Fawley Family Adoption Journey

Katie Fawley
Katie Fawley Winona Lake, Indiana

We are Kenny and Katie Fawley and we have been blessed with two beautiful girls, Haley and Marcy. The following describes where we are at in our adoption journey from Eastern Europe.

Going into our marriage, we knew if there was a way that we would be able to adopt someday we would do it, but at first glance it seemed like a daunting and impossible process. After a few years of researching and praying, and the Lord aligning our hearts together towards adoption, we stepped out in faith and began the process in December 2015. To most people, including ourselves, knowing that an international adoption could cost around $40,000 plus was very intimidating, as we don’t have that sitting around. We decided to take it one step at a time and start with the application fee, an amount we were able to pay upfront. After taking that step, the Lord has continued providing every step of the way thus far.

In July of 2016, our paperwork was officially registered in Eastern Europe and the real waiting began. There was a lot of praying, waiting, paperwork updates, etc. and the time continued to pass by. Finally, on December 12th, 2018 we received THE call. We have been matched with one year old twins, a boy and a girl, and we couldn’t be more excited about bringing them home and into our family. God is so faithful and His timing is perfect!

In November, we were surprised with a generous matching grant for $3000 from our church, Mission Point’s Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We would love for you to be a part of our story in bringing our children home. Would you consider giving towards our adoption? Any financial gifts that are given will be matched dollar for dollar up to $3000 and will be tax deductible. If the matching grant is exceeded, the funds that come in will still go towards our adoption. Thank you so much for your love and care for our family!


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 “Fawley 7992”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, 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.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.
  • Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Individual donations of $50 or more and yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Receipts for donations under $50 will gladly be sent upon request.
