Phil and Maggie have been married for 10 years and have been blessed with 5 beautiful children, ages 9, 7, 6, 4, and 3.  Phil is a writer and works from home.  Maggie homeschools the children and the whole family gets to spend most of their time together, which is something they do not take for granted.

Maggie felt drawn toward adoption from a young age and, through experience with family members and through volunteering at a local organization that employs those with special needs, she developed a special love for those with Down syndrome.  Phil has not always felt called to adoption, but Maggie asked him to pray about the possibility of adopting.  Several years later, after finding out that his grandfather was adopted, Phil’s heart opened and he was on board.  They both felt called to international adoption from the start and, through prayer and various circumstances, they discerned that God was leading them toward an Asian adoption.

There were three little boys that they felt drawn to during the referral process.  Two of these boys had families hoping to adopt them once their home studies were approved, which gave Phil and Maggie peace about pursuing the third little boy.  Something about his picture really grabbed their hearts and they were so excited that he might become a part of their family.

After a roller coaster of twists and turns and many months delay, they finally received pre-approval to adopt Chip.  Their other children fell in love with him instantly and already consider him a part of the family.  The 3-year-old loves to pray for “Chippy” and they can’t wait until they get to meet him face to face, as they feel like he has been in their hearts forever.

They feel so blessed to have been called to the beautiful journey of adoption.  Financial hardships have been many throughout the process, but they are trusting that the Lord will provide for them as He always has.  Thank you to anyone willing to assist in bringing their new son home!  May God Bless you!
