Nigeria Adoption

$7,600 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 11 months
Hi, Thanks for taking the time to read about us! We're the Nymann family. We live in Ontario Canada. We have 4 biological children.  We love children very much, and have dreamed about having a large family! Do to medical reason's we're unable to have any more of our own children. John and I talked about adopting before we were married.   My mother was a foster child. When I heard how a loving family made a difference in her life, I've dreamed about being able to provide a family like that one day! We have been blessed to be able to do so. We have completed our home study, and been approved by the Ontario ministry. We are now waiting to be matched with a child from Nigeria! We're so excited about adding to our family.  My husband is taking part time seminary courses, and hoping to go into the ministry one day. This adoption has been really expensive,  but God has provided in big ways. We have been blessed with enough money to cover the costs of the adoption, through remortgaging our home, and people's generous donations.  We don't have enough yet for the trip, and bringing the little one home. We have been informed we have to stay in Nigeria for up to 4 months.  We are open to special needs, and will likely be matched with a child around 5 years old.  We just have such a burden on our hearts to adopt.  We have a great desire to add to our family, and provide a loving home for a child in need.  We're so thankful for everyone's love and support. We really feel bad asking for support.  This is not about us though. It's about a little child getting a home.  If you feel you'd like to help us bring this little girl home, you're welcome to donate to this sight, or contact us if you'd like to donate directly.  If you can't donate financially, we greatly appreciate your prayers and encouragement! Thank you so much for all your love and support! love John, Erin and family!

We can't express our gratitude enough for all the generous donations given towards Favours adoption! We stand amazed at God's providing hand! It's been a great encouragement during this difficult time of separation and uncertainty! For all those who don't know. Our adoption is complete, but we are just waiting for the Canadian government to issue a visa for Favour. I had to come home due to illness, and our family is currently separated, with John in Ghana with three of our children, and me now at home with the other 2. We're really praying that God would move the hearts of our government to allow Favour into Canada, but we also trust in the Lord, and that He knows what we cannot see or understand at times. We are going to continue to do whatever we can to get her home. Thank you for everyone's prayers, and support during this difficult time! God has used it to really encourage our hearts during this time! Thank you!!!! love John, Erin, Ethan, Gideon, Christopher and Hannah!!!

Hello everyone! Your love, generosity, prayers and support during this difficult yet belessed time has meant so much!! Unfortunitly i have ended up in the hospital here and regrettably we had let my health insurance exspire. We believed we had other insurance but it doesn't seem that will work either. We've actually had to change our flights around because I'm sick adding thousands of more dollars on an already very exspensive endeavor. We know our God is great and always takes care of his children. We're not worried! He will supply our needs. We have seen this over and over here in Nigeria. So many people visiting, making food for us, and encouraging us. We know that that is the Lord who is doing those things. We thank all the amazing people back home too for their generosity and support. We couldn't have adopted Favour without the help from all of you!Thank you!!! Please continue to pray as u will be flying back to Canada today!love from all of us.

I haven't updated this in a while, and I'm sure most people know already, but we've completed the adoption of our little girl. Her name is now Favour-Gloria Erin Nymann. Things are going well, and she's adjusting well to our family! We're currently waiting in Nigeria for our Favour's Canadian visa to be issued. We're so thankful for all the love and support we have had through all of this, it has been amazing, and such an encouragement! The expenses have been very high, but we know our God provides, and is providing for all our needs. We have accumulated a fair bit of debt over this, and still have many expenses left to come. If you feel lead and are able to help us bring Favour home, you're welcome to donate here. If you're unable to we, completely understand. We would greatly appreciate your prayers! We know God hears and answers the prayers of His people! Please pray that we may be able to come home soon, and that God will continue to supply all our needs! Thank you for everyone's generous love and support! It really has been an amazing blessing and encouragement! sincerely John, Erin and family!

We have finally been matched with our little girl! Her name is Favour, and she is 6 years old. We're just so excited. We're leaving in a short while to go and adopt her. We will be in Nigeria for a long time! Please keep us in your prayers! We really need them! :) Our God has been so good, and has been providing for all our needs. The adoption has been very expensive, but God is providing in amazing ways. We can continue to need support as we will be staying in Nigeria for about 4 months. If you can't afford to provide financially we totally understand! Please pray for us! We know God hears and answers prayers! We praise God for this precious gift! Favour means, " Gift of the divine", and that is exactly what she is to us! We're so thankful for her, and just can wait to hug her, and get to know her! Please pray God will work in her heart, and comfort her during this time of transition. Please pray for God's guiding and sustaining hand on all that we have yet to go through! Thank you for all your love and support!!! Love John, Erin and family
