Thanks so much for stopping by! It is our great joy to tell you about our adoption story! In March of 2019, after years of serving as foster parents with the intent to adopt, we stepped out in faith to begin the process of an international adoption from China.
At that time, and even now in the midst of the many uncertainties with the pandemic, we know the kind and wise hand of our Heavenly Father has guided us each step of the way. In January of 2020 we began pursuing a little girl we saw on an advocacy page identified as #CallieAtBethel.
Despite her many physical challenges as well as the emotional struggles that come with being moved many times, she is often described as happy, helpful, and very playful. We so look forward to having her in our home when the Lord allows us to travel to get her!
We are so grateful to have been awarded a $3500 matching grant from Legacy685 Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. Legacy 685 is a ministry of Houston’s First Baptist Church. Legacy 685 was established in 2008 to provide connection, community, and funding to families compelled to move toward the miracle of adoption in compassion for the orphan. Because of their generous support, all donations we receive up to $3500 are matched!
