We are so glad that you are joining us on our adoption journey! God has done so many things to bring our family to this point, and we would love to share the story with you. In order to catch you up, I will be sending out a series of blogs on how God brought us here. This is the first one!
Our journey with adoption has been a long one. I do not remember when I first began to think about adopting. I do remember the first discussion Jeremy and I had on this topic. It was 2004. We were engaged and talking on the phone in the middle of the night, trying to decide how many children we wanted to have. I mentioned to Jeremy that I thought it might be wonderful to adopt. He agreed but wasn’t sure adoption was for us. We decided to say “maybe” and start praying.
Fast forward to 2006. Jeremy and I had been married for a little over two years. Focus on the Family had just teamed up with Family Life and some other organizations for a major push on orphan care. We were enthralled, listening to every radio broadcast with excitement. And somehow during that time, we knew. Our interest had become a passion–a calling from God to provide a forever family to one or more children.
