We are adopting and need your help!

How we got here…

Even while dating and in the early days of our marriage, we were having conversations about adoption. Adoption has never been a question of “if,” but always “when?” However, what we didn’t see coming was our struggle with infertility and how God was going to use it to speed up our adoption timeline. We are so excited to begin this journey now. On another note, Titus is so eager to have a sibling he keeps asking if a baby can grow in his belly!!

Why we want to adopt…

We are so compelled by the love God has shown us–adopting us as his sons and daughters, making us heirs and co-heirs with Christ (Gal. 4) that we are seeking to grow our family through adoption. We identify with adoption in a very personal way and believe God is opening an opportunity for us to adopt a child.

How you can help…

Would you please pray for us? Pray for wisdom and peace as we are currently navigating the adoption process. Most importantly, would you pray for the expectant mother and family of this child? We are new to this but are quickly learning the complexities and heartache involved in adoption. We want to consistently pray for our child’s family of origin.

The cost of an ethical, domestic adoption through an agency can be upwards of $40,000. We have some good news though.... we have recently been awarded a $4,000 matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans Adoption Fund! If you feel led to give a financial gift here to help us bring our child home, it will be matched by Lifesong and your gift will be used only for adoption expenses and is tax-deductible through this website.

This is a daunting amount of money to raise, but we believe that nothing is too great for the Lord, as he owns the cattle on a thousand hills, who determines the number of the stars and gives to all of them their names.

To God be the glory! Thank you for all your prayer and support!

Love,
Matt, Abby, and Titus

Adoption Update

January 28, 2021

Hello friends! Just wanted to send a quick update. Things have been really slow with our local agency. We have decided to extend our reach by hiring an adoption consultant. They have been wonderful to work with so far and we wish we would have worked with them sooner. We are learning so much in this process! Your continued support and prayers mean the world to us! We are still waiting on the child the Lord has for us. Please continue to pray for the expectant mother and child.  Please also pray for us, for patience and wisdom throughout this process.
