LeDuc Family Adoption

Karla LeDuc
Karla LeDuc Fort Collins, Colorado

We are Aaron and Karla and it is our hope that God would bring a child into our family by adoption. We are so excited to be where we are at and, Lord willing, to meet a new little one that will become a LeDuc!   We believe wholeheartedly that we have been called to be on this journey and that part of our life here on earth is to pursue adoption of a child who needs a safe, loving and fun home!  We are not super heroes or super parents but just two people who have decided that for us to love and care for the orphans means simply to be faithful to say “yes” to the obvious pull in our hearts to adopt, one step at a time.  We are expectant that great things are to come!

 

Our family lives in the beautiful state of Colorado.  Aaron is a Pastor and Karla enjoys working part time as a designer and staying home and working as a mom! We have four biological children ages 9,7,6 and 2.   They are each their unique selves but all hilarious, bright and have so much fun together (most of the time ;) ).  As a family we enjoy adventuring around town at the parks, going to the pool, playing in the backyard and being with friends and family.  Our home is a place where we love to be together playing games, hosting friends and family, enjoying meals around the table and resting.

 

For us the adoption journey has been full of excitement, learning, and prayer since we began this pursuit.  And, let’s not forget all the paperwork!  Over the past 6 months during the home-study we have been given many opportunities to read about adoption, talk with those who have been on this journey, and have been touched so deeply with all  that we have learned (and know most of the learning is yet to come).   All these things have greatly confirmed in our hearts that this adventure is meant to be part of our story and our future in some way. We are grateful to be a part of a wonderful church body and have so much support from our family and friends who are in this with us.  We are thankful to all of you reading this that have been praying along with us and sending encouragement our way. You are so appreciated and don’t underestimate for a second the impact you are also having on caring for the orphan by supporting us in so many ways!  

 

 

Another important and vital part of adoption is raising support to help us financially bring a child into our home and this page will help us to that end.  We are fully trusting God in His provision over this and know He is faithful to provide in all that we need. We are delighted to say that we have been awarded a $3500 matching grant from Mountain View Community Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans.THANK YOU for your generous giving and for all the many ways you have come alongside our family!

First experience in the matching process

March 21, 2018

We just wanted to fill you in on our first real experience with the matching process of this adoption.  About 10 days ago we were asked if it would be okay to show our profile book to a birth mom in Missouri who will be having a baby boy on April 2nd. (yes, less than two weeks from now!) We said yes and waited until today to find out that she chose another family for her child.   Aaron and I feel peaceful, humbled and thankful to have experienced this.  It has been hard to wait but such a blessing to be a part of praying for a birth mom and a little baby.  Please keep this little guy in your prayers – it is known that he will be born with a birth defect that will require surgery and significant time in the NICU after birth.    We trust that God has a plan for not only his life but the life of his birtharents and the adoptive family he will become a part of. And truly thankful to know and be sure that our family’s future is beautifully written as well!
