Riber Family

Kristin Riber
Kristin Riber Cedarville, Ohio

“Imagine if Christian churches were known as the places where unwanted babies become beloved children. If this were the case across the board around the world, sure, there would still be abortions, there would still be abusive homes. But wouldn’t we see more women willing to give their children life if they’d seen with their own eyes what an adoption culture looks like? And wouldn’t these mothers and fathers, who may themselves feel unwanted, be a bit more ready to hear our talk about a kingdom where all are welcomed?” -Russell Moore 

We are drawn to the ministry of adoption that provides a home and family to children that need one. We first followed God’s call to adopt in June 2014 with the adoption of our daughter Selah and again in September 2016 with the adoption of our son Eli. We are thrilled to be walking this path for a 3rd time.  

We are looking to raise around $10,000 to use toward the adoption this  time around. We know that the Lord will take care of the finances of another adoption as we have seen Him faithfully do before. We have graciously been given a $3,500 matching grant from Grace Baptist Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans.  This means dollar for dollar up to the first $3,500 will be doubled! We will receive the money in an account Lifesong has made for us to use directly toward our adoption.

We thank you so much for partnering with us through prayer, support or encouragement as we continue down the adoption process. Pray that the Lord leads us to a perfect match only He can orchestrate. And please also pray for the sweet Birth Mom who God will place in our lives.   


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 “Riber 09993”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 9, 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.
