Our Family is Growing through Adoption

Ryan & Kristy Young Kansas City, Missouri

We are so excited to announce that we have started the journey of adoption!  Our family has been incredibly blessed with three amazing boys, but we feel like we have enough love in our hearts for one more.  Due to multiple miscarriages, we have been unable to have another biological child.  Our hearts’ desire is to welcome into our family a baby that needs a loving family.  Since May of this year, we completed our home study, filled out piles and piles of paperwork, hired an adoption consultant and applied to multiple adoption agencies.  We are currently in a season of waiting to be matched with a birth mom.  That could happen in days, weeks or months.  Once we are matched, the birth mom could be months away from delivering…or she may have even already delivered!  We would appreciate your prayers for God’s perfect timing and provision.  We have been awarded a generous $5,000 matching grant by Life Mission Church and LifeSong for Orphans.  If you would like to help us financially, all gifts up to $5,000 will be matched.


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Young 09288”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, Gridley, IL 61744.

Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.
