Sorenson Family

Before our family was formed through marriage, we knew that we wanted to grow our family through adoption. What we didn’t know is that foster care and adoption would be our Plan A.

In the fall of 2011 we began talking about having children and God very quickly and clearly placed foster care on our hearts and minds. We became aware of the increasing need and began the necessary training. In the spring of 2012 we were officially licensed as foster parents and we welcomed our first child into our home; a two-year old girl. We were parents for four long months until she was moved from our home. You can read more about that story at austinstone.org/stories/written/item/187-plan-a.

Having our first child leave our home, not knowing if we would ever see her again, was hard but we trusted that she was in God’s hands. We understand that the number one goal for Child Protective Services is to reunite children with their families and we fully supported this effort. After taking a break from foster care for a whole 2 weeks, we welcomed our second foster child in to our home; this time a baby boy. Daily life once again changed and we have been learning, loving, and experiencing life with this little guy for over a year.

As with most things in life, our foster child’s case is not clear-cut. There are many confusing and complicated details surrounding the case. Both of his legal advocates and Child Protective Services recommended that we should hire an attorney to intervene in the case and fight for his best interests. After much prayer and counsel, we are confident in our decision to intervene knowing that he has been placed in our lives by God and that we have been called to protect, advocate and fight for this little boy (Isaiah 1:17). We feel that we need to use the resources God has entrusted us with to meet the financial needs of the legal intervention we are currently pursuing.

As we are making significant financial sacrifices to make this a reality, we are asking that you would consider joining us in this effort. Think of it as making an investment in this little boy’s life. We have felt the conviction of pursuing earthly comforts of a house and nicer car, but defending the cause of the orphan is infinitely more important to us than any tangible worldly item. This case is likely to cost between $20,000 and $40,000 for legal fees, plus additional costs. The kicker is that that we need to provide the total amount to the lawyers very soon. We have already cleared out most of our personal savings and have covered 25% of the costs. We know that God has somehow put you in our lives, and we just ask that you open your hearts, and potentially your wallets, to this little boy who needs our help.
