We are so grateful to have received a $4000 Matching Grant from Lifesong to help us grow our family through adoption! That means that any donations we receive through this link will go into our Lifesong account and be matched dollar for dollar by Lifesong up to $4000. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us & for the expectant parent(s) who may choose us. Please continue to pray!
If you don’t know our story, we have felt drawn to adoption throughout our lives and always felt like it would be a part of our story. In August of 2017 we began actively talking with agencies and educating ourselves as we felt like God was calling us to step out in faith to grow our family this way. In November of 2017, at a routine exam, we learned some new information about Amanda’s reproductive health that made it clear that it would be healthiest and wisest for her not to carry another pregnancy, and it was a sweet confirmation that we were meant to walk the road of adoption we’d already begun. Here we are, almost a year and a half in from our first steps toward adoption and we are an actively waiting family with our agency. As we hope for some type of openess in our adoption, we are excited to see who God adds to our family, and we are praying specifically for the expectant parent(s) who may choose us and their sweet baby. Our mantra throughout this journey has been to choose “Faith Over Fear”…faith over fear in the decision, faith over fear in the waiting, and a lifetime of faith over fear to come. If you have questions, please feel free to ask us!
