Our family has had a heart for caring for vulnerable and at risk children long before we began pursuing adoption. We both have experienced the grace and love of Jesus and being adopted into God’s family, and we see adoption as a beautiful picture of the Gospel. We see the call in Scripture to care for orphans and vulnerable children, and we feel one way our family has been called to do this is through adoption. God has been growing our hearts for adoption and at risk children for a long time.
Adoption isn’t just another thing our family wants to do, it is in an extension of hearts to care for the vulnerable children in our neighborhood and around the world. We have chosen to adopt from Haiti because there are more than 30,000 orphans in a country of 10 million. We know that adoption is not the answer for this country, and we rally behind causes like maternal healthcare, child sponsorship, and nutrition programs that seek orphan prevention. However, the reality is that there are children who need homes and families, and we long to provide a safe home for children that need one. We have invited many in our community and church to join us in praying for our little ones in Haiti and hope to encourage others to step out in faith in choosing adoption. However, the reality is that adoption is very expensive, approximately $60,000 to adopt two children and we are trusting God to provide in amazing ways as well as committing to be good stewards of what he has given us.
