Sam & Josh Knipp

are adopting a child from United States of America

We have been married for nearly 10 years. We have always wanted a family; it really was not even a question if we would have children when we met. We both laughed at the fact that we never talked about it and both assumed one another wanted children however what we really did not talk about is NOT having children. What would that look like? Would our family be a family? Who would “we” be? Let me explain… we have not been blessed with the option to reproduce naturally and did not come to find out this information until our third year of marriage. We tried endlessly to make a family. We fought off our jealously when friends and family were having children and or when you must explain to a stranger for the millionth time why you do not yet have a family. In all seriousness though we found it to take a long time for the two of us to JUST BE. Acceptance, grief, mourning etc. and all of the childbearing talk aside, we needed to find us and JUST BE. God has a plan for us and it has worked out so beautifully on his watch.

TOGETHER & SEPARATELY we gave our journey a rest for the past three years accepting our fate and accepting the blessings we have been given, JUST BEEING. Both digging deep through therapy sessions, meditation, exercise and LOVE. As 2022 came upon us, Josh and I felt a "God Slap" and began to look deeper into adoption.

It is clearer now more than ever; adoption is our last chance at parenthood.

As you might not know the average cost of domestic infant adoption is nearly $85K. This can be quite the burden to bear if walked alone.

To put it plainly, we need each other, Josh and I need you. Josh and I long to share our experiences, love, affection and joy with you as we begin this next beautiful chapter of our story together.

May Gods promises be fulfilled in His ever divine timing.

We are so grateful for you.
