In 2009, I had the opportunity to visit an orphanage in India. We hung out with kids for almost 10 straight days and at the end of my time I found God had placed within me a desire to care and protect orphans. It wasn’t until Meg and I started dating that we both realized we had a heart for orphans and that we would one day be open to the idea of adopting either domestically or internationally. After our daughter Ansley was born we tried to get pregnant again for close to 2 years with no results, after a miscarriage we briefly decided to start the adoption process but was halted with news that Meg was pregnant with our 2nd child Jase (who is now 1). We are now to a point where our desire is to adopt a little girl from India, not with the mentality that we are going to rescue her but more from the stand point that we can share the love of Christ with her, and by the Holy Spirit, introduce her to THE RESCUER—CHRIST HIMSELF!
