Completing the Knox Family

Roxanne Knox Franklin, Tennessee

Thank you so much for taking the time to let us tell our story.  Our desire to adopt began early in our relationship.  We knew this was something that we wanted to pursue and God continued to confirm that through conversations with friends and other people he placed in our lives at just the right time.

Our process began in the Fall of 2022 when we reached out to an adoption consultant and began the journey of lots of paperwork!  After completing our home study in Jan 2023, we began presenting mid-Feb.

We got the call that we were matched on April 18th and were told the baby was due in two weeks.  Then we were told later that same afternoon to start packing our bags as the baby may arrive in just a few days.  It was quite a scramble, but we worked together as a team to get on a plane to head to Utah!  Our sweet Elizabeth Celeste (“Lizzie”) arrived on Monday April 24th and we fell in love instantly.

We have been awarded a $5,000 matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans.  Additionally we have been awarded a $4,795 matching grant through Church of the City.  This means your contribution will go much further through their generosity!

Your donation will help us cover all costs associated with our adoption, incuding but not limited to agency fees, legal fees, home study and more. 

It’s hard to ask for help, but we have learned it is necessary during this process.  Adoption can be costly and we have trusted that God will provide.  He has already been so generous and kind to us.  If you are able to help, please know how much it means to us.  We do ask that you pray along with us for our birth Mom to know just how loved she is and for this precious child to know that she is surrounded by so many people who care.
