Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Q and A

Why do we want to adopt?
First lets take a look at what God has to say about adoption,
"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you."
James 1:27
"Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows."
Isaiah 1:17
"And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me."
Matthew 18:5
I cannot say what exactly it is about Adoption that touches our hearts, but when something starts to weigh on your heart so heavily and God tells us as a Christian to take care of pray about it and realize this is something as an individual that I need to do, want to do and desire to do.
How much will she cost?

She will be priceless.
Although there are many fees and cost to adopt we believe God will make this possible for our family. Total cost on adopting can be anywhere from $13,000-$33,000.
This is not paid in full, but in installments over time.
There are many ways to make this possible.

Will this affect your other children?

We pray in a way, yes, it will affect our other children.
We pray that they will,

Love deeper.
Think of others more.
Pray for orphans across the world.
Pray for families adopting.
Pray for their new sister.

Will not let anyone refer to their sister as their adopted sister,
she is their sister.

Want to help other adoptive families bring their child or children home.

Share the beauty of adoption.
Realize God's love for orphans.
Realize that this is a blessing from God.
Realize that a family doesn't have to look the same to be a family.
