Our names are Ben and Kelli, and we are so grateful that you have visited our profile today!
Our adoption journey began before we were even married. We had many conversations while we were dating about how we would both love to adopt. Adoption is sacred as it reflects how God has adopted us into His family. We have all the gifts and benefits of being His children, and we are excited to be a part of this mystery here on earth.
We have tried to have children of our own since early 2017. When it became clear we were not going to have a child on our own, we looked into fertility treatments. We were both tested, but the reason for our infertility is still unclear. In 2020, we decided to try IUI treatments. After our third IUI, Kelli became pregnant. Sadly, she miscarried a few weeks later. It was very difficult for us. After a time of healing, we began to look closer at adoption. We applied to Nightlight Christian Adoption Agency in fall of 2021.
There are a couple ways to support us. First, we ask if you would pray for us, our child, and our child’s birth family. Though we do not know the birth mother or birth family’s circumstances, we know that they are loved and known by God. A second way to support us is financially. Adoption is expensive, and we have chosen to step out in faith that God would provide for our adoption needs.
Thank you for your support, prayers, and encouragement,
Ben and Kelli

We are good friends of Kelli's mom and dad. She was raised in a great home that honored Jesus. I suspect Ben and Kelli will do the same. God's Blessings regarding this adoption.
