One Pho’nomenal Experience: Our Vietnam Adoption Journey

Jessica Switzer Edmond, Oklahoma

Hello! Let us begin by introducing ourselves. Our names are Gregg and Jessica Switzer. We are from Oklahoma and have been married for 2 years now. Gregg works for the City of Edmond Parks and Jessica works as a 2nd grade teacher for the Oklahoma City Public School District. Before we were married we had a strong desire to begin growing our family through adoption.  We feel that adoption is a direct representation of God adopting us through Christ . In scripture, we are called to care for orphans and widows and we truly sense that God has uniquely placed adoption on our hearts as a way to do so.   We are in the process of pursuing an older child adoption from Vietnam.  We are so excited to bring our child home; however, the cost of adoption is very high.  We are beginning the process of applying for grants as well as fundraising in our area; however, we still could use support. If you feel called to give please remember all donations will go towards paying agency and government fees along with continued support for our child prior to coming home with us. An added bonus is that we have been awarded a $3500 matching grant from Karis Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans!  Donations are also tax deductible through Lifesong as well. We are trusting the Lord to provide for every step of the way and any support would be a huge blessing to us and our family!


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Switzer 8150”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.

Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.
  • Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Individual donations of $50 or more and yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Receipts for donations under $50 will gladly be sent upon request.
