About a year after we were married, we both felt that God was calling us to start a family. God had given the us so much love, it was time to start expanding that beyond the two of us. After our initial miscarriage we explored our fertility treatment options. This road led to two additional miscarriages, and a sense of hopelessness.
At this point we took a look at the community around us, and realized that God had placed us in a community that is tremendous in orphan care. This shifted our focus to exploring orphan care opportunities. It became clear very quickly that God was calling us to start our family through infant adoption. Immediately as we made this decision our hope was restored, we were going to be able to start a family!
Since announcing our intentions, we have had an outpouring of support from our friends and family. Donations of time, energy, garage sale items, and finances have been overwhelming. We cannot tell you how grateful we are for all of the continued support we are receiving.
Many of you have asked us how you can support us financially through this long and expensive process. Lifesong has generously awarded us with a $2,500 matching grant. Any dollar donated through this page will count towards that matching grant. We truly appreciate every dollar that is donated as each dollar is a huge blessing towards this family. Thank you all for the support you have already shown us and the continued support as we move forward.
