We are beyond excited to be on a journey to adopt a sibling group of three children from Colombia!
For as long as we’ve been married, we have wanted to adopt
children into our family. Our strong desire to adopt comes from our awareness
that, as Christians, we are recipients of the greatest adoption—our adoption
into God’s family as his son and daughter. We believe adoption is an incredible
picture of the Gospel. Doing nothing to earn our salvation, God pursued us when
we were helpless and hopeless. God chose us, gave us his name, gave us an
eternal inheritance, and asks us to call him “Father.” In response to his great
love for us, we want to model his behavior by pursuing children who are
helpless, give them our
name, give them everything we have, invite them into our family as our children, and call us “Mom and Dad.”
We are doing everything we can to be prepared to welcome a family of children into our home. However, we know that bringing our children home will require much more than our own efforts. For this reason, we are inviting you into this process in the following two ways:
We hope that by including you on our journey, you will see yourself as part of the community we hope to build around our children as they grow up.
