About this Fundraiser

John 14:18 " I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you."

Our story started 10 years ago when God initially planted a seed into our hearts to foster or adopt children who are in need. Having young kids of our own at that time, we didn't know when, how, or where God would use us. But in 2015 Emily and I began taking steps to see where God would lead us. We started by taking training classes to be licensed foster parents in North Carolina. Through that process, God presented an opportunity, which we took a leap of faith, that started our journey of adoption.  As many of you know,  God has led us to 3 brothers ,ages 7, 6, and 5, who currently live in Poland and are in need of a forever home. God's peace and nudge to adopt these boys was undeniable! 

This process has gone so fast! And by next month we are expecting to make our first trip to Poland to meet the boys for the first time. During that trip we will stay in Poland for a couple weeks to meet the boys for bonding time and court sessions. After the initial trip we will return home, and then two weeks later ,we will take a second trip back to Poland to finalize the adoption and bring the boys home with us! 

We have been very busy preparing our home in anticipation of their arrival. So much so, that we haven't had time to put together a creative way to raise extra funds needed to complete this adoption.

Although adoption is a wonderful thing, it is typically a very expensive process. To help offset some of this cost, we've decided to set up this fundraising page as a way for friends and family to partner with us as we bring these boys home! 

We have a donations goal of $20,000 that will go towards assisting in the final costs of the adoption. We estimate our total cost to be over $50,000  altogether. Your support will be greatly appreciated and we also ask that you pray for our family in the weeks and months to come as we make this transition. 

We are grateful for such a supportive community of friends and family! Thank you so much for being a part of our lives and helping us accomplish something of significance and that has eternal value!  

Please feel free to share our story and help us recruit more supporters!
