More About Holly Nicole James

Adoption Advocate, Holly Nicole James, is a momma to two fun, energetic boys, and wife to her always supportive husband, Jeremy. Holly's dream to adopt began in junior high after learning about population control laws in China. It was a "must-accept" checklist item to move beyond dating, and her husband gladly accepted. After having their first son through pregnancy, Holly and Jeremy decided to next expand their family through domestic, CPS adoption. 

After their youngest son joined their family, more and more people began asking questions about their process and adoption life. It was then that Holly saw the need for a spotlight to be shed on adoption, what it entails, and how to join alongside families who are adopting. She began advocating for adoption and sharing her story in March of 2016.

Holly has been featured in Buckner International’s quarterly magazine as well as a quest blogger, and her story has been shared on World Adoption Day and Stand for Life. 

You can find her sharing more of her story of adoption through CPS and a glimpse into the everyday life of what adoption and motherhood can really look like on her website
