Hill Family Adoption

Jessica Hill
Jessica Hill Union, Missouri

After feeling the tug to adopt for over 15 years, we are happy to say we are in the process of adopting from India. Our journey towards adoption began when we started dating and knew we wanted to get married. We both knew biological children may not be possible since Ryan had cancer and treatment at the age of 17. This was a non-issue as we were completely ok with growing our family through adoption. Even if we were able to have biological children Jessica always had the desire to adopt, hating that any child would have to grow up without a family. Much to our delight, we were blessed with 4 biological children.

While busy and content with our family, again and again, we have felt the tug that our family was not complete and should open our hearts and home through adoption. Growing in our marriage, as parents and in our faith, we felt God had been preparing us and in obedience we said yes, we will move forward with adoption. We have chosen to adopt a child with special needs from India and are open to either gender in the age bracket 0-5 years old. We chose India because of the sheer number of orphans who need a family. We know that God already knows the child(ren) that will join our family and are excited to see what the future holds.

We invite you to join us as we raise the necessary funds to bring our child home.  God has been so good, as we have been awarded a $4000 matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans.  That means that the first $4000 we raise will be matched.  

 


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 “Hill 8248”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, Gridley, IL 61744.

WE HAVE BEEN MATCHED

February 4, 2020

We have been matched with a precious 8-month baby girl.  She has a cleft lip and a heart defect we will navigate once she is home.  We have been told she will be receiving her first cleft surgery in India in the near future.  The fact that she can have surgery tells us that her heart is doing well at this time.  We have no idea on a timeframe for when we can bring her home.  It could be 4 months, it could be 18 months.  We are working on our end to bring her home as soon as we can.
