OUR mission

FLOURISH ADOPTION MINISTRIES EXISTS TO BUILD FAMILIES AS GOD DESIGNED, TO OFFER AFFORDABLE ADOPTIONS WITH INTEGRITY, AND TO PROVIDE SUPPORT IN A WAY THAT HONORS EVERYONE.

PUT GOD FIRST

In Decision Making - Each decision we make should be a step further along the journey God has laid out for us.

At Home - Consider how you spend your time, resources, energy, spiritual gifts, and understanding of God. Everything we have was meant to bring God glory. 

At Work - Putting God first with our work can be the catalyst others need to want to get to know Him.

back to core values

SERVE WITH A MINISTRY MINDSET

• Jesus led by serving and loved by serving.
• Serving others and humility go hand in hand.
• To be a servant means you genuinely need to care for people—keeping your hearts, ears and schedules open for divine appointments.
• No task was ever beneath Jesus and no person was ever unworthy.


back to core values

EMPOWER OTHERS WITH GUIDANCE, COMFORT, & TRUTH

• We don’t need to have all the answers—what’s more important is being present.

• Comfort others by sharing how God has comforted you.

• "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” -2 Corinthians 1:3-4

• Truth inspires change. God’s word changes us and has the potential to change others through us.

back to core values

OPERATE WITH INTEGRITY

• Integrity means being honest, whole, and undivided.
• Be honest with yourself.
        - Do I say I will do things that don’t get done?
        - Do I make excuses for not following through?
        - Do I substitute words when actions are needed?
• Our integrity is priceless, the choices we make matter.

Becca Wise

Elyse Evans

Outreach Coordinator

Case Worker

Becca grew up in Easley, SC, returning there after attending the College of Charleston. She considers herself a "forever newlywed" with her husband, and spends most of her free time redecorating their home and reading—always with coffee in hand. Becca loves connecting with the community + sees this position as one of her biggest answered prayers.

Elyse was born and raised in the Upstate of SC and will always be ever loyal to her alumni, Clemson University—Go Tigers! She loves spending time with family, friends, and her golden retriever, "Finley Jo." She enjoys working with and supporting expectant and birth mamas throughout their adoption journey.

Anna Haynes

Elizabeth Bordeaux

Embryo Coordinator / Operations Coordinator

Executive Director

Anna lives with her husband and daughter in Greenville, SC. She and her family enjoy the upstate and everything it has to offer. Anna loves serving families in her role at Flourish and feels God has given her a heart to help families thrive.

Elizabeth grew up in the Upstate of SC, where she still resides today with her husband and their two children. Elizabeth loves to read in her free time (thrillers are her favorite) and also enjoys playing 'Mahjong' monthly with a group of friends. Adoption is deeply woven within the Bordeaux's story and Elizabeth loves being able to get to know so many other families whose lives have been touched by adoption in some way. 

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS IS MADE UP OF GODLY MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUR MINISTRY AND FEEL CALLED TO SERVE IN UPHOLDING ITS’ MISSION & VALUES AND STEWARDING WHAT THE LORD IS CALLING US TO.
