Emily Thornton

Adoptee Consultant + Speaking Partner

Emily Thornton joined our staff in August 2018 as Director of Finance and Donor Development. Since then she has stepped away from regular capacity as she focuses on raising her 4 young children and running her family’s business. Emily brings with her a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. She also has worked for the adoption agency, Holt International, as well as another nonprofit.
Emily is a transracial Adoptee from Korea and we are grateful for her vital voice in helping Foster Love Project speak to the unique needs of kids who have experienced foster care and/or adoption. Emily & her husband are parents to 6 through birth, foster care and adoption. Kelly & Emily often speak together on the benefits of open adoption. She has a vision to expand resources available to our Pittsburgh foster and adopted youth and we are excited to implement her ideas in our region. Her life experiences are an incredible asset to our Foster Love Project community.
