Adopting a Son from China

Katie Hall Tualatin, Oregon

A little boy in China is waiting to be a part of our family! We are in the process of adopting a 0-3 year old boy with manageable or correctable special needs such as cleft palate, orthopedic issues, heart condition, etc. through All God's Children International.

We always envisioned having a large family, but that is not what the Lord had planned for us. After struggling with infertility and miscarriage we were blessed with our biological daughter, Lydia. In 2016-2017 we went through the process of adopting donated embryos. Those embryos were transferred to Katie's uterus, but did not implant. It seemed our attempts to expand our family were fruitless, but we believe God orchestrated these events for the specific purpose of leading us to adopt. We had discussed and considered traditional adoption, but the high cost and arduous process held us back. Finally, after much prayer and consideration we decided that if finances were the biggest barrier to adoption we would have to step out in faith and trust that God would provide. We have already seen Him provide through his people at just the right time along the way. It is exciting to see how He has been with us throughout this process.

We are still waiting to be matched with just the right child for our family. It would be an honor if you would join us in praying that God would bring just the right son to us and that He would provide the money we need to do so. International adoption costs are around $40,000 but we know the Lord can provide through His people! We have been blessed to be approved for a matching grant of $2,500 through Lifesong for Orphans and their ministry partner, Hear the Cry. If you feel so led you may donate to our adoption. Financial contributions are tax deductible and may be given online or by mail.

Thank you for joining us on this journey of adoption as we step out in faith to bring our son home! We pray that God will be glorified as He provides through His people and that we will be a picture of the gospel not only to our son, but to the world around us as we adopt him into our family.

Grants!

November 3, 2018

We are so thankful to have received two grants for our adoption! Lifesong along with Hear the Cry gave us a $2500 Matching Grant. Thanks to the generosity of friends and family we have met that goal! Show Hope gave us a $4000 Direct Grant. Both of these are reflected in our Raised to Date total. Donations we receive will continue to be added to our adoption fund but will no longer be matched. Thank you so much for your generosity! It is exciting to see God provide through His people!
