The Call to Adoption

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure." Ephesians 1:4-5 

Wow. God decided to adopt us, all of us, into his own family. The Creator of The Universe wants ME. That's big love. 

Jeremy and I met and started dating about eight years ago. Four years ago we married. We decided to enjoy being married for a year before we started a family. We planned to marry, get better jobs, buy a house and start having children. Those were OUR plans, but they were not God's plans for us. We would discover over three very hard years that God was about to radically change our hearts. What we know now is that God was always there, always lifting us up, making us stronger and pulling us closer to Him. Infertility is the single hardest battle Jeremy and I have ever fought individually and as a couple, but there is good news- God won the battle when He opened our hearts WIDE to adoption. 

We feel called to adopt not just because we want to become parents- that's true, yes- but more so, we feel called to adopt because we know God has children in mind that He needs saved, and He has prepared us to step up to the plate. 

We are ready, Lord, and OH SO excited!

Adoption is expensive and we need to raise $30,000 to bring our baby home...
