Meet Kelsey Melvin
In middle school, I stood in a crowded court room while the judge finalized the adoption of my cousins. In that moment, I knew that I wanted to commit the rest of my life to the journey of adoption. I volunteered at various adoption agencies in high school then began as an intern for an international adoption agency in 2009. Since that time, I’ve been blessed to facilitate and supervise hundreds of international adoptions. I am truly passionate about what I do. I recognize that adoption is one of the most incredible life experiences one can have and I find great joy in playing a small role in each family’s journey. I pride myself on being available to prospective adoptive parents during the initial inquiry phase, during the homestudy process, and for years to come. Being a mama of two is my greatest joy, and I’m grateful that my role in adoption allows others to experience the love of a family.
