Thanks for being a part of our adoption story!
We both had discussed adoption prior to getting married, but had not given it much thought the first couple years of marriage. Then, in late 2016, the Lord began to stir in both of our hearts. Between the suffering on the news and seeing the unwanted pregnancies and children in Ally’s clinic, the Lord started drawing us more towards adoption. We sat down together and searched what scripture has to say about adoption. We came to the conclusion that while everyone may not be called to adopt, we are all commanded to care for the fatherless in some capacity. We felt that pursuing adoption was the way we could be obedient to God’s command.
Our process was kickstarted just a couple months later when a patient came into Ally’s clinic at 36 weeks pregnant and wanting to give her baby for adoption. We considered it, prayed, and decided to offer ourselves as parents. While the patient never followed up to any appointments, the process prepared our hearts more quickly for adoption. A couple months later, we submitted an application to Nightlight Christian Adoptions.
Now, as we’ve completed our home study, we are excited to bring home our child!
Just a couple months after completing our homestudy, we were matched and brought home our precious son, Miles. We are tired, but Miles is doing very well and we are so grateful and blessed. We have raised most of the money needed, but there are still a few sizeable fees that need to be covered. Thank you all for everything. The Lord has provided in some amazing ways.
