We are so excited that our family will be growing again!
When we visited orphanages in China four years ago, we were amazed to see how many young boys filled those crowded rooms. Rachel was the last girl on her floor and it broke our hearts to leave those precious faces behind. Even upon leaving China, we expected we might one day try to get back to China for another child.
After much prayer, we decided to start the journey again to bring home another child. We will be traveling this summer to China to bring home our son Luke. He will be two years old this June. This precious boy is living in an orphanage and we desperately want him home to be a part of our family. His four older siblings are eagerly anticipating his arrival.
We are trying to raise funds to cover part of our adoption expenses. The total cost for this adoption is around $35,000. We are trying to raise $10,000 of that. We have been awarded a $2500 matching grant from Miriam’s Heart Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans for which we are so grateful.
Thank you so much for being part of this journey.
