For the past eight years Tapestry has been led by a great group of committed and dedicated volunteers. This team together with many others have poured themselves into serving families well, and God has done some truly amazing things with their investment. As a result, Tapestry (and its companion ministry Empowered To Connect) have continued to experience tremendous growth, and with this comes many more opportunities to serve the adoption and foster community. So the time has come to expand the team so that we can serve more effectively.
As we move forward our volunteer leadership will continue to lead and serve, but Amy Curtis will come alongside them and provide so much needed additional expertise, direction, and help. Amy brings with her a ton of experience and some important credentials, but most important she brings a servant’s heart and a passionate commitment to serve families and children in a way that brings about true healing.
You can read more about Amy and her background below, but please join us in welcoming Amy to the Tapestry Team.
Amy Curtis is the mother of two amazing young adults, an adoptee herself, a Licensed Social Worker, and a Licensed Professional Counselor. Since graduating from Baylor University in 1984, Amy has worked with adoptees of all ages, children in foster care, birth families, adoptive families, and foster families. Over the last 13 years, she worked for The Gladney Center for Adoption in various roles.
Amy has a passion for learning and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Family Therapy. Amy combines her Christian faith with research related to attachment, grief, loss, and trauma. She completed TCU’s Institute of Child Development’s Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) training and utilizes the principles of TBRI in her work with families and children.
Amy has been connected with Tapestry for several years, and has led Tapestry’s discussion group for adopted teens since 2010. She loves working with parents, children, and teens, and has been instrumental in Tapestry’s focus on the voices of adopted persons. She presented Making Sense of It All at the 2011 Tapestry Conference, and was part of Listen To Our Hearts at the 2012 Tapestry Conference.
