Even before we were married, we had each hoped that adoption would be part of our life journey. We knew we wanted to adopt but just didn’t know the when or how of it. In our 13-years of marriage, we have been blessed with one child, and we are beyond thankful for the miracle and gift our son Asher is to us! After a long journey, much waiting, and a deeply challenging pursuit, it seems he will be our only biological child.
We believe wholeheartedly in the sanctity of life, and feel called to support this gift by offering our home and lives to a little child in need of a family.
As beautiful and good as adoption is, it is expensive ($35,000+) and is an impossible number for us to reach on our own. John and I have been blessed by much love and support as we have begun this process and we would love to have you a part of this new journey.
