“We stepped out in faith…” // Family Friday

Please enjoy this adoption testimony from Todd and Kimberly, second-time adoptive parents. Their story shows that when we are obedient to God’s calling on our lives, He will provide us a way to make it through our journey. I loved listening in to the struggle they felt in asking for help and just praying for provision — a thought process and balance that we see often with our adoptive families. I pray that you are encouraged and uplifted by their testimony… In the spring of 2012, God surprised us by impressing on our hearts that we should adopt an aging out teenager from China.  At the time, we had four daughters in our home and Kimberly was homeschooling the younger two children.  Unlike our first adoption, during which Kimberly was working part-time and we had a budget for setting aside funds for adoption, this time we were not financially prepared … Continue reading

“We Said Yes to Adoption” // June Mission Moment

“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 1:5 (NLT) Adoption. One of the most beautiful pieces of the Gospel. An all-powerful and loving Father God chose us, in our sinfulness, to be His sons and daughters. Does it get any better than that? The fact that we, as Christians, can replicate this relationship in our own families to tell the Gospel through our lives is an complete honor and joy. “WE SAID YES TO ADOPTION” // Andy & Laura’s Story  (video by Andy Watson) Andy and Laura, adoptive parents of Eli from Ethiopia shared how God provided every step of the way, crushing fears and showing that HE is faithful to finish what He starts.

“I am your mommy!” // Family Friday

Matt and Alicia are they adoptive parents of this sweet little guy, Cohen. They traveled last year to bring him home from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We were honored to join them in this journey by providing an interest-free loan as well as providing fundraising support as they participated in a Both Hands project. I recently was looking back through Alicia’s blog and came across the post where she described the moment her and her husband met Cohen for the first time. From the heart of a momma… My stomach was wild like a parachute being shaken by a classroom of preschoolers.  Was it the coffee we had drank earlier in the day?  Was it the food that was prepared for us as guests of honor at our new friend’s house?  Was it the nerves?  Was it the intense smell of diesel fuel that overwhelmed our nostrils when driving … Continue reading

“I know you guys!” // Family Friday

We were excited to partner with Robert & Alexis for a second time as they brought home their son Jacob from Korea. I couldn’t help but smile as I read through their adoption testimony, so easily seeing the picture as they told of their first meeting with their son Jacob.  The picture reminded me of our Heavenly Father and how even though now we see in a mirror dimly, one day, like Jacob, we will see Him face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12). Our wait to bring Jacob home was very long. We had spent a year and a half looking at picturesof him growing up and reading about what milestones he was reaching. It was a long, hard wait. Finally we got our travel call, and we were on our way. The first time we met Jacob, we walked into the room he was in, and after looking at … Continue reading

“The Lord met all of our needs…” // Family Friday

Just this week we received a lovely thank you from Matt and Kelly, a Lifesong family who were given a Lifesong Legacy Loan to help bring their son Jeriah home from Thailand. They included their loan repayment making it possible for Lifesong to give out a loan to ANOTHER family, like them, who are bringing a child into a forever family! Thank you Matt & Kelly for letting us walk this adoption journey with you. Praying that God’s hand will continue to rest on your family as you grow and live in Him! It is with great joy that we are sending this check to pay back the loan you so graciously granted us for our adoption of our son, Jeriah. At the beginning of this long process, the cost overwhelmed us. And yet, the Lord has met all of our needs in truly wonderful ways. We know that God … Continue reading

Family Brings Son Home from Russia // Family Friday

As many of you know, there has been some recent changes in Russia’s adoption laws that has brought some sadness, leaving futures for many unknown and unsettled. We’ve been reminded again, as Christians, to be instant in prayer for the Russian governmental officials, the tens of thousands of orphans and their waiting families. Let’s also pray for the Christian Church in Russia, our brothers and sisters, to step-up and support indigenous adoption in their own countries.  And in the midst of our prayers, let’s praise God for the child from Russia He brought into a forever family this last weekend! Phillip and Ann, Lifesong Adoptive Family, brought home their two-year-old son, Chance. It was a long journey with many hurdles, but God made a way!! Join me in rejoicing in this beautiful miracle! We pray that through sharing this story other families will be encouraged to persevere in their adoption journey and … Continue reading
