Meet Jennifer Kelly 

There is a need for adoption professionals and adoptive families and it’s necessary to have the resources for medically complex adoptions. In honor of her daughter Joy, Jennifer Kelly opened Adopting Joy Consulting in order to provide prospective adoptive families and adoption professionals with the resources they need to help medically complex children reach their fullest potential. She has the expertise and the resources to help others with the adoption process through Adopting Joy Consulting. 

 

Before serving in the adoption community she worked in medicine, biotechnology, and teaching at the college level. She graduated with both a bachelor's and master's degree in Molecular Biology from Jacksonville State University. In 2015, in honor of her adopted daughter, Joy, Jennifer and another mother partnered together to open the country's only nationwide special needs adoption agency. Jennifer served as the Medical Director of that agency until 2021 before moving on to her new dream of Adopting Joy Consulting.

Meet Our Board

When I think of Jennifer, I smile. Adoption can be very overwhelming in all the paperwork, different routes, each States protocols, and so on. Jennifer never left our side, each question we had she had an answer for- or had already completed it for us! We were very fortunate to cross paths with this talented, giving, kind woman.
