Adoption from India

Katherine Jamreonvit La Mirada, California

Our Journey to Adoption:

We have been open to the idea of adoption for a long time. At its core, we believe that God has a special care for orphans and over the years, He has been stirring in our hearts a growing desire to explore what He might have for us in reflecting His heart specifically through adoption.  We are very excited about growing our family through adoption, specifically from India, and if you'd like to hear the "long" version of our story, just ask us!  We'd love to share it with you.

Where We Are in the Process:

We are currently waiting on a referral! Our homestudy has been approved by both U.S. and Indian authorities which enables us to receive a referral at any time. While we wait for a referral, we are fundraising to help with some of the upcoming costs still associated with our process. The total cost of the adoption ranges from about $32-43,000. If you’d like to learn a little bit more about adoption from India through our agency (America World Adoption Agency), you can do so here: https://awaa.org/adopt/adoption-programs/india/overview/

How Can You Help?

First and foremost, we would love your prayers as we continue on our journey through adoption, specifically for the child that will come to us, how we as a family can grow as we anticipate the transition that will come with a new child, and that we would continue to trust God in and through the adoption process as we navigate finances, papework, and travel.

If you feel so led, we would also humbly rejoice at your financial support.  We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a $4000 matching adoption grant from our church, Grace EV Free La Mirada, in connection with Lifesong for Orphans. This means that your donations up to $4000 will be matched dollar for dollar. Anything raised above and beyond the $4000 matching grant will still go towards our overall fundraising goal of $17,000.

Thank you joining us in this journey!

We are matched!

April 7, 2019

We are thrilled to share that we have been officially matched with a baby boy.  While we can’t yet share pictures or too many specific details publicly, we are so thankful the Lord has brought us this far in our journey and are so eager to bring our little guy home.  We still have more steps to finish in the process, so travel is likely several months away.  We would love prayer that our remaining paperwork can be processed quickly and that our little guy would be well cared for while we wait to bring him home!
