Norman’s Colombian Adoption

Lauren Norman
Lauren Norman Covington, Georgia

We are the Normans! Logan, Lauren, Jack Clay, Elizabeth, and Joshua. We are ordinary people living out God’s call on our family to make His name great throughout the earth. We feel that He has led our family to adopt (again) from Colombia as part of His love for the nations. We have always felt that our family should reflect the beauty of heaven: “behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…” Rev 7:9. We would be honored for you to share in this journey with us by praying, giving, and supporting us however you feel led.

While hosting 2 sisters over the summer of 2023 we heard God calling us to bring them into our family permanently. We cannot wait to share more about them with you as they become beloved daughters, sisters, granddaughters, nieces, and friends with our community.

PRAY: that we will be OFFICIALLY matched with our sweet girls soon!

GIVE: We have been honored to receive a matching grant of $8,000 from Legacy685 Adoption fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. This means that for every dollar given through Lifesong toward our matching grant, the Lifesong partner provided an equal donation, up to $8,000.

SUPPORT: share our story to others who you feel would want to walk this journey with us!

Logan and I celebrate the body of Christ coming together to support a child being welcomed into the arms of their forever family with eternal perspective of that child one day being in the arms of their Savior. We desire to be the family that follows Romans 10:14-15 and live dedicated to proclaiming Christ and teaching our children the name of Jesus so they may in turn go out and spread the gospel among the nations.

To those joining in this mission with us, we thank you. We pray “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26. We sing praises for how He has stirred it in your heart to be faithful with the resources and riches he has bestowed upon you. We look forward to being good stewards and continuing a heritage of obedience to Jesus.
