We're Ashton and Taylor Edwards, and we're adopting a baby!
What have we been up to?
Aside from conversations around and the commitment to enter the adoption process, Ashton has been working as a freelance videographer creating content for commercial businesses, weddings, and other personal projects. He gets the benefit of working from home most days with the opportunity to collaborate with other videographers and photographers in the four-state area. Within the last year, Taylor completed her M.Ed. and works as a fourth-grade teacher in the Webb City School District. We got a puppy in April of 2022. Monroe, our mini Goldendoodle, completely took on Ashton's personality and loves to play rough and love hard all days of the week.
Why are we adopting?
Even before we started dating, Ashton and I felt a great passion for adoption. It started as a desire to provide a safe place, stability, and love for a child who needed it. However, we now humbly look forward to the opportunity to extend love in the way of an open adoption knowing that the Lord will have much to teach us as we seek to center the expectant mother and the child.
As we do so, we ask for your help. We know that not everyone has the means to give financially. If you do, we appreciate your gift. If you are the praying type, we ask for prayers that God would provide to us perseverance and joy as we work through the adoption process. You can also join us in praying for patience, gentleness, and wisdom as we approach parenthood. If you have any talents or resources you would like to lend to us throughout our fundraising journey, we also appreciate your willingness to help us in that way - should you know how to reach us.
Thank you so much for your love and support!
