From the time we started dating, adoption was always a ministry that we felt called to support and ultimately, participate in one day. Throughout our 10 years of marriage, we continued to have that conversation among ourselves while also spending ample time in prayer regarding the topic. It was never a question of “if” but always a question of “when.” Last summer after moving into our new house and having our two biological children, Judah and River, old enough to pursue international adoption, God moved our hearts by answering the “when” question by saying “now.” After some more time in prayer regarding specifics, God called us to adopt a young girl from China. We began to start the home study process with Lifeline Children’s Services and were approved to adopt one girl with minor special needs from China. Now as we work on immigration paperwork and other essential steps in the process, there are two vital ways that you can support our adoption:
- Pray. Pray for our adoption process, fundraising and ultimately, our little girl as she makes the transition into our family.
- You can help us financially by taking part in our matching grant sponsored by Argo Christian Fellowship and administered by Lifesong for Orphans. For every dollar you donate, Lifesong and Argo Christian Fellowship has agreed to match your donation!
Thanks so much for your prayers and support!
