Since we were both young adults, we have felt God’s pull on our hearts to pursue adoption. Before we ever met each other, adoption was a part of our individual story, desire, and heart.
We met in 2007 and began a friendship. Part of that friendship was based on a desire to pursue international adoption. In November of 2012 we got married, celebrated with family and friends in Indiana, and returned to Colorado.
After researching and talking with other adoptive parents and friends, we initially selected a local adoption agency and begun the process of adopting from Uganda. We prayerfully considered all adoption possibilities and options….infant, local, fostering, international, etc. and felt that God was opening doors for us to pursue adopting siblings from Uganda.
However, God had other plans and as doors began to close in Uganda God began to open a new opportunity in Ethiopia!
We cannot tell you how excited we are about this new adventure God is calling us to walk with Him! We know it will be a journey, a long journey that only just begins with the actual adoption process. However, we have been blessed beyond measure with our family and friends; we know how much love, support, encouragement, and more love that we are surrounded by and our little ones will be embraced with when they come home.
Please consider partnering with us on our adventure! The goal is a large one, as we are hoping to adopt two siblings at one time. We covet your prayers and support as we jump in!
With Love and Excitement!!!
