Hi ya'll! Welcome to our site and thank you for your prayers and consideration to support us in our adoption journey. We are Bill & Celeste and have 2 children at home now. We are hoping and praying to double that number this October - TWINS!!
It is by God's sovereignty that we came to adoption. Ephesians 1:5-6 says, "In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved." In realizing our own adoption through Christ in Scripture, we felt God put it on our heart to share in the beauty of adopting a child needing a home. During that time, God has specifically spoken to us in very unique ways that twins are what He had in mind for us. One of the ways, is when our 2 older kiddos learned that we were interested in adoption, they were asked if they wanted a brother or a sister. They both separately yelled, "BOTH". Then when brought back together, we told them and they said, "wouldn't it be great if they were twins?".
There are so many other ways that we have seen God's hand at work through this journey... And I'm sure if we've talked to you about it, we've given you an ear-full ;).
If you feel led to support us financially, we would greatly appreciate it. More importantly, we ask for prayers throughout this journey for us, for mama/dad and for the babies. We know that prayers have been what have sustained us thus far and that the Lord answers in miraculous ways!
Praise God, we have received a matching grant from the Josiah's Adoption Fund and Lifesong! This means that every dollar up to $5,500 will be matched!
Thank you so much!
