We are Chris & Amanda Seguritan and we have been hoping to expand our family ever since the summer of 2013, but God has had other plans for us. We discovered we were unable to have biological children due to Amanda’s half-working reproductive system, and so over the summer of 2016 we decided to have her go into surgery in September to have it removed for future health reasons. The surgeon came back with results that they found nothing wrong with her reproductive system and even found no reasons for future concerns, aside from some hormonal issues. Even after God’s miraculous work, it still seems improbable for us to have biological children. During the last few months of conversing with our doctor, we had talked about adoption and God tugged on our hearts to adopt even before we knew that we could not conceive.
We have journeyed through 6 months (beginning November 30th, 2016) of pursuing an internaitonal adoption of a toddler from the Philippines, but after 6 months of going through all of the paperwork, we found out that we could not get past the red tape of the Philippines government. We prayed about where to change our path and eventually felt led to pursue adoption of an infant from the USA instead. We have been working with Christian Adoption Consultants and quickly got through our Home Study process in only 4 months! We are now submitting our profile book and paperwork to different situations in order to hopefully receive a match of a newborn baby through Expectant Parents. We are looking forward to flying out of state when the time comes to meet our new little one. We also look forward to developing a relationship with their first parent(s) and encouraging on-going love, comunication, and blessings with them as the child continues to grow.
We want to thank you so much for all of your support and love – through prayers, encouragements, and even financiallt if you so feel led. We are so excited to share our journey with you and thank you for the adventure of a lifetime. We are so excited and ready to become first-time parents!
