Our Journey To Adoption

$700 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 15 months

Hello everyone!
We have been married for 7 and a half years and have a wonderful little boy who is now 4. After his first year, we decided we wanted to grow our family! Little did we know there would be a long bumpy road ahead of us. 

After almost 2 years of trying, we began infertility treatments and had 2 failed IUI's. With this, came a lot of heartbreak; but we decided to let go, stay hopeful and trust that God had a bigger and better plan waiting for us.... and that He did. 

During this time, we had just moved to Japan due to military orders. Although we were not completely happy with the idea of moving across the world, we were certain there was a reason why. We immediately plugged into an awesome church where we would meet some sweet friends, and soon found out they had adopted twice! It was such a blessing to see. We were so encouraged; and a year later, we felt God calling us in that same direction.  
After A LOT of time praying and thinking about this, we were convinced this was our purpose here. We know in our hearts that adoption was the answer to our prayers! 

We made this decision a few months ago and started moving forward with the process. We are going with an international adoption from Korea and we are beyond excited to grow our family soon! God knew exactly what He was doing in our lives and we have never felt more at peace. 

Adoption can be a very long process, and there is a lot of steps and fees along the way. This is where you come in! 
Whether its prayers, sharing our story, or financial support, we are eternally greatful for having you all be a part of our wonderful adoption journey. 

Please feel free to watch the video above for more details :)

Thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts.
