Angela Holland is a United States Air Force veteran, mom of 4 children, Empowered to Connect trainer, author and co-founder of Hope Fort Worth. Her two youngest have special needs and her youngest son, Ethan, was adopted 2 years ago from China. In 2015, Angela and her husband co-founded Hope Fort Worth, a non-profit orphan care ministry in Fort Worth, Texas, whose goal is to equip the local church to care for vulnerable and orphaned children in the community.
After her son, Ryan, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, Angela was inspired to author a book, I Like Storms: 22 Stories of Faith. Angela’s life message is that often when we suffer hardships, it is like we are looking at the back of canvas. We only see the lines and the blotchy paint, but if we would only turn it around we would see a Beautiful Picture. Her desire is to bring awareness, compassion, and understanding for foster, adoptive and special needs children by building a bridge of hope through her personal stories and education.
