Our adoption story began in 2014, when Emily visited India for the first time. A baby girl was placed in her arms and a seed was planted. In the following years, the seed began to take root and grow.
God called us to begin the adoption process in 2019. Sooner than we expected, as we had been married for just under two years, but we trusted His timing. Four years and a global pandemic later, we are excited to share that we have matched with a beautiful two-year-old girl and we are hopeful to meet her and bring her home by the end of this year!
If you are interested in walking along side us on this journey, we would love your support! Most importantly through prayer and encouragement. We also humbly request that you prayerfully consider partnering with us financially to bring our precious girl out of India's orphanage system and home to her forever family. All gifts given through Lifesong for Orphans are tax deductible and will be matched dollar per dollar up to $2500 thanks to a generous matching grant from Lifesong!
