And Ethan Jona makes Six!

Jonathan Trevino Porter, Texas

The Trevino Family is growing!

  “Hey dad… mom… why aren’t we adopting?  Our family has enough love to give a kid that doesnt have a family.”

  This question came from one of our sons, after listening to the stories of many adoptive families during an ‘Adoption-Family’ focus weekend at our home church.  The question…  “Why dont we?”… began to resound deeply within the hearts and minds of all the people in our tribe, and it did not let up.  As a family serving Jesus in Asia, it was only a matter of time before we began to say YES to an orphan child that God would lead us to.

  This last December in 2017, we began a conversation with our friend and social worker about adoption possibilities.  She quickly responed, “I received 13 files last night of children who are needing a family, would you guys pray about THIS ONE?” We didn’t see 13 faces, we saw ONE. We knew in that moment Jesus was saying YES to something, to SOMEONE, that was in His heart and now is becoming part of ours. That someone is Ethan Jona. We are blessed to share with you all, our friends and family, that we are adopting a beautiful Chinese boy, Ethan, into our home and hearts.

   We are officially matched with Ethan, and are working hard to finalize the tons of paperwork necessary to see the process through. Our hope and prayer is that Ethan will be home with us by the end of this summer 2018. This is total leap of faith on our part, but to us he is worth jumping for!

   Would you pray with us for the adoption to go smoothly, for all the paperwork to go through in quick timing? Would you also consider being a part of the financial miracle that will bring Ethan home? Would you consider giving towards his adoption fund? If being a part of his provision story resonates with you, you can give a tax deductible gift here. We are simply trusting that what is needed will be provided every step of the way.

God is in this!

Blessings!

– Jonathan, Katie and our Tribe
