Bailee’s passion for children who have been abandoned,
neglected, and abused started at a very young age and has only grown with time.
Bailee received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with an
emphasis in Social Work and a minor in Psychology and Bible from Biola
University. This program studied both the child welfare system and provided her
with a Bible-based approach as to how to best love, understand, and support
children from these backgrounds. Bailee also had the opportunity to get
practical experience working with and serving orphans by traveling to Ethiopia
and South Africa. During these trips, she stayed at various orphanages,
supporting the long term missionaries, and developing a deeper knowledge and
passion for orphan care.
Upon graduating, Bailee began working at a group home for
teen girls and their babies involved with DCFS and probation.This experience
propelled her to do more, as she saw firsthand that a residential treatment
center is not a sufficient replacement to holistically meet a child’s needs.
Bailee desired to work directly with foster and adoptive families who are
willing to meet these children's deepest need, a forever home and family.
