Our family is passionate about adoption. Rebecca has an adopted brother, and our own daughter Ali also joined our family via adoption. Over the past 10 years since Dan was deployed to Kosovo(borders Albania) and fell in love with the Albanian people, there has been a growing connection with the country and its people. Most recently Dan has taken multiple missions trips to the area supporting a local Albanian church planter and then we spent part of our 5 year anniversary trip visiting the area. We were already well in to the process of a second adoption when we found out that our adoption agency has connections in Albania and immediately we were both drawn to adopt from the country. Our hope/prayer at this point would be to welcome siblings in to our home. We are also investing long term in the country, it's people and specifically the children, as Dan joins the board of a non-profit foundation that is focused on reaching children, teens and young adults with the Gospel by engaging with the community, serving them, encouraging them and emulating Christs love for us every day, through a myriad of ways.
