Shipp Adoption Fund

Hi, we're the Shipp family! Andrew is an attorney and I (Rachel) am a stay at home mom to our 5 wonderful children.

We are in the process of adopting. Even though we already have what some would call a quiver full, we aren't full yet. We've always talked about adoption, even from the time we were dating. We always assumed it would be something God would call us to later in life when our first batch of kids were older and in high school or college. But recently we realized that we don't want two families. We want one. Since all of our kids are close in age it makes the most sense to start this now. God will give us the grace to handle whatever and whomever He puts into our lives and family. So we start this journey now.

James 1:27 - Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

We are adopting through Waiting Texas Children/CPS. While the fees will be minimal for the adoption, home study, training, etc., the biggest hurdle will be the purchase of a 12-15 passenger van.

Please consider giving to our adoption and helping our future children join a loving family. Any amount will help!
