WELCOME TO OUR ADOPTION STORY

We are so thankful that you are here right now diving into our adoption story. (really, it means the world to us.) Adoption comes with painful waiting along each step of the way, and after much waiting thus far, we’re excited to finally be sharing this news with our biggest supporters. Over the course of the last year (Oct ‘17-Oct ‘18) we’ve been pursuing international adoption in Jinja, Uganda and have recently been accepted! In the next year or so, we will be moving to Africa to foster our child for 12-18 months in Uganda and then return home all because of God’s master plan. Watch our video below, learn about the process we’re taking on, pray for us, donate if you feel led, and share with anyone you feel :)

COUNTING THE COST

Adoption is expensive for ethical reasons and for the intense process for all involved. We want to be transparent with every cost. The list of expenses is too long to share here. However, you can click here to see the expenses we’ve paid so far, along with very near expenses coming soon. We will be fundraising for our adoption, along with raising monthly support as missionaries.
