Aaron and I talked about adopting one day since before we were married. This desire was prompted in us by a combination of our understanding and gratitude for how God has adopted us as his children, an understanding of God's call for believers to care for orphans and also seeing other families that we have known adopt. In 2019, we began to explore adoption through Lifeline Children's Services and ultimately felt our hearts called to pursue a medical special needs child in India! My (Susie's) sister, Anna and her family are also adopting from India and we are so thrilled for cousins to share their heritage and culture!
In July, we were matched with a precious little 16 month boy!! We are working through the steps of US immigration approval and then will proceed through the court process in India. We are so eager to bring him home! We are thankful that even though COVID has brought challenges, our process has continued to move forward.
Will you join us in praying for our little one in India and for a smooth and quick process to adopt him and bring him home? Will you also consider joining our team and partnering with us financially? We are so thankful to share that we have received a matching grant from our church, Faith Presbyterian Church! Contributions given to our Lifesong account will be matched by Faith up to $5000!
