Edgar & Jessica Sanchez

are adopting a child from United States of America

We are thrilled to share that we are adopting!

Before we were even married we talked a lot about what building our family would look like and as we thought about our future children, adoption was a part of the dream we held close to our hearts. We didn't know much about the practical steps toward adopting, so we slowly began to learn more and kept praying.

The more we prayed and learned the more convinced we became that adoption was for us. We sensed a deep assurance that we not only wanted to become parents, but that we wanted to grow our family through adoption. We want to be used in whatever way God sees fit in the life of an expectant mother/family, we want to be of service to the adoption community, we want our hearts to be shaped by God (who adopted us into His family) and, of course, we want to welcome a new, precious life into our home.

We are in the midst of the joyful blurr of officially stepping into adoption and are doing everything we can to be prepared for all that is to come on this journey. As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. One significant surprise we encountered regarding finances is that adoption related costs can easily total up to $40,000 or more. This is why we have set a goal of $30,000 to help ease the financial burden that often overwhelms adoptive parents. In the US, 33% of couples consider adoption; however, 79% of the families are deterred by the high costs, and in the end only 2% adopt.

Our prayer is that by inviting you into this process, through prayer and/or a financial gift (both are deeply valuable to us!), you will experience the joy of being a part of the ministry and miracle of adoption. Our deepest desire is that you will be a part of the community that our child grows up loving (and being loved by), learning from, and making lifelong memories with. You mean so much to us and we are so thankful for your support.

    A bit of a crazy story, but last night we went to the AdoptTogether website with the intentions of looking at some family profiles. Of the 500+ pages, you guys just happened to be front and center on the first page (which at first we thought this has to be some sketchy iPhone thing). We refreshed the page multiple times just to see what the chances were and of course it didn’t happen again. I think He had a nice laugh at how shook we were. Anyway, as soon as that happened, we knew. I’m going to sound like Brannon Shortt here for a second, but “litchrally”, you guys are going to be the most incredible parents. Puts such a smile on our faces to think about the love this child will experience, and the Love this child will know (amen?!). Love you guys.
