We are Sam and Amanda Hann. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story! We began the adoption process in April of 2018 and are planning to adopt an infant from here in the United States. The whole adoption process could take 6-18 months start to finish, depending on how quickly we are matched with a birth mother. We want to bring you in on our journey to ask for your prayers and help. We know we definitely can’t do this alone and it will truly be by the grace of God.
From young ages we have both wanted to have a family and have had a heart for adoption. We have been trying to start a family since we got married and have struggled with infertility. After several unsuccessful fertility treatments we began to feel like the Lord was leading us to pursue adoption. We have been passionate about adoption even before our struggles with infertility, which is what makes this journey so exciting! We are already praying for our future birth mom and the sweet baby that we know God will provide us with.
Adoption is an amazing thing and it’s also a crazy expensive process! We would love to have your help in starting our family. We believe it takes a village! We are happy to answer any questions you might have. Please be in prayer for us as we proceed! #hannmeababy
