Peaden Family Adoption

Kerianne Peaden
Kerianne Peaden Clayton, North Carolina

We are Chad, Kerianne, Kinsley and Kylie Gray. International adoption was first birthed in Kerianne’s heart as a teenager doing mission work in Mexico. Chad became passionate about helping those less fortunate while doing mission work in Nicaragua. We have had many conversations about international adoption over the years yet never made the jump to pursue it until this past year. After struggling with infertility for two years, we prayed about next steps for our family and we were reminded of the dream God placed in our hearts years ago. He has called us to grow our family through adoption and we are so excited for this journey to our child. We believe that every child deserves a loving family and as believers we are called to love and care for the least of these.

We have been awarded a $2,500 matching grant from The Summit Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans.  This means that every dollar up to $2,500 will be doubled! Your generous gift will make a difference in the life of a child, and in our family. Thank you for helping us do our part to impact the orphan crisis.

“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” -Proverbs 16:9
