7.5 years ago, we were brought to international adoption. It was a decision that was not made lightly, but came so easily to us. We are anxiously awaiting the day we get to bring our child home.
Where do we even begin? This is gut wrenching gratitude that almost takes our breath away. We promise to honor our child’s family, culture, and country, we promise to raise the kindest person you’d ever meet, we promise to be present and fill their life with as much opportunity as we can, and we promise to raise a child of God. This has been the most intentional, soul shaping, emotional, exhausting process we have experienced, adoption has changed us. We are better people because of it. Adoption is built upon brokenness, in a perfect world, it would not exist. “A child born to another woman calls me mom. The magnitude of that tragedy and the depth of that privilege is not lost on me” - Jody Landers
Please join us in prayer as we pray for our sweet child, for our child’s birth parents, for their current caregivers, for safe travels, during the attachment process, for their health and developmental support, and for guidance in this next chapter for us. We invite our family and friends to be a part of this amazing journey with us. However God inspires you to invest, whether it be through prayers, words of encouragement, adoption funding, or sharing your own story and talents, we hope that you reach out!
We cannot wait to share more and for the day we get to bring our child home. To our family, friends, those that have followed our journey, and Nightlight Christian Adoptions. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us hope during this wait, we are eternally grateful. This is all we ever wanted. 🌎♥️
“I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I will give him to the Lord. For his whole life, he will be given over to the Lord.” - 1 Samuel 1:27-28
