Patty Kyrgyzstan Adoption

Arianne Patty
Arianne Patty Joshua, Texas

Adoption has long been my dream of how to grow a family. As single woman living and working in East Asia with hopes of becoming a mother and raising children, I did not come to the decision to adopt lightly or quickly. I was determined to wait for a more traditional home environment to adopt, when I felt the Holy Spirit impress on me to begin this process and step out in faith.  This adoption journey began many years ago when  I traveled to another country and volunteered in an orphanage.  Since that time I have traveled to and volunteered in orphanages in six different countries and always knew it would one day be my joy to adopt.  So in 2017, God impressed on me that now is the time and in obedience, I began the adoption process. After months of paperwork, doctors visits, authentications, home study, adoption trainings, waiting, I have recently sent my dossier to Kyrgyzstan for translation and review.  I am now waiting my approval from Kyrgyzstan and then a referral (matched) from the Ministry of Social Development.  

As with all international adoptions it can cost between $35,000-40,000 including airfare, paperwork and required fees. As I live and work in East Asia, I also have a salary that is median for this area. So the cost of adoption is above my ability but I trust in the faithfulness of God and his heart for adoption. God has already provided for 2/3 of this process and I'm so happy to have received $3,500 matching grant funded by Legacy 685 at Houston First Baptist Church, an “Outside the Walls” partner who wants to support Lifesong adoptive families, this will absolutely be an incredible help in bringing my child home. My goal for the grant is January 2020 but of course funds will be accepted until the adoption is finalized and we are home together.

I'm so thankful to be a part of the body of Christ and value each of your friendships, prayers and support.  I look forward to keeping you updated and eventually introducing you to my child!

Waiting for Approval!!

November 10, 2019

It’s official! The Ministry of Social Development has my dossier and it is being processed for approval to adopt! yay!! So, now the waiting continues… this could take 6-8 weeks, then once I’m approved I will wait to be matched with a child (this could also take 6-8 weeks….) But a step in the forward direction. Praise the Lord. Please pray

1. For Kyrgyzstan and the officials in the Ministry of Social Development, that the processing goes smoothly and efficiently. 

2. For my child whoever they are, to be kept safe and healthy while we wait.

3. That I would trust the Father’s sovereignty over all.
