After many months of thoughtful prayer and deep conversation, our family has begun the process to adopt a child with special needs from Eastern Europe.
There are many stories we could share (and some we will, down the line) about how God has led us to this exact point. Our decision to adopt was born out of a desire to be obedient to what we feel God has asked our family to do in this season of our lives. We know we have been equipped in a unique way to care for a sweet little one with special needs.
As many of you know, we were shocked to find out our first child would be born with Down syndrome. It hasn't been easy, but the first 16 months of our daughter's life have been rich and filled with joy. We are very blessed to have many local resources available for our sweet EJ. She has amazing therapists and we've met many friends who are walking this same path as us. It's been wonderful to become a part of the local Down syndrome community.
We are thrilled to have so many supportive family members and friends and hope that you will come alongside us as we move through this adoption journey!
