Nearly 7 years ago we met on a camping trip to Carter Lake, Colorado. Our first words to each other were "Hey! Your name is Austin too!?" We were engaged 10 months later, married in the mountains near Estes Park and this year, celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary.
We have always known we wanted children but after 2 long years of trying and a few small fertility treatments, we knew God was calling us to grow our family through adoption instead of pursuing IVF treatments. We are looking forward to what's next and know with divine certainty that this is God's plan for our family. We have faith that He will open doors and bring us all together.
We are so excited to become parents but we need your help to make this all happen. There are a few ways you can support us on this journey.
1. If you feel that tug on your heart, you can donate financially to our adoption fundraiser on this site! Funds raised from this site will go directly to Nightlight Christian Adoptions to help cover adoption agency fees, travel expenses, and attorney fees.
2. If you feel led, please lift our family up in your prayers. We ask for peace, patience, faith, and clarity as we seek to grow our family.
3. If you or someone you know is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, you can reach out to Nightlight Christian Adoptions and mention The Overman Family (ID #: 1102728) or visit Nightlight.org to learn more about pregnancy resources and free counseling.
We have spent long hours in prayer and thought to write this letter to you. This may be the hardest and most exciting thing God has ever asked us to do but we're confident He has good things in store for us. We have struggled with the thought of asking you to support us, but, we know God designed us to be in community for this reason. We would be honored if you would help us on this journey. Thank you so much for your support and prayers, no words could ever express our gratitude.
With Love and Appreciation, Austin & Austen
