Hello all & thank you for reading more about us. Today we get to connect with Angela. (She’s Awesome!) I picked her because I love a great story & adoption is an important subject, especially here in Northwest Arkansas. We have too many kids who don’t have a home or options and it’s a sad, big problem that needs fixing. (Off my soapbox and on to Angela. 🙂 )
Here’s her business bio/photo:
Hello, my name is Angela Henry. I have lived in Fort Smith since 1986. I am a graduate of Fort Smith Christian School and have a BBA from the University of Central Arkansas. I am the accounts payable and warranty clerk here at Harry Robinson Buick GMC and have worked here since January of 2010. I love my job and my coworkers and feel very blessed to work for such a great dealership! When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. We enjoy being outside whenever given the chance. We love to walk, ride bikes, play basketball and much more!
Here’s her Q & A:
Name: Angela Henry
What’s your Job?
Accts Payable/Payroll/Warranty Clerk – I process all payables invoices and pay statements, pay all hourly employees and technicians and submit GM Warranty claims for payment.
If you feel comfortable with it, would you tell us about Solomon & your journey to get him and how awesome he is:
My husband Brett and I were wanting to start our family, so like any couple does, we started “trying”. After a long period of disappointments, fertility treatments and a devastating miscarriage, we started praying about the possibility of adoption. I was immediately open to adoption because I have always felt like it is just another wonderful way families are formed (I have an awesome brother who was adopted)! Brett, however, wasn’t sure how he felt about starting our family through adoption. We had been praying about it for a couple of months when our favorite Christian band Third Day introduced a new song called “Children of God”. The song is all about adoption – both physical adoption into families and spiritual adoption into the family of God. Brett knew immediately in his heart that this was God’s answer for us. We contacted Bethany Christian Services and started filling out paperwork in March of 2011. The adoption process can normally be long, tedious and full of ups and downs. Our experience was not normal. By November of 2011, we got the phone call that we had been waiting for – we had been chosen for a child! On December 31, 2011, our little boy Solomon was born. We were able to drive to his location the next morning to meet him – what a way to start a new year!!! Solomon is now a VERY energetic 3 ½ year old. He loves soccer, basketball, being outside, playing with trains and cars and watching “Mick Jr.”. (aka Nick Jr.).
Are you a morning person or a night person?
I am most definitely a morning person. I don’t like to talk for about 30 minutes to an hour after I wake up, but I do like to get up fairly early.
What was your first car?
1990 Toyota Corolla
Harry Robinson Buick inherited Angela with GMC….When Harry took over the GMC franchise he hired whoever wanted a job from the previous owner and he got Angela. I’m sooo glad he did!
Here’s some photo’s of Angela and her beautiful, awesome family.
Thinking about fostering, adopting or supporting the mission with your time or donations?
Here are some links:
The CALL is mobilizing Christians from multiple denominations and churches in local communities around Arkansas to meet the needs of local children in foster care.
The Fort Smith Children’s Emergency Shelter provides shelter & care, in a safe & structure, home-like environment for children ages 6-17 who have been removed from their home by the Department of Human Services due to neglect and/or abuse.
The goal at Bethany Christian Services is to find loving and nurturing homes for children. Adoptive families give children the opportunity to become all God intends for them to be.
Angela does a phenomenal job here & we love seeing her beautiful face everyday.
I’m so glad you shared! Thank you!
