National Adoption Month

If you couldn't tell by our blog, we are passionate about adoption. We love our children by adoption and want to encourage others to adopt. Our family feels a burden to be the voice for the millions of children (estimates are anywhere from 147 to 165 million orphans) worldwide who are without a Mommy and a Daddy.

Look at the picture above. If not for the miracle of adoption, none of my 6 beautiful curly-headed children would be here. If not for the U.S. foster care system, we wouldn't have our youngest. If not for the Ethiopian government realizing they have a HUGE need and allowing international adoption, 5 of my children would be parentless and hopeless.

I sat yesterday, as my husband shared his heart for adoption with some friends. He said, "I can't imagine life without any of our kids." It's true, our kids bless us beyond measure.

CHURCH, it's time to wake up, live a radical faith that has us abandon the things of this world to do what is truly important in the eyes of God! We would love to help you walk through this journey. Please contact us if you have any questions!


  1. Abrham and I were talking the other day about how he is such a happy person...happy here, happy there, always happy. Then he said, "I'm happy in America but I wasn't in Ethiopia." I asked him why and he said, "It's just not fun when you don't have a family."
