Team Brown Adopts

In 2010, we met and daydreamed about our future together. We’ve always had a big heart for our adoption. We shared our dreams... both of us hoping we could have a baby girl biologically then adopt! So there the journey began.

In the Bible, it calls us to care for the orphans and widows (James 1). There are many ways to do this - but we know God has put the ask of us to welcome a child into our home through the miracle of adoption. And we said “YES!” There is a big space in our hearts and home waiting for a special boy or girl that we will call our own. 

After two years of praying and researching, we are officially in contract with Bethany Christian Services to begin our Infant Domestic Adoption.

We are asking the villages of friends and family to join along with us in support in the capacities they can. Prayerfully and financially. Let’s be honest, we can’t do it without you!

In total, a domestic adoption with Bethany Christian Services is $29,000. Why? Legal fees, program fees, medical fees, home study processes, state paperwork, you name it. We aren’t letting the cost stop us! 

Would you pray about supporting us financially and watching how God can multiply? We believe He will provide and we are waiting to see how He’ll do it.

We love you. Check out our Instagram at @teambrownadopts for updates.
