Carmichael Family Adoption Journey!

Kasey Carmichael
Kasey Carmichael Kernersville, North Carolina

Hello, we are Noah and Kasey, along with our daughter, Quinn!

We first met in March of 2010, when Kasey started attending the same church as Noah. We immediately connected as friends, but since Noah was a few years older, we were just friends for several years. January 2012 rolled around, and Noah finally asked Kasey out on a date. We started dating that night and began our life-long journey together! We got engaged in November of 2012 and married at our church in June of 2013. We decided in January of 2017 that we were ready to start having kids. After a few years of fertility issues, and two miscarriages, God really started to lay adoption on our hearts. So, in 2019, we started to pursue adoption. Around the same time, we found out we were pregnant with our miracle baby, Quinn! We were so excited but also knew we would grow our family through adoption one day, and here we are! We are looking forward to adding to our family and getting to love this sweet baby!

We are adopting an infant domestically, and we are homestudy approved and waiting to be matched with the birth family God has for us.

Our goal of $30,000 includes:

- homestudy fees

- matching fees

- placement fees

- travel fees

We have received a $6,000 matching grant funded by Lifesong for Orphans! So everything donated up to that amount will be matched by them! We are so thankful for every donation and prayer lifted up for our family.
