We cant imagine what you must be going through right now as you struggle to make this difficult decision about what is best for your child. We know that your love for your child is what actually makes this decision so hard. We pray that God would give you wisdom as you weigh every option.
To introduce our family briefly: We are a family of five. My name is Michael, and my wife's name is Erika. We have three children: Luke, Ava, and Jordan. I am a pastor of a small local church, and Erika stays home with the kids. As a family we love to be outside, to go on hikes, and to see all the beautiful things around us. We have Redwoods, the ocean, and mountains all within twenty minutes of us. We love playing games and watching movies or silly Youtube videos together. We are truly blessed by the family God has given us.
We want to explain a little about why we want to adopt. For one thing, we still want to grow our family, but Erika has very difficult pregnancies. We also want to adopt because of our Christian convictions about caring for orphans and widows (James 1:27). Another important reason is we want to support women who may not be in a position to take on a new child but who do not want to end the life of their child in the womb.
Know that if you were to decide on adoption with us that your child would grow up in a loving, Christian home, guided by the principles of the Bible. As you weigh all the factors that go into this decision, hopefully this book will help you understand a little more about what adoption may look like if you were to choose our family. Thank you for your consideration!
Love, Michael and ErikaView Profile Book
