Jackson Family Adoption

Christy Jackson
Christy Jackson Plano, Texas

We are the Jacksons…Spencer, Christy, and Haston!  We’ve always dreamed of having a big family and the Lord has made it clear that adoption is the right next step for us to grow our family and promote Haston to big brother status.

As you all probably know, pursuing adoption comes with a lot of financial responsibility.  We recently learned that we were awarded $7000 in matching grants from Karis Adoption Fund and Lifesong for Orphans.  This is HUGE!  We have also been saving and applying for grants, but that may still not be enough to cover everything.

We’ve learned through our journey in foster care that while not everyone is called to open their homes to foster or adoptive children, most people want to help in ways that they can.  Therefore, we wanted to share our story and provide a tangible way for others to help, if they feel led.

More than anything we ask that after you learn about our family and our journey to grow our family through adoption, that you will take a moment to pray for us.  Please pray for us to be patient while we wait on the Lord’s timing, that we would trust the story He is writing for our family, and that He would prepare our hearts to welcome this baby and their birth family into our family.  When you pray for us, please remember to pray for the birth family.  Pray that they would have wisdom in the decision making process and not make any decisions out of fear, for comfort as they wrestle with this decision, and more than anything that they would feel seen, loved, and supported during the entire process.

Thank you for loving us, cheering us on, and praying!  Stay tuned with us as we wait to see what the Lord is up to in the Jackson Household!
