Our Adoption Story

Paul Roland
Paul Roland Lexington, South Carolina

We began our adoption journey in 2017.  Children weren't initially in our plans for life, but as we got older God started pulling us in that direction.  Natural birth unfortunately wasn't an option for us so we began to discuss the option of adopting.  We've always viewed family as something that is more than just a blood relative, and we want to provide a loving home to a child so they will have the family that we have had the joy of experiencing.

Of course we also want to be parents which is ultimately why we started this journey to begin with.  So far we have had so many friends and family step up to help us out.  Whether it be a monetary donation or donating items for the two yard sales we did.  We have felt so much love from so many people and we greatly appreciate all that everyone has done for us!

With that said we are close to reaching our monetary goal for the adoption fees.  We are so close and appreciate the help in pushing us over the top.
