We are so excited to be adopting a child from Haiti!
Adoption is so beautiful and life giving! Joel and I do not see ourselves as saving a child, but being so lucky to be a part of THEIR story that God (Their Creator) wrote for their life. A redemption story. Since dating, we have talked about how one day we wanted to be a part of a child’s adoption story.
God led our hearts to Haiti and connected us to this beautiful country through work, visits, and friendships we have made!
We now have open doors to adopt from Haiti and are in a LONG, BUT VERY WORTH IT PROCESS. We are looking at it taking between 3-4 years. We are 2.5 years so far of paperwork, miracles, fundraising, extra jobs, and waiting.
We are CURRENTLY waiting on Haiti to match us with our child. We can’t wait for the future phone call that will change our family’s life forever! The process is tedious, but will ensure that we will adopt a child going through a safe and legal adoption.
Join our journey with updates, prayers, support, encouragement, or even hugs. We could use all the love we can get as we adopt 🙂
Thank you for your love!
Joel, Jenelle, Sydney, and Kai Mears
