We are Tim and Christina Schuijt from Idaho. We have been married 7 years and have 3 fun and energetic boys, Ezra (5), Noah (3), and Elijah (1). They are asking for a sister! Christina has had the desire to adopt since she was a little girl. After having several adoptive families in our lives, Tim decided adoption was something he would like to be part of our family story.
Our family has stepped out in faith following the calling of adoption that God has placed in our family's hearts. God has shown us that our newest member resides 6,694 miles away in an orphanage in China. Our daughter is a sweet little chubby cheeked girl who has been waiting 2 long years for a family to call her own.
God's Word says in James 1:27 "...to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." In the same way that we are adopted into new life with Christ, we believe that the calling of adoption is an outpouring of the love we have received from HIM.
We understand that not every family is called to bring an orphan into their homes but would like to provide the opportunity for your family to partner with ours in our journey to help expand not only our family but the family of Jesus Christ as well.
This is a huge step of faith for us and we are excited to have you walk alongside us and be part of her story. We humbly ask for your help in bringing her home and forever changing her life. If you are unable to give a monetary donation, please join us in praying for our journey bringing our little girl home.
