are adopting a child from United States of America

WE ARE ADOPTING!

It's hard to believe it's actually happening! We are beyond excited (and nervous!), and are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a sweet new life into our home. If you know us well, you know that adoption has always been a part of our story: from working for a Christian adoption agency, to having adopted siblings, to over 15 years of conversations and prayer…it feels only right that this is how our family will grow.

As part of our adoption process, we have started a crowdfunding campaign. It may surprise you to hear that adoption-related costs can easily total up to $70,000 or more (yes, you read that right). In fact, that is the primary reason why so many who consider adoption decide against it. We admit, those numbers are intimidating for us as well, but we truly believe that this is the journey God has for us.

We currently have $25,000 put towards the adoption process. While that is a good start, it is a fraction of the total cost. We know that this journey will require grant-writing, continued saving, and sacrifice on our part. We also know we absolutely cannot do it alone. And while that is terrifying, it is also such a beautiful thing to lean on our community to bring this child home. Would you partner with us?

We hope that by by donating towards our adoption you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our child as he/she grows up. Words cannot describe the incredible impact you’re making on our life and the life of our child. We pray that one day he/she will come to understand the love and generosity of our amazing friends and community.

    Adoption Puzzle Fundraiser

    June 13, 2023

    We thought that it would be fun to have a visual representation of our journey towards our goal of being "fully funded". We bought this puzzle of Haleakala National Park on the island of Maui with 500 pieces.

    It works like this:
    1. We are “selling” each piece for $100. You can choose to buy 1, 2, 10, or 20. We will write your name on the back of each puzzle piece you "buy"
    3. We will continue to add pieces to the puzzle with every donation we receive (whether through donation or grants).
    3. Once every single piece has been “sold”, we will frame the puzzle with glass on both sides and hang it in the child's room so that he/she can always look back and be reminded of everyone who helped to bring them home.

    We read your story and want to be a part of it! Our three children (Bennett, Nora, and Everett) are answers to many prayers. We’d love to be able to give to you in their honor, as well as in honor of my sister who was adopted as well.
