OUR TEAM

KENTUCKY OFFICE

All Blessings is a Christian adoption agency which was founded in Kentucky in 2002, and our Kentucky office continues to be the primary headquarters for our agency. Our Founder, Lucy Armistead, leads the organization with passion and advocacy for children around the world.  Lucy is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and is active in all areas of operation.  Our Kentucky office is led by our Kentucky Office Manager, Jennifer Baldwin. ABI’s Office Assistant, Lynne Payne, is the helpful voice you hear when first contacting All Blessings. Dale Armistead, ABI’s bookkeeper, assists our families each day. Our Post Adoption Coordinator, Amy Larkin, and Post Adoption Assistant, Anji Edge, are both based in our Kentucky office. They assist ABI’s families during the post-adoption phase. If you ever have a chance to stop by our Kentucky office, we would love to meet you! The Kentucky office is always active as we assist families and children around the world!  Our Kentucky Office has caseworkers located throughout the state of Kentucky to assist adoptive families and expectant families in their adoption process who are searching to work with an ethical, Christian adoption agency.

MISSOURI OFFICE

As God blessed ABI, the agency grew, and expanded. In 2008, All Blessing’s Missouri office opened under the guidance of the Missouri Office Director and ABI’s Social Service Director, Emily Mathews, MSW, LCSW. Emily is also ABI’s Domestic Program Coordinator.  Emily is an adoptive mother of a son through the foster care system, a son from Taiwan and a daughter by birth.  Her love for adoption began when she met Executive Director, Lucy Armistead, and quickly embraced her passion and conviction for orphans as her own. In addition to managing the Missouri office and Domestic Program, Emily has been Program Coordinator for past international ABI programs such as China, Guatemala, Taiwan and Hong Kong and is a Birth Mother Counselor. 

INDIANA OFFICE

Natalie Seitz, MSW, began work at ABI as an Adoption Case Specialist in 2018 after working for foster care agencies in St. Louis and Indianapolis.  Natalie began her education with an interest in journalism but found a passion for social work after volunteering in children’s home settings in Jamaica and Taiwan.  This passion also led her to  adopt four children through both international and domestic adoption and is grateful for the experience she has had in multiple adoption situations. Natalie is now the Home Study Director for Indiana and Kentucky.  Her favorite part of the process is seeing children finally in the homes of the adoptive families with whom she works.

TENNESSEE OFFICE

Olivia Kluiter, MSW, Tennessee’s Office Director, began working at All Blessings International in 2019. While beginning her first job in the adoption field, Olivia quickly came to learn she had a strong passion for adoption work. In her time at All Blessings, Olivia has worked with adoptive families and adoptees in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana, counseled birth mothers, and earned the title of Director of Tennessee. Olivia has a great passion for this work and has plans to adopt in the future.

Stephanie  Williams, MA, LSW,  ABI’s Director of Education and Outreach, has had a passion for adoption since she was a child. Now, an adoptive mother of two children from Asian countries, Stephanie has worked in the adoption field since 2005 and has always had a great desire to help the adoption triad thrive.  Stephanie opened ABI’s Tennessee office in 2015 and she has worn many hats over the years, including Tennessee Director, Korea and Haiti Program Coordinator and Birth Mother Counselor.  Currently, Stephanie is leading our education and outreach services through coaching, consulting and training in effort to provide greater resources to the adoption community.

All Blessings International continues to see God grow our agency as He opens new doors for ABI. We are blessed to have so many opportunities to provide services to families and children all over the world!
