Hi there! We’re Nick and Elizabeth Drollette. We married on September 7, 2013, and spent our first couple of years as newlyweds making memories together and traveling as much as we could. We both knew, even at a young age, that we wanted to adopt one day. As we began talking about growing our family, we thought we would have a couple of biological kids first then begin the adoption process. Unfortunately, getting pregnant did not come easy for us and after two years of infertility, we decided to begin the adoption process in September 2017. We began working through the mountain of paperwork involved in a Home Study and started fundraising. That February, the Lord made it evident that he was the one writing our story and we discovered we were pregnant just as we finalized our Home Study. Due to agency policy, we placed our adoption on hold as we awaited the arrival of our baby boy. William was born on October 25, 2018, and we have loved being his parents since that day.
Now that he’s a year old, we can’t wait to give him a brother or sister through the beautiful gift of adoption! We have been awarded a $5,000 matching grant through Frazer United Methodist Church's adoption fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans and we need your help. If you feel led, please consider donating (no amount is too small!!) to help us bring home our next baby boy or girl.
More importantly, we ask for continuous prayers for the beautiful birth mama who we will eventually match with. Prayers that she has peace in her heart and the strength she needs as she journeys through the process of adoption. Prayers that she knows how much we respect and love her. Please also pray for us as we wait to be matched, that we won't grow weary and keep our eyes fixed on the story our God is writing for us.
Until then, we'll just be here dreamin' about the next Drollette. :)
