Tara and I have been married for 15 years, and we have 3 biological children. In 2014, we took a missions trip to the country of Haiti. It was durring that time that we feel in love with Haiti and it's people. God truly broke our hearts for the need that is there, and began stirring our hearts with compassion. On the plane ride home, we knew God was calling us to something, we just weren't sure what it was yet.
A few weeks later, we knew what God was leading us to...adopt a child from Haiti. It was not a hard decision to adopt, because we really feel like it's a calling on our lives. We spent months praying about it just to make sure our decision was not an emotional one. So after much prayer, we knew exactly what we were to do, adopt from Haiti! Not to our surprise, our 3 children are so excited about the direction our family is going. We have never seen his face, but he already has a place and a name here in our hearts.
We know that this is something God has called us to and we are stepping out in faith to follow His calling. International adoption is a very expensive journey, but we belive that if God has called us to it, He will see us through it. We also belive that God will use other people to see this calling come to fruition. We are using Adoption Bridge as a way to encourage other people to be apart of saving a life! Giving hope to a child who is in great need. We can do so much more together than we can alone. We ask you to please prayerfully consider partnering with us, both in prayer and financially. Thank you so much!
Isaiah 42:1 - "I have called you by name and you are Mine."

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. ~Galatians 6:10 Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Isaiah! What a blessing to know that when God created Isaiah, he was created to be a part of the Olsen Family. God is Amazing!

We are so excited for you and pray that the adoption process goes smoothly.
It is exciting to see you guys follow God's leading and adopting Isaiah from Haiti! I will be praying for you guys throughout your journey.
If there is ANYTHING I can do to help your family prepare for Isaiah please let me know. We hope to give more in the future. We still have our own adoption expenses leftover.......Let me know if it would help your children to talk to Claire about what it is like to have a new sibling in the family. We will keep your family in our prayers! We are so happy for you!
I love you all so much! Can't wait to meet Isaiah!
Love you all so much!
