God has restored our hope of becoming parents through adoption after years of infertility. Our marriage and our faith are stronger because God led us through some long and difficult years. Many of you were a great support to us during that time. In 2020, God began to grow the idea of adoption into a reality in our hearts. Once we moved to Madison in 2021, we officially began the formal process of adoption with our home study. Since then we have signed up with a few agencies and have begun to see adoption situations and present our profile in response. We are waiting for the child(ren) God has for us. Thank you for praying for us!
May the God of all hope fill you with peace and joy as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope, by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
