We are the Wood family from a small town in Hartwell, Ga. We are so excited to announce that we are going back to Colombia to add to our family. We could not be happier, and are praying that God provides and guides us the whole way.
A little bit about us. My husband and I have unexplained infertility. We have gone through many tests, and there is no medical reason why we cannot have a baby. We have been trying for over 6 years now. After much prayer and consideration, we felt God leading us to China where we adopted our now 3 year old son in November 2017. He is the light of our lives and we are so blessed to be called his forever family. Shortly after we got home from China, in August 2018, I shockingly got pregnant but ended up miscarrying at 8 weeks. It was a very hard time for us but the Lord is so GOOD! He used this unexpected blessing in our lives to light the fire in us that we wanted our son to have a sibling. Again, after more prayer and guidance, we felt the Lord calling us to Colombia to adopt.
We wouldn’t be able to adopt again if it wasn’t for the support, prayers, and love from our family and friends. We have a big goal to reach for us to get to Colombia, and we know we will be able to get there! We currently have been given a $2500 matching grant from First Baptist Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans. We are looking to raise at least that amount and even more! Thank you in advance for your sweet donation to our adoption. Words cannot express how grateful and blessed we are for every penny.
