The Wall Family Love Story

Brooke: Our adoption story started six years ago when I was a junior in college. I traveled to Uganda for the first time on a short-term mission trip, by myself with 30 other strangers. We spent a lot of time at a children’s home in Jinja, where I met my sponsor child for the first time. It was on this trip that orphan care and adoption first found a home in my heart.

Zach says that I came home different. I was emotional, had zero desire to continue college (although this desire came back), and just wanted to be back in Uganda with people who I missed so wholeheartedly. I would never be the same, emotionally. My aspirations, dreams, and hopes for the future had all changed and I knew that God had laid it on my heart to adopt one day. I prayed for quite awhile before my initial trip to Uganda that Zach would somehow feel the same love for Uganda and go back with me.

In June 2011 Zach and I traveled to Uganda with Visiting Orphans. On this trip, he became BROKEN for Uganda and the children that he met. We talked a lot about adoption and the hopes we had one day for our future family. He says now that he saw the light and love in me when I returned and wanted to feel it too.
