God has given us a heart for adoption for over a decade now. The first time we started to adopt in 2007, we were so intimidated by the cost of adoption that we gave up. In 2012, we still felt God calling us to adopt, and this time we had better support and successfully brought our first adoptive daughter home in June 2014. We always knew we would adopt twice, but were uncertain of the timing. In May 2017, as Aaron prayed for waiting children to find a family, God introduced us to our next daughter! Here we are just 8 months later, preparing to travel to China to bring home Jada Renee Aardal! She is 5 1/2 years old and we are so excited to welcome her into her forever family.
STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”.
