To be honest, this adoption was not even on the radar just a few weeks ago.  We thought our family was complete.  We have a biological daughter named Addy who is 9 years old and an adopted daughter named Avery who is 16 months old.  We have a nice life and we were content with 2 kids.  But.......sometimes God has other plans.

When we first received that phone call asking if we would be interested in adopting a biological sister for our adopted daughter, our initial reaction was absolutely not.  We are totally content and not sure if we could even handle another child based on our hectic schedules.  Two kids in diapers, that just sounds terrible.  Not to mention the fact that we are already 43 years old.  How are we going to do this?  We are too old to have another baby.  Those are a lot of excuses.  All of those excuses are valid points.

The flip side to that is the opportunity to change not 1 but 2 lives.  The chance to adopt a biological sister for your adopted daughter is a huge opportunity.  To give them each a stable life where they can grow up together, knowing each other and experiencing this life together.

God changed our hearts and we have embarked on this journey to adopt another child.  This all happened very fast.  From the time we found out the birth mother was pregnant again until the baby was born was 9 days.  Our first adoption took several years so we were able to save money and fundraise to prepare for that.  This adoption just fell into our laps and we were not prepared at all.  We had saved no money and have done no fundraising.  This is reason we are using AdoptionBridge. We trusted God that if he provided a way for this adoption to happen, he would also provide us a way to pay for it.  We greatly appreciate any donations made on our behalf.  God Bless!

Kyle, Sabra, Addy, Avery and the newest addition Ashton
