Amber and her husband, Bill Williams, are lifelong residents of the Florida panhandle. When Amber and her husband decided to grow their family in 2013, they were inspired by Will (Bill's son/Amber's stepson) to pursue adoption of children with Down syndrome . In July of 2014 they welcomed home Hamilton and Cadman from orphanages in Ukraine, making them the proud parents of three boys with Down syndrome. You can learn more about their adoption journey that took them to Ukraine for two months and all it took to get there on Amber's Blog she maintained during that time. Start HERE!
Unfortunately, Amber was in a car accident Thanksgiving weekend of 2016 that left her paralyzed from the waist down and with a badly injured left wrist. She spent the holidays in rehab at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia, a facility that specializes in spinal cord injuries. Amber returned home from impatient rehab in January to allow her wrist time to heal fully before retuning for additional therapy April and May. She is overjoyed to be back home with her family and is so grateful to be with her boys everyday. She's slowly recovering feeling in her legs and continues to hope that movement will come back soon. In the meantime Amber is busy taking care of her boys, getting back to work and continuing to advocate for awareness and acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome.
