We are in the process of adopting a sweet teenage girl from Colombia! 
We are beyond excited and have been doing everything we can to prepare to welcome this sweet girl into our home!

We are so grateful to have been awarded a $4000 matching grant from Colonial Heights Baptist Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans!  In order to utilize this matching grant, your help is needed and deeply appreciated!

Our Story
In giving a little background to our decision to adopt, we were of the belief that our family was complete as God has blessed us with two precious daughters. However, in September 2018 we were challenged with an opportunity that we didn’t see coming and gifted to participate in an orphan hosting program called Bloom.  Immediately, our hearts were drawn to our future daughter and began praying daily for her.  In December 2018, we hosted her in our home for 2 weeks and we all knew she was to be a part of our family.

Through much prayer and wrestling with God over the decision, we decided to not live out our faith in fear one more day and answer God’s call on our family.  We love our future daughter and she needs a family…what better picture of the Gospel can we share with her than adopting her into ours just as our Heavenly Father has adopted us into His through Christ.

WE NEED YOUR HELP in this mission to share the Gospel with this precious girl and give her a forever family through adoption.  As you know, the adoption process is costly.  We are so thankful for those who have already locked arms with us to help raise the majority of funds needed but there is still a minimum of $10,000 left in this process.  We are hoping to travel to Colombia sometime in November to bring her home.  

Please commit to pray for our family and future daughter during the final steps of this journey and please prayerfully consider giving generously.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping us do for one what we wish to do for all!  We appreciate you!

If all for one,
