Our passion for adoption comes from our pro-life convictions, the heart God clearly shows throughout the Bible for His people to care for the least of these, and the beautiful representation adoption is of the Gospel and our relationship with God.
“In love, he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.” (Ephesians 1:5-7)
We have been blessed to be part of two churches–Cornerstone in Ames and Crossroads (our current church in NM) who have a big vision for adoption and orphan care. And through those bodies, we have gotten to be part of joining in on some of the adoption journeys of friends and brothers/sisters in Christ.
After having our daughter and son biologically, we desire to grow our family again, this time through adoption.
We are working with a faith-based referral agency and are in the process of matching with a birth mom. We don’t have an exact timeline, but we expect to bring a baby boy or girl home in the next 3-6 months and expect our costs to be about $35,000-40,000.
We would love for you to support our family through prayer and encouragement. Pray for us to have God’s peace and trust God’s timing. Please pray for our babe and his/her birth parents. If you are interested, we’d love for you to prayerfully consider making a contribution to us to help support agency, travel and medical costs.
Right now your giving can be doubled by giving to our Lifesong family account. Lifesong has generously giving us a $4000 MATCHING GRANT, so all donations up to the first $4000 will be matched for us to use for travel, agency payment, legal fees, etc.!
Our biggest prayer is that God would be glorified!
