Adoption is a story of unmerited favor and grace.
Our hearts have been longing for the opportunity to adopt internationally for many years, and we are excited to invite you to join us on this journey!
The principle of Adoption for our family is rooted in our faith. We have experienced unmerited favor and grace, and wish to extend that same favor and grace to a child or children who need a family.
We can provide a family for a child that potentially has faced immense difficulties. A large number of children in India are considered unwanted or lost. Many face outcasting, persecution, and trafficking. In India, an estimated 135,000 children are trafficked yearly, and over 20 million children are considered to be orphaned.
Lord willing, it is our hope that we will expand our family by one or two more children through this adoption journey.
Currently, we have been blessed to have two biological children, Luke & Miriam. COVID-19 is the pandemic that delays everything, but fortunately, it did not end this journey. India has opened its doors again, and we want to provide a family in the midst of chaos and uncertainty.
We need help!
Here is how you can help our family:
We need prayer!!! The process is challenging, but we know that ultimately God is in control. Please keep our family in prayer throughout this entire process!!!
2. Financial Need
Adoption can be a financial burden, and there is an active need to help with this area. The costs of international adoption from India can be as much as $50,000.00. We have received a matching grant of $7,000.00 through Lifesong for Orphans.
Would you consider partnering with us and making a tax-deductible donation to help with the financial burden of our adoption? Details are below.
Thank you for considering partnering with us in our adoption journey. Lord willing, our family will expand- and we hope that you will have a hand in that expansion with your support 🙂
