Pro-Life & Adoption Advocate
Kristi Hofferber is a pro-life and adoption advocate who shares a message about the value of life. She was conceived through rape and incest and speaks about how the gift of adoption spared her life, bringing tremendous joy to her adoptive family. After learning about this, Kristi was compelled to help others and left a ten-year career to go back to school to obtain her master’s degree in Social Work. She is now the Outreach Coordinator with Coalition for Life St. Louis, working to engage area churches in the 40 Days for Life prayerful, peaceful vigils and doing sidewalk counseling to provide women in crisis alternative options for supportive services.
Kristi travels to share her life-affirming story of an unthinkable beginning to a life with purpose. She is an adoptee, wife of a pastor who was also adopted, and together they have two adopted children. Her message is grounded in faith and love and speaks to God’s ability to take such an awful situation to bring glory for His purpose. Kristi has also reunited with her birth family, which they stated has brought them closure and healing. This reunion led to an incredibly special part of her story that she will share as well.
When you tell a woman who becomes pregnant by rape or incest that she should end the life of her unborn child, realize that you are not protecting the victim(s), you are protecting the perpetrator. ~ Kristi Hofferber, Conceived in Rape and Incest
