Millie is a foster and adoptive mom. In the past five years, she has welcomed 8 children into her home ranging in age from 4 days to 20 years old. While she initially felt called to be a children’s minister, Millie found a passion for photography in high school, and, after graduating with a business degree she built one of the most sought after photography studios in the southeast.
Fostering helped her realized her call to children’s ministry was very different than the one she imagined. Millie has adopted two children through foster care and continues to open her home to children for respite and short-term placements. Millie says her heart is to always advocate for children in foster care.
If she looks familiar to you, it might be because when she adopted her oldest child, their adoption went viral and landed them national attention, including an appearance on Good Morning America.
In addition to advocating for children in care, Millie loves talking foster care with those seeking advice and support.
