Where do we start? In our case, we started with 5 beautiful girls. Our lives were busy, happy and full. So, you can imagine our surprise when God nudged us to adopt. At first, we found it laughable. But in true God fashion, he kept pursuing and nudging us, reminding us that His plan is greater than anything we could imagine.
Our two oldest daughters went on a mission trip to Haiti with the local youth group and started our heart for the orphans there. Shortly after, our pastor discussed our church’s mission for orphan care and specifically, our dedication to helping the orphans in Haiti.
It soon became clear that God’s plan for us included something we had never imagined. Fast forward a couple years, after God has orchestrated everything from the people he put in our path to the help through the tough stuff, we have been matched with twin 8 year old boys! We are so excited to bring them home and see the plan that God has for their future. We will be starting weekly zoom calls with them soon and continue our plans to complete their adoption and bring them home within the year. Our home and our hearts are full!
So, now we come to your part in our story! We have been awarded a $5000 matching grant from AIM5 Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We appreciate your prayful giving to our journey!
