We feel that God has called us to start our family through adoption. He has blessed us on so many ways and has led us to the decision of adoption. We needed stretching and the adoption process has definitely helped us grow and learn to rely more on God. We decided that God was calling us to financially invest in an eternal future for a child rather than something material that will only last a few years.
As we have started into the adoption process we have been able to see so many amazing ways that adoption shows Christ. He adopted us into His family, He chose us and loved us even when we were broken. Adoption is expensive, there are so many little things that come up that we never thought we would have to pay for. But when we look at the price that God paid to adopt us, no expense in the world can come close to the price He paid for our adoption into His family! We want God to be glorified through our family adoption story.
We absolutely can’t do this alone! We need a community to support us and encourage us!
We have been awarded a $5000 matching grant from Potter Homes Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We are so thankful to Potter Homes and Lifesong for this generous gift!
