We are Michael and Michelle Sheridan, and we are excited to share with you the story of our adoption journey - where we are now, and where we hope to be in near future!
We truly believe that God has been preparing us for the time when we would open our home in love to a young one in need. You see, we're unable to have biological children, and for a long time, we felt that maybe God wasn't going to bless us that way. Seeing our family and friends raising children, we felt the desire for children, but thought that door was closed for us. Let's face it - adoption is a BIG deal and there are numerous challenges involved, so admittedly, we were scared to take that step for a long time.
However, in the last year, He has really been speaking to our hearts. A stronger and stronger urge to pursue adoption built up in our minds and we finally decided to step out in faith and trust that if God wanted this for us, He would clear our path.
Right now, we are pursuing a domestic adoption and hope to bring an infant boy or girl into our family soon. We are working with Faithful Adoption Consultants to find that special match that the Lord has planned for us, and are praying daily for the expectant mom and baby that we'll meet one day. We would love for you to join with us in those prayers and share in this special time with us!
