process of becoming an active client with FAC. Sabrina will be working alongside Emory as an adoptive parent coordinator to help families as they work through their home study, paperwork, profiles, etc. She and Emory will be the main points of contact for all clients before they become active. She will also remain a point of contact for families once they become active, helping to ensure a smooth transition. Sabrina will answer questions by phone and email regarding paperwork questions, profile design and printing, and questions you may have about the process once you become active. Her role will be largely relational, she will be your main point of contact via phone, whereas; Emory will concentrate on collecting and organizing paperwork, and much of his contact will come through email. In addition to working closely alongside Emory, Sabrina is also an adoption consultant and will be walking alongside families through the process.
Sabrina has been married to her high school sweetheart, Jamey, for 16 years. Adoption was always plan A for Jamey and Sabrina, but their plans were confirmed when Sabrina was told she would not be able to conceive. That moment led them to their first adoption. They now have 3 children, through both international and domestic adoption. They are passionate about both trans-racial adoption and special needs adoption. Sabrina has a heart for seeing women choose adoption over abortion, loving birth families BIG and WELL, and educating others on adoption.
After fulfilling her calling to adopt and grow her own family, she is now in the position to assist families as they grow through domestic adoption. She has been offering her wisdom to friends, family and even prospective clients of FAC for many years, so we are thrilled to officially have her join our team. We know she has so much to offer and will be a huge asset to the FAC Family.
