O'Brien's Adoption Fund

We have a very unique and genuine love story. Our lives individually have been intertwined only to yield a gorgeous bloom and further to spread its fragrance to the ends of the earth. It began, as we were childhood friends growing up at the same daycare and playing in the same circles of friends. As we grew older, we would meet through a mutual friend in high school and later discover having grown up in the same neighborhood for years. Again we would meet in college developing a friendship to later establish a love and vow made to each other and God in holy matrimony. Our bond became one of blossoming love, growing respect, precious cherishment, and contagious laughter. 

In the same manner, our family story is unique. We knew before we were married that we would someday adopt. God had laid it on our hearts early in our relationship. As we viewed it as a long off achievement we began to pursue a more natural way of giving birth. In the past two years God has made it clear our timing and plans are not always God’s timing and plans. So instead of continuing to pursue after our own plans we have chosen to chase after His.

This is where we stand today. We have chosen to open the doors to a new journey. A journey that will lead us to another country to bring home our forever child(ren). We truly believe that now is the time God has called us down this path. We are very excited to begin our family by bringing home an orphan(s).

Please consider supporting us and little O'Brien financially. We are so grateful for everything we have but know that we cannot support this full cost alone. Thank you for your consideration in donating.
