SARAI for the Colwell family — WA
Zach and Lorraine’s story started out “crazy” from the beginning. After meeting through friends while they lived across the US from each other in 2005, they met, fell in love, and were married in 2009. They started their lives together in Washington and knew they both knew they wanted children. Both discussed their desire to adopt “one day” and prayed God would bring their child into their lives when He saw fit. Lorraine was then given a 3 percent chance to ever conceive a child, just weeks before she found out their first child was on the way! Benjamin was born in 2010 and 18 months later Isaac was born! They knew their lives of percentages and “chances” seemed crazy but that God was much bigger! In the middle of getting ready for Zach to leave for 6 month training with the Air Force, Lorraine and Zach met with their friends who were adopting a child. They were instantly drawn to a little girl seen in one of the pictures with her. After lots of praying and realizing God’s timing is far greater than their own, they chose to follow where God was leading and pursue this child. Their family of four knew they were a family of five and each member longed for this little girl to be home. Although it may seem “crazy” and “quick” to others, they know that is how their lives have been from the start and refer to themselves as “crazy blessed!” They are very excited for their family to be growing and long to shower their sweet girl with love!
