Amanda Wiltshire

Our hearts are greatly saddened by the loss of this precious lady. She came into our lives two years ago as she worked
to license us as foster parents. We developed a sweet friendship over these short years and were blessed to have been
currently working with her as our Adoption Specialist. She was very compassionate about her job and loved her foster
children and families with a passion. She was always so happy to hear of milestones met by our "little" and would call
and jabber back and forth with her on the phone. She was always so kind to Kaylyn Rose and would ask about her
often as well. She was always encouraging and had an affectionate smile. I know her family will miss her dearly as will
all of us who have had the privilege to know her. We are so thankful for the time we had to know her. Prayers for all.
The Wiltshire's- Troy, Amanda, Kaylyn Rose, and "little"
