For years, adoption has been on our hearts. This year our friend from NCFCA speech and debate shared her family’s journey of adoption. When she mentioned there are more children to be adopted, I knew this was the direction we needed to go. I texted Matt and we both knew that now is the time! Our four kids had asked us about adoption over the years; our family is in agreement in this journey. We are so excited!
We were quickly matched with Mariatu, Hannah and Florence, ages 13, 12 and 10, who have lived four years together in a West African orphanage. We travelled to meet the girls and establish guardianship in June 2018. In January 2019 we’ll travel again to adopt the girls and project that we’ll be able to bring them home around March 2019. We are all so thankful to be working toward this goal, and we greatly appreciate the support that comes alongside as adoption is a costly but very worthwhile endeavor.
We have been awarded a $4500 matching grant from Chosen & Dearly Loved Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. The amazing matching grant will put us near the end of our fundraising needs! We are so excited how God has provided through so many. Our hearts are humbled through your generosity. Thank you so much.
