We are adopting!

Adoption has always been on our minds and in our hearts. After many continuous prayers for nearly 8 years, God is now calling us to adopt and bring home a child from the state of Georgia. We believe the Lord has picked out the perfect child to grow in our family. A child who we can love and most importantly show HIS love. We are excited and defiantly nervous - all the feelings!!!

We humbly ask for you to walk with us in this because we cannot do this alone! First and foremost, we ask that you would please pray for our family and pray for this child that will be joining our family. It’s no secret that adoption is very expensive, and a common question is why - money goes towards care for the birth mother, lawyers, doctors and social works, to name a few.

To be completely honest, we were a bit overwhelmed when we saw the amount we need to raise. We questioned if this would even be possible in the amount of time we have. But, when worry started to arise, we realized we are depending on our own-selves, rather than depending fully on God. God has been teaching us so much, mostly so to fully trust Him every-single-step of the way.

We pray that our adoption will show the people we surround the true love of Christ. In Matthew 18:5, we read “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me.” There are many orphans in the world, and we understand we are not able to help each and every single one of them, which breaks our hearts. But, we pray and believe that the Lord will use us and our adoption for His purpose, and inspire other families to adopt and help those who are desperately in need. 

We are thankful the Lord has adopted us as His children and we are excited to meet our third child (ahh!!)! In whichever way you contribute, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

WE ARE SO EXCITED!!
