Our motivation to adopt came from our long journey of infertility over the course of 3 years. We’ve prayed and we feel that this apart of our story to growing our family. Over the course of this journey we’ve met families locally here in Chattanooga and various other states that have gone through the same journey. They’ve shared their infertility journey and their adoption journey. Because of these families we’ve been able to get connected to different attorney’s, consultants and connect with some of the people that helped them along the way. Connecting with someone that has a similar journey as us has helped us tremendously! We are extremely excited to adopt and can’t wait to embrace this new journey that God has planned for us. We already have so much love for someone we don’t even know yet! Our biggest hurdle we’ve crossed thus far is money. Adoption comes with a HUGE price tag and we need your help! We have been awarded a $2000 matching grant from Lookout Mountain Presbyterian Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. Every bit counts! If you can’t donate then please pray for our birth mom, our future child and for us. This journey has been hard on us but we know that God is control.
