Our Story
Donors (39)
Over two years ago, God radically changed our family's perspective on life - our goals, dreams, and desires.

We were blessed to spend over three months in Zambia, Africa adopting our sweet son Elijah during the summer or 2011!

We loved our family of four and assumed our adoption journey was complete. That wasn't meant to be! God laid adoption very clearly on our hearts again - having open arms for two girls from Uganda.

Our biggest questions and concerns were financial. Having just completed an adoption a year prior, our funds were completely depleted. How could we possibly...

We remind ourselves of God's faithful provisions for our first adoption and know that he will do the same again! We are so thankful for the support of Adopt Together to bring our little one(s) home!

Would you join us on our journey and be a part of providing a loving family for a little one?

Thank you so much for your love, support, and prayers!

Update (March 2014): We have now been in country for over 4 months. There has been delay after delay. The additional cost has been significant! I have updated our goal to reflect where we currently are.

"Your daughter was the last child I spent time with when I left Uganda. I was leaving as you were arriving, and so I got to ride the 3 hours to the airport with her. Gosh, she was so excited! Such a blessing."
