Adoption has been on both of our hearts for years, and it’s been part of our plan for our family since before we were married. After spending just over a year volunteering in Thailand, Landon and I moved back to the U.S. in early 2017 and had our daughter Beatrix in August of that year.
After lots of discussion and prayer, we decided that our next child would join our family through international adoption. We were recently matched with a 2 1/2-year-old boy who loves cuddles, peekaboo and playing outside. We are so excited to become his mom and dad, and for Beatrix to be his sister.
We estimate that the entire adoption process will cost around $36,000. That amount seemed impossible at first, but once we received his referral and saw his picture we knew we had to find a way. We’ve already seen God provide for this adoption in totally unexpected ways, and we believe he will continue to provide. Thank you for sharing in our story and helping us bring our son into our family!
