Preparing to Adopt

Benjamin Walker
Benjamin Walker Bloomington, Indiana

We got married in January of 2015 and looked forward to starting a family. After three years it became evident, following tests and treatments, that growing our family was unlikely to happen biologically.

Early on in our marriage we talked about adoption and found that we both thought of it as a wonderful way to grow a family, particularly considering that as believers in Jesus Christ we also have been adopted into God’s family. We are excited to be pursuing a domestic infant adoption. The home study is complete, our profile book is turned in, and as we wait to be matched we are working to raise the money required for adoption. It has been such a blessing to witness the outpour of love and support by friends and family!

While we believe it will be well worth it, we’ve found the road to adoption is long and expensive. We have generously been awarded a matching grant from Lifesong in partnership with Hands of HopeIf you wish to support us financially, any amount donated through this page will automatically be matched by Lifesong up to $2500. We are grateful for any amount you are able to give. Thank you for all your support!


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”. In the memo line please write “Walker 8141”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.

Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.

“Katie and Ben, We are hopeful that your progress toward adoption goes smoothly and quickly and will soon successfully grow your family. Trusting God to bless you according to His good plan. Ben, Corinne just completed her PhD process - it is grueling and frustrating and feels like it takes forever... but you are on the home stretch. Praying you will finish strong with no bumps in the road. We care! Catherine and Harry”
