We are Charlie and Kristen Diaz and we are currently in the process of adopting a sweet baby from the US. We have both always wanted to adopt, even before we met five years ago. On our first date, we both realized our overwhelming passion to adopt one day! Kristen worked as a case manager in foster care and is now a teacher. Charlie grew up in an impoverished situation and always saw a lot of children, like himself, that needed a loving family. After Kristen suffered two miscarriages in 2020, we really started praying and asking the Lord if the time to adopt was now. He answered that the time was now, so we started our adoption journey.
We began working with Cradled in Grace in the middle of January 2021 and we have been working really hard to fundraise our goal amount for the adoption. We have been in awe of how the Lord has provided throughout the fundraising process. We are really relying and leaning on the Lord throughout this entire process and we are praying for the Lord to guide us with our decisions we will be making. There are so many unknowns and a lot of waiting during this process, but the Lord has given us peace of mind and is guiding us each step of the way.
We have generously been awared a $3,000 matching grant from We Care, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We are so extremely grateful for this grant. This is just one of the ways we have seen God working throughout this process and has confirmed our adoption story. Would you consider joining our journey through prayer and/or a financial gift that is significant to you?
