Hi! Our journey to adoption actually began a long time ago. For as long as I (Brittany) can remember, my greatest desire was to be a mother. But at age 26, I found out I would not be able to have children biologically. While it was devastating news, God had already been preparing my heart for adoption since I was a young girl. My mother remembers me talking about adopting a baby long before I ever knew about my infertility. My love for kids led me to move to South Africa to work with orphans and vulnerable children and that was where I discovered first-hand how easily I could love those children who were not biologically related to me. For the last ten years, I have looked forward to the day when I would finally adopt a child. When Ben and I begain dating three years ago, I shared my story and my adoption hopes with him and he jumped right on board!
Since we got married, we have been prayerfully discerning the right time to begin this journey and we believe the time has come! Our excitement for adoption does not come without a sober awareness of the impossible decision the expectant mothers are making. We are praying that whatever expectant mother might choose us to parent her child woudl feel loved, supported and valued by us. We are already praying for her all the time. And we are really looking forward to whatever God has for our future!View Profile Book
