Book Family Adoption

“Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” – Psalm 127:4-5.

God put the dream of building a family into our hearts years ago. That dream came true with our first child, Roman (7). He is the quintessential first child: a strong leader ready and willing to help at a moment’s notice. He is the field general in our house. His younger brother, Shepherd (5), is the entertainer, always looking for the next best game to play or song to perform. Judah (3) is the baby of the trio. He is vibrant and loving and strong.

As parents, raising these boys has been the joy (and adventure!) of a lifetime. We are pouring into these boys as they grow, teaching them about the love of Jesus and how to live as members of His kingdom here on Earth. We believe these lessons will carry them and the Kingdom itself into the future as God raises them up into men.

As one can likely tell, God has filled our quiver so far. Our boys are all brilliantly created and unique in their personalities, sensitivities, and interests. Yet, they share a common bond: they are all boys. The Kingdom needs women as well, and not having a girl among our children carries a heartache and a longing. This is why we feel called to adopt. We want to add a little girl – a future Kingdom woman – to our home.

We began our adoption journey in 2019 with a small Christian adoption agency. After a year, we chose to affiliate with a larger Christian agency with connections to our home church, Prestonwood Baptist in Plano, Texas, and its pregnancy center. This ministry arm of our church is daily in the spiritual battle of educating abortion-minded women about the Gospel and the value of life. We see an opportunity, if God allows it, to partner in this fight by marrying our desire to adopt a little girl with the center’s desire to save lives.

Today, we are waiting. We believe that God, in His perfect timing, will complete our family with a child not born to us, but chosen for us. The ABBA Fund came highly recommended to us and they have been incredibly supportive and welcoming of us as a family. Thank you for your support and willingness to partner with us on this epic journey!
