Amber is a birth mother in a semi-open adoption and, growing up in an NPE now post-reunion, also closely identifies with adoptees. She recently returned to college to pursue a degree in Psychology, followed by a master's, with a particular interest in trauma-based and adoption-competent care. In her free time, when not busy as a mom of four children at home or a preacher’s wife, she is an artist and writer, self-publishing her first book, “Haiku Therapy” this past spring.
