Huntley Adoption Journey

Jared Huntley
Jared Huntley Alexandria, Virginia

We're the Huntley family (Jared and Jen)! We live in Alexandria, VA and I (Jared) serve as the pastor of a church plant in Washington, DC. Jen serves alongside me in the work of reaching DC with the Gospel and also has her own graphic design & videography business.

From before we were even married, we knew that we wanted to adopt children. We have always felt a strong conviction as followers of Jesus to provide a safe and loving home for children in need of adoptive families.

We believe that adoption is a beautiful picture of the Gospel and we know God has clearly called us as followers of Jesus to care for the widow and the orphan.

After several years of trying to have biological children, God has only increased and solidified our call to adopt. We really do see God's hand in our infertility and know that at least part of the reason is that He is confirming this call that was berthed in our hearts before we were ever married.

Through much prayer we are confident in God's call to adopt from Eastern Europe. We are so excited to welcome children into our family!

We know that there will be tremendous challenges throughout this adoption journey, but we also know that it will all be worth it. Adoption is not about filling our needs. Adoption is about meeting the needs of these vulnerable children and choosing to love them unconditionally.

One thing we know for certain is that we cannot do this alone. We need your help as we take this adoption journey. We are truly walking by faith and trusting God to provide and we believe He will. And one of the many ways God provides is through the kindness and generosity of others.

Would you please consider supporting us to help us bring our children home? First, please support us by praying for us and for our children. We are prayerfully hoping to adopt siblings (2) but are open to one (1) as well.

Secondly, would you please support us financially by making a contribution to our Lifesong fundraising page? We need to raise $28,000 total, and Lifesong has agreed to match up to $4,000 in donations!

Thank you so much for visiting our Story and thank you for considering supporting our adoption journey!

Love,

Jared & Jen

Hey everyone! We’re excited to share that our dossier has been submitted and approved! We are now just waiting to be matched with children. Due to COVID-19, things may slow down a bit, but thankfully adoptions are still happening and we could be matched at any time! We are also getting closer and closer to meeting our fundraising goal. Thank you to all who have so generously given!
