These are the families who have taken a leap of faith and committed to adopt one or more of our orphaned children most recently.

We are thrilled to have them, and so grateful for this life-saving step to rescue our angels!
Your continued financial support will give them the strength and courage to continue this journey!

 

Jim and Emily were married 10 years ago and knew that adoption would play a big role in growing their family. At the age of 16, Emily traveled to Thailand on a mission trip where she visited an orphanage. Her experience there broke her heart and changed the course of her life. Upon meeting Jim, she immediately brought up adoption and her heart for adopting. Though Jim had never thought about adoption as a way of growing his family, he absolutely was open to it.

In their first year of marriage, they started their home study in hopes of adopting from Uganda. After being married for just a little over a year, they moved over to Uganda to complete the adoption process. They spent 13 months in Uganda and in September of 2014 they came home with their daughter, Evelyn (1 year) and son, Aven (6 years). At the end of their time in Uganda, they found out that Evelyn and Aven had an older biological brother, Jensen (10 years), and they started the adoption process all over again to bring him home.

While working through the adoption process for Jensen, Emily met Brian (15 years) at the local school she worked at. He was in foster care and began spending time with their family. He moved in full-time in August of 2015. Soon after, in November of 2015, Jensen (10 years) came home from Uganda. In November of 2016, the adoption of all four of their children was finalized at court surrounded by family and friends.

Shortly after finalizing the adoption of their four, they saw the profile of a little boy with special needs in Uganda. They began advocating for him and it didn’t take long for them to realize he was meant to be their son. On Valentine’s Day in 2017, the adoption of Ezekiel (age 6) was finalized, and he came home in June of 2017.

In 2018, Emily learned she was pregnant, and they welcomed their sixth child, Lincoln, in June of 2019. The children continued to grow and thrive and in April of 2020, they learned they were expecting again. In January 2021, Hyler was born.

Jim and Emily have always known they wanted to adopt again, and they wholeheartedly believe that children belong in families. They are hoping to adopt two beautiful little girls — one little girl with Down Syndrome and one with Cerebral Palsy. These two girls will be unconditionally loved and surrounded by a BIG family. Jim and Emily are incredibly appreciative of the support shown to their family as they start the adoption process again. Beyond financial support, they believe in the power of prayer and ask that you pray for them, their children and their two newest additions as they wait. They have seen God work miracles in the lives of their children, and they cannot wait to watch their new girls become loved & cherished members of their family.

Catherine and Jose have been married for almost 9 years. They are a blended family of five girls and one boy. Two of their daughters are already adults. Jose currently works as a chef for a well-known hotel and Catherine works in human services directly with children in foster care. They are excited to be growing their family through adoption. Catherine has always had a heart for adoption since she volunteered at an orphanage in Guatemala at the age of 17. Three years ago, while visiting a foreign country, Catherine and Jose saw the need of the children living overseas and the idea of adoption started to grow. A couple of their close friends have adopted several children through international adoption, and they helped them get connected with a group that helps families throughout the process.

Their adoption journey began almost a year ago and they are currently waiting on an invitation to travel. They are excited to be here and know that the real journey is only about to begin. Thank you for your prayers and support.

Taylor and Celia Marsh have embarked on a journey to bring their son home from Eastern Europe! They currently have 3 precious boys who are so excited to welcome another brother into the family. The Lord began to speak to them during the pandemic in regards to adoption, and led them through dreams and visions to a little boy who is soon to be their son. They have watched God’s affirmations unfold, as they have stepped out in faith. They are confident the Lord has big plans for this little guy!

In 2017, Celia came to know Christ from Atheism. It was an abrupt awakening in their lives and marriage and God continues to do a work in their hearts. It was a year or so later that they began to really feel called into fostering/adopting. While reading the book of James, the conviction remained: “Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” This scripture resonated deep within their hearts, and ignited a calling.

As they continue to step out in faith, they are so excited to open their hearts and home to another child. Won’t you come alongside them to bring their son home? You can help by donating to their adoption. Thank you so much for your prayers and support!

Adam and Kara have 6 children and are in process of adopting a baby boy from Eastern Europe.

We brought our daughter, Karalyne home in January 2021. Many people ask why we chose to adopt internationally. We learned from a friend who was adopting from the same country as we did that there are about 90,000 orphans living in orphanages. While some children are truly orphaned (having lost their parents), others are abandoned by their parents due to special needs or taken away due to neglect or substance abuse. Unfortunately all of these factors are very common there.

Our first adoption cost about $40,000 and took 8 months from start to finish. We expect this one to cost slightly less- about $35,000 with saving a little bit by only having to update our homestudy and not having to pay for a new Immigration application fee. However, with this savings, we will not have as much time to save and fundraise for this adoption. We are humbly so grateful for your help in bringing home our baby boy!
