About this Fundraiser



Hi there! We are the Marrs Family. There are currently four of us in our little family {Dad - Dave, Mom - Jenny and rambunctious twin brothers - Ben and Nathan} ...


...and we are working hard to bring home our fifth member, our baby girl, currently living in the DRC. 

This path of adoption was first placed on our hearts years ago when our eyes and our hearts were opened to the plight of orphaned children around the world. We knew God was asking us to step out in faith and allow Him to work in our lives in a new and exciting way. We followed His leading on a twisty road ...


...that eventually led us to our daughter in Central Africa. 


To be perfectly honest, when we started this adoption we thought God was simply calling us to change the life of a child. Yet, it turns out that we have been the changed ones through this process. We have received glimpses of God's magnificent glory and have been drawn closer than ever before to the heart of Christ through this journey. 

We have fallen in love and are longing to know our daughter and hold her in our arms. We know that her short life has been filled with loss, brokenness and pain and we pray that God will move the mountains of red tape and paperwork to bring her home to us quickly so that she can know the unwavering love of a family. We trust that He will use all of this pain and heartache for His glory and we are absolutely honored to have been given a front-row seat to watch Him do His best work: creating beauty from ashes. {Isaiah 61:3}

We've started a fundraiser on Pure Charity to raise the funding that we need to fund the final portion of our adoption. We are currently awaiting word that we have passed court and can proceed with the US immigration and Embassy portions of our adoption. We are in the home stretch to getting on a plane with our daughter in our arms!

We have a donations goal of $8,000 that will go towards the final costs of our adoption. Every donation is important and will help us bring our precious one home. Would you kindly consider making a donation? Also, we would appreciate your willingness to share this with others who may want to participate.

Thank you so much for being a part of our daughter's story. We are blessed beyond measure with support and encouragement and are in awe of the willingness of others to link arms with us as we work to change the life of this one precious child.
