Baby Bowen

Susanna Bowen San Clemente, California

Mark and I got married in August, 2017. We are so happy together and we can’t wait to expand our family by having a little one to love. We have always been interested in adoption and we are excited to fulfill this dream.

Susanna: I have been a pediatric nurse for 21 years and love children with my whole heart. I have long been interested in adoption, since my first service mission abroad at aged 18 in Romania. I was working in an orphanage with children who were HIV+. It was then that the Lord put it in my heart to adopt. Mark and I want to expand our family with children and feel lead by the Lord to do this by adopting.

Mark: Before meeting my wife Susanna, I always felt like adopting a child would be a great way to express my gratefulness to God for adopting me into His family.  After getting to know Susanna and hearing her stories serving children with great needs throughout the world, I was convinced that adopting a child was something that the Lord had in store for us.  I have no doubt that God has led us to the point so far and will continue to do so.
