We have always wanted more children in our home. We have worked with and among children and youth our entire lives. We made the decision in April to pursue adoption. Adoption has been a burden in our hearts for much of our lives. We had originally thought that we were to pursue international adoption, but the Lord has directed us domestically instead. We have our local homestudy completed and we are connected with an agency that will match adoptive and birth families. We hope to be matched with a siblings in this process. We are currently in the process of raising the funds to carry out this journey that God has called us to. We are super excited about this opportunity, but this journey is huge! The song “Confidence” by Sanctus Real has been our anthem. The chorus says,
“So give me faith like Daniel in the lion’s den
Give me hope like Moses in the wilderness
Give me a heart like David,
Lord be my defense So I can face my giants with confidence”
Our desire is to move forward with complete confidence and rely fully on the Lord for every step of the journey. We have been awarded a $4000 matching grant from Lifesong for Orphans Adoption Fund and we would love for you to parnter with us to bring our child home.
