We (Nick and Kourtney) started dating our sophomore year of high school after meeting at Wakatomika Christian Church Camp. After being married for a few years, we decided to grow our family and it took over a year and a half to get pregnant. During that waiting period we often talked of adoption, but not only as a possibility if pregnancy didn’t occur, but as a possibility for the future.
Fast forward several years and 2 kids later (Henry and Renie), Kourtney got to go on a mission trip to Zimbabwe Africa. Once coming home, Kourtney was driven by the things she saw, and helped with. Nick came around quickly and we started looking into adoption options. Being under 30 and already having kids, some countries were not an option to adopt from. Eventually we narrowed it down to Africa, and then Liberia. It’s been a very long journey, and Covid has just made things take longer.
We fully believe that adoption is one of our callings and are looking for assistance from you. We chose adoption bridge as a fundraising platform for friends and family to donate that was convenient. Please help us in this mission to grow our family and spread God’s word.
The goal of $10,624 comes from being 1/3 of total expected costs and what is estimated for the remainder of our adoption. We do not expect to become fully funded through this program and that is okay. We have heard many friends and family ask us to setup a page so that they can assist us in this journey.
We are also planning on fundraising by selling shirts and a benefit dinner which will include a silent auction. T-shirts are $20, we will include a picture of them ASAP. The benefit and silent auction will be help at Wakatomika Christian Service Camp on October 16 @ 5:30 (Facebook Event). For any questions you have about our process or to get in touch please email us at Rahn.Adoption@gmail.com.
