“Nothing short of a miracle” // Family Friday

FF 10-11

Welcome to another week of Family Friday! We were honored to play a small part in Derek & Leslie’s second adoption of their son Silas. Enjoy their adoption testimony… When we began the process to adopt, we knew it was a calling given to us by God. At the time, we did not have the funds to adopt, but trusted that He would provide for us. Lifesong generously offered us a Matching grant which covered a significant amount of fees to help bring our son home. Over the course of our entire adoption process we were in awe watching how the Lord provided for us to adopt our son and Lifesong was a huge part of that blessing. The matching grant enabled us to be able to pay for our referral fees to be able to say yes to our son, Silas. God’s provision was very evident in the financing of … Continue reading

“Nate fits perfectly in our family!” // Family Friday

FF 10-4

One less orphan. One more Family Friday. Please join me in walking through Chad & Kristy’s adoption journey to their son Nathaniel from China. We are always thankful to play a small role by helping families financially. Our Adoption Fund Partner, Church at Brook Hills, awarded this family with a matching grant. Enjoy their story… Lifesong was such a blessing to our family in allowing us to get the funds we needed to bring our precious son home. We were certain the Lord called us to this child and we knew He would provide the money needed to get our son home. As much as we wanted this child to be part of our home we wanted even more to be in line with God’s plan for us no matter what. We are thankful the Lord provided the funds needed and thankful for the opportunity to use the matching grant … Continue reading

“We have learned to trust in God’s timing” // Family Friday

FF 10-27

Welcome to another Family Friday — these stories just never get old! Let’s praise God this week for bringing another orphan into a forever family because of His love, provision and sovereignty in the lives of Wade & Alissa. Listen in as they share their adoption testimony and journey to their sweet little Lola Rene… Going through the adoption process for the second time hadn’t really been on our radar before we began the process in September 2012.  Our daughter, Larkin, was 16 months old and keeping us busy.  Although we knew we would adopt again in the future, we had thought we would wait until Larkin was a little older.  However, we have learned to trust in God’s timing, and listen to His call to care for the orphan. After a few months of paperwork and home study visits, we became a waiting family for a domestic adoption.  As … Continue reading

“God knew what we would need” // Family Friday

I find this week’s Family Friday completely refreshing. Maybe it’s the Katee’s sweet smile pictured below. Or maybe it’s the realness that Ian & Julie share in their adoption testimony. You see, Lifesong receives dozens of funding applications per week, so much more than the funds that are available. I love hearing this family’s testimony of God’s provision in giving them not necessarily what they wanted, but what they needed. We are honored to be just a small part of God’s beautiful picture of provision. Lifesong was the first grant we applied for during our adoption process. To be completely honest, I was initially disappointed when we “only” received fundraising support and not the matching grant I was praying for. But our sovereign God knew what we would need and clearly directed Lifesong in their decision regarding our family. We ended up receiving two large grants from other organizations, and … Continue reading

“The best gifts are not meant to be repaid, but reproduced.”

FF 9-13

Excited to share with you yet another child who has found a forever family. Meet Nora, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and her parents, Noah & Brandy. We were honored to be a small part of this journey but helping this couple financially with a matching grant. Please listen in as Noah & Brandy share a piece of their hearts and journey… It was over three years ago when God led us to pursue adoption and we started the process of preparing our home for our new son or daughter. Praise God, as of March 14th, 2013, we were blessed to bring Nora Divine into our family. The past three years have been quite the journey. We have been excited to see God’s love through so many selfless hearts who prayed, gave and rejoiced in our adoption. We have also shed many tears over the condition of international … Continue reading

“Adoption has altered all our hearts” // Family Friday

FF 9-6

Excited to share another adoption journey with you. I hope week by week you feel encouraged and uplifted by the stories from our Lifesong families. James and Colleen have a story to tell and we are honored to share that with you. Enjoy… We both believe that God placed the desire for adoption on each of our hearts prior to marriage. Our extensive overseas experience was the springboard for a desire to adopt internationally. We first started an adoption from Pakistan in 2010 when we had one biological child, Hannah. Soon after sending in our dossier, the pilot program was closed. After this happened, we started an adoption from the China Special Needs Program. My husband had spent a great deal of time in China and developed an affinity for the people and culture. It seemed like a perfect fit for our family especially since we live in a multi-cultural … Continue reading

Six Months Home // Family Friday

FF 8-30

Excited to share with you a guest blog post today for our Family Friday from a two-time adoptive family. Kory and Megan have close family ties with Lifesong and Kory works as VP of Operations, so this week is especially close to home for us. We’re excited to share a piece of their journey with you. Listen in as Megan writes reflecting on “Six Months Home”… Yesterday marked six months since Zak joined our not-so-little tribe. Sometimes when I look at his face I can’t help but marvel at how he came to be ours. What a wonderful, amazing twist God wrote into our lives last spring when He made it abundantly clear we were to adopt again. Zak is my miracle child. His transition into our family has felt incredibly seamless, but even so, I have noticed in the past month or two our little boy opening up to … Continue reading
