This email went out to all current families this week from the Latin America Program Director, Christi Hicks:
Its with great sadness/excitement that I share some news with you. The sad part is that on March 14, 2008 I will be leaving America World. I’ve served with America World for 3 years exactly and am thrilled to see all the Lord has done in and through me in my time here. I feel that serving all of you in your adoption process has allowed me to grow in ways with the Lord that I never imagined. I will continue to pray with you and for your adoptions as you bring your long-awaited little ones home.
The exciting part is that I will be moving to Orlando, Florida to take the position of Executive Director with Identity for Children. I am excited to see how the Lord will allow my gifts and talents to best be used in this position as well as how he will continue to grow and stretch me for the sake of his kingdom and the least of the least.
I’m leaving you in quite capable hands. For those currently in the Latin America program, Katie Spencer, who has been the Post Placement/Intake Administrative Assistant for almost two years will split her responsibilities as the El Salvador Family Coordinator and Post Placement Coordinator beginning March 17, 2008 while Susan Maines will retain direction of the Latin America program.
Know that it has been such a blessing to serve and spend time with each of you in your journey.
