Dorsey Seoul Sibling Adoption
is adopting from South Korea
We are excited to have begun the adoption process to bring a child to our home from South Korea!
As christians, we have been adopted into the family of God. We believe that God has called His people to provide for the least of these, to specifically reach out to those who can not take care of themselves. Even before we were married. we shared a desire to build our family through adoption. We have been blessed richly through the adoption of our son Daniel and believe God has brought us to a place where we are ready step out in faith and start this journey of bringing another child into our lives again.
Our family has been blessed with a legacy of faith built on service to others in and out of the Kingdom. It is this legacy and the conviction we feel that has lead us to this act of faith in spite of all of the unknowns.
We believe it takes a community to raise a child in the way of the Lord. We are at the
beginning of this process, but we ask that you would partner with us in this journey. Our
hope is that our community will commit to our child, even before we know their name.
Commit in prayer, commit in love and if so called commit financially to help bring our
This journey is a long and costly one. We will be funding our adoption from personal savings, fundraisers, grants and the love and support from family and friends. Adoption is costly and much of the associated fees are due at the start of this process.
We are asking our community of faith to partner with us by contributing to the fees that support this child's development and fostering while waiting to join our family. In addition, due to the pandemic, our travel costs are unpredictable at this time. Our fundraising goal has been updated to $35,500. We are planning for additional expenses due to the currently required isolation in South Korea and ask for your prayers over our little one for their health and safety.
Every donation is tax-deductible and will help make this adoption a success. Would you consider making a donation? Also, we would appreciate your willingness to share this with others who may want to participate.
We believe that by sharing this journey with our family, friends and community of faith, God may be glorified through the life of this child.
Please pray for our child and its foster family as we work to complete the process of
adoption and build a family for His glory.
Our adoption just got updated to Child Identified by Andrew and Julie Dorsey
We will be welcoming a little BROTHER to our family through adoption!
This is a big step and accepting his referral means we are close to using the funds collected through PureCharity/AdopTTogether. The funds collected here are for his care in Korea before he arrives home with us and they go straight to our adoption agency, Dillon International.
We are so excited and have been blessed that God chose him for us! Thank you all for your emotional, spiritual and financial support. We are truly blessed by a community who already loves him as much as we do.
Please continue to pray that our little man will keep growing and that God will bless him and his foster family as He God prepares our hearts for him and he for us.
Home Study is complete! by Andrew and Julie Dorsey
An update, finally.
I know you have heard this before, but 2020 has had its ups and downs. One thing we have been relearning this year is how to manage our sense of control. Throughout our family story, God has reminded us He is in control. We know this to be true, but as His children we must be reminded to trust in Him and know He will deliver on His promises as He always has.
This adoption has followed the same trajectory as with Daniel, albeit at a much slower pace. The pandemic set back our home study quite a bit and Julie got a new job this school year (praise) but we are grateful for our agency and social worker who have helped us complete these steps.
Our home study is on its way to Korea! This means all our necessary paperwork to receive a referral (matching) is complete and the process is progressing forward.
During the next 30-90 days we should receive a referral matching us to our child. This is an exciting time as we will get to see that beautiful little face for the first time and learn his/her story.
We ask that during this season you pray for that child and his/her foster family as we all find out what the future holds. Thank you for walking alongside us in this journey, though progress has been slow, we know who is in control and we praise His timing and providence as we wait to see who He has waiting for us.
