Why I started with Arms Wide Adoption Services:
I knew I wanted to work with kids in need ever since a social worker spoke at my high school career day. She inspired me to pursue my psychology degree and work at CPS. After a year at CPS, my sister, who was working at Arms Wide, told me about an opening here. I loved that I would be supporting adoptive families, so I applied for the position!
My favorite part about my job:
My favorite part about my job is helping families. However, my wonderful coworkers are a close second—Cynthia and Donna are great mentors to me.
My least favorite part:
Knowing there are still 6,000 children in Texas waiting to be adopted.
