Minor Family Adoption

Josh and Ashley
Josh and Ashley Kingsport, Tennessee

We have known that We wanted to adopt someday for as long as we can remember, but over the last few months, through much prayer, the careful study of God’s word, and mostly the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, we know that the time is now and we have answered this call that the Lord has placed on our life. Stories like the loyal love that David showed to Mephibosheth in 2 Samuel 9, the redeeming love that Boaz showed to Ruth and Naomi in the book of Ruth, and then the ultimate redemption through His blood and ADOPTION that Jesus showed to us as described by the apostle Paul in Ephesians 1, are a few parts of scripture that the Lord used to do this work in us. Our desire is to demonstrate HIS love to the fatherless and motherless. “We love because HE first loved us.” 1 John 4:19  We truly feel like God has called us to adopt now and we have decided to be obedient to this call.  We are looking forward with great anticipation to meeting the child that God has for our family.

We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a $3000 matching grant from Chosen and Dearly Loved Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans.  All donations given through this website or by check (with Minor 7781 on the memo line) to the mailing address on this website will go towards helping us to get the full amount of $3000 to be matched!  We are very grateful for this grant and we are excited to see what God will do through our friends and family to bring Judah home to his forever family!

Minor Family Adoption

Exciting news!!! Our paperwork has now been complied to form our dossier which has been sent to the Department of State.  Once authenticated, it will be sent to the Chinese Consulate and then off to China to the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption.  Once everything is final and approved we will receive a travel date (hopefully in December) and travel to MEET OUR SON AND BRING HIM HOME!!!
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated financially and especially for those of you who have been faithful to pray for us.  We sincerely appreciate you all for being a part of Judah’s story of adoption. 
 
Much Love,
Ashley and Josh
