Welcome friends and family! Thank you for joining us on our journey to adopt from Colombia! We have been awarded a $5000 matching grant from the Johnson Ferry Baptist Church adoption fund which is administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We are so greatful for God’s provision and look forward to faithfully stewarding this gift as we pursue His call for adoption. In that light, we’d love to share a little background on how we ended up here sharing our story with you!
You might be wondering why our story is titled “Beautiful in Time”. It comes from the passage Ecclesiastes 3:11a which states “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” This verse highlights that God is writing the story of our family. Through the pains and joys of life we have learned that the Potter is shaping our lives into a beautiful vessel. This process is not always easy, but in time we have learned to see the beauty of God’s design and look forward to our adoption being a part of our story.
We once again thank you so much for your love and your willingness to partner with us on this journey!
