God has been working in our hearts for several years regarding adoption. A few years ago we sat down with some friends over dinner and they shared their adoption story with us and ever since we have been praying and seeking God for what He could be asking from us. We started talking to our kids about it right away and they were so open and excited about us adopting.
Around July of 2017, we felt like God put Colombia on our hearts. Since then we have seen confirmation of that in so many ways. We chose to work with Lifeline Adoption Services, a Christian adoption agency out of Birmingham. As we talked with several friends who have adopted, this agency came highly recommended and they have been amazing to work with so far. In June of 2018, we were asked if we would consider hosting a sibling group in our home as a part of their program to advocate for orphans. They are sisters, ages 9 and 6, from Colombia, Latin America. We were able to spend time with them in our home for two weeks and learn about their story and we are now on the path to adopt them.
God has been so faithful during this journey! We are hopefully traveling in August to get the girls and we still need around $13,000. Thank you in advance for your prayers and support.
John 14:18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
