Gretchen holds 2 Bachlelor Degrees from Samford University and has served families as an Adoption Consultant with CAC for over 10 years. Gretchen and her husband, Justin, were one of Christian Adoption Consultants’ first clients, and they are now the proud parents of 3 children, all through adoption. They are actively involved in ministry at their church, as well as the crisis adoption center in their community.
After years of trying to add to our family, my husband Justin and I decided to take the plunge and explore our options for building our family through adoption. We initially explored international adoption, but were deemed “too young” for several of the programs that were available at that time. Friends from church referred us to mutual friends Amy and Malcolm Young with Christian Adoption Consultants. We were greatly encouraged to hear how quickly they were able to adopt their daughter by reaching out to several different agencies nationwide.
We were matched with our daughter’s birth mom just a few months after signing up with CAC, and Elizabeth was born shortly thereafter. Our two sons arrived even more quickly – one with just a day’s notice, and two years later, another beautiful boy who was born just a month after we started the process again.
I am honored to work for the organization that helped us fulfill our dreams of becoming parents, and am blessed to help other parents navigate the domestic adoption process.
