LeBoeuf Adoption Journey Revised

Rachel LeBoeuf
Rachel LeBoeuf ORLANDO, Florida

The LeBoeuf family is adopting again! We are so excited to go on this journey to become a family of four. About 5 years ago we were led to begin our family with adoption, and what a beautiful adventure it has been. We have learned and grown so much, and we are thankful every day that we are part of this collective family. 

However, our hearts have changed from the beginning of our journey 5 years ago. We were struggling with infertility, and at that time all we wanted was to have a family. Now, having experienced all we have, we have realized that God has given us our life mission. We feel very strongly that we want to adopt a second time, yes to grow our family, but to give an orphan a home. Our hearts desire, in the future, is to foster older children needing stability, love, comfort, and encouragement. 

“A Father to the fatherless, a Defender of widows, is God in His Holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families.” Psalm 68:5-6a

Brian is an elementary school teacher and is adored by most all of his students. He has always had a heart for children, and all of his careers have reflected as such.

Rachel is a veterinary technician and has worked with animals most all her life. She has dreamed of having children and sharing with them her passion for life.

Our son, Isaac, is an energetic, outgoing, animal loving, leader at only three years of age. He is very excited about becoming a big brother and will be fantastic at it. He has been one of the best blessings in our lives. We have a truly unique story of how we became a family, and we are honored that it is ours. 

One important lesson we have learned is that raising a family is also about community, and we are grateful for ours. This is a time that we step out in faith and ask for help in fundraising to make our family grow. Thank you for your prayer, financial assistance, and being our community.

“May the Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.” Num. 6:24-26

Rooted in Love Conference

January 31, 2020

Hello all!

We hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday season!

As many of you know, at Thanksgiving we had the unfortunate news that our local agency was unable to financially stay open as an adoption agency. Fourtunatly, they will still be able to fund the Women’s Crisis Center to help the birth mothers, which is really important to us as well. However, they were able to find another agency that has similar structure and beliefs and they were able to take us on. We are very excited to journey with them! 

One of the things we needed to complete was a conference in Alabama called Rooted In Love. It was fantastic and really allowed us to feel connected to them and also made a community of others that are in this journey with us. 

Please continue to pray for our birthmother and child as we embark on this.                                 1 Peter 5:6 “Humble yourselves, therefore, under G-d’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.”

Thank you for supporting us! We love you all!
