We adopted our oldest son from Ethiopia. The process has taught us so much. There have been many painful tears but also tears of joy and glimpses of beauty and redemption from the brokenness. We also have two biological sons. We love spending time outdoors as a family, serving at our local church and in the local community.
We are excited to share that we are currently in the process of adopting again domestically with an organization we are thrilled to partner with, Amazing Grace Adoptions & Orphan Care, in Raleigh, NC. Even though adoption is hard we believe God has called us to adopt again to put the gospel on display. We were outside the family of God and because of what Christ has done we have been grafted into God’s family. As, Lord willing, we bring another child into our family it is our hope and prayer to see another son or daughter come into the family of God as well.
We realize we cannot walk this journey alone. We are grateful for a church family and community that prays for and supports us. We greatly appreciate your prayers and financial support!
Blessings in Christ,
Chad & Holly
