Schaap Family Adoption

Since the day Mark and I started dating, we shared a passion for caring for vulnerable children. The Lord has been gracious to grow our family biologically, but our joint desire to bring a child who needs a family into our home has never faded. Through much prayer, the Lord has started to open doors and we are excited to announce that we have begun the process of adoption. We are so excited to see what His timing and provision will look like during this process, and are excited to invite others to join us in our journey. 

Jude, Lily, and Brooke are thrilled and can't stop talking about our adopted baby. They ask almost every week when our new baby will arrive. We can't wait to watch as they love on their new baby sibling.

As you know, the adoption costs of bringing a child home can be overwhelming. Inviting others to join into this journey with us is a step of obedience. It's humbling and hard, but we believe it is one way the Lord will provide the funds.

We are currently working with a Pregnancy Resource Center and we hope to adopt a newborn. One thing we love about this PRC is that they care for the moms in crisis, just as much as they care for the babies in need. All funds raised will go to the care of the mother, baby, some medical and physical costs, adoption fees, and legal fees. 

We feel so blessed to be adopted into God's family through the forgiveness of our sins by Jesus Christ, and would consider it a honor and privilege to, in small part, follow his example by adopting a child who needs a family to love, care, support, celebrate, and teach about the peace that only Jesus can bring.

Would you consider praying about joining us finanicially? We would be greatly honored for you to be a part of bringing our child home. Words could never express our thankfulness! 

With all our love,
Mark, Megan, Jude, Lily, and Brookie
