About the campaign
For the past 7 years, I lived in China while teaching at an international school. During that time I led an annual high school service trip to the Philippines. We served at a local orphanage, and I completely fell in love with the kids. I was able to develop relationships with them since I kept coming back each year.
Each night I prayed with these kids for their future families. It was the only thing they ever asked us to pray for.
On the 5th service trip, I was again praying with two kids I knew and loved so much, and I felt God stirring in my own heart to be the answer to one of these prayers. I spent a month researching and praying, and then decided to start the adoption process!
That was in March of 2015. It's been a very long 3.5-year process, with many setbacks and challenges. I am thrilled to have been recently matched with an 8.5-year-old girl, and I could not be more thrilled! The rest of the paperwork process will take about 6-9 months, so I'm hoping that I can travel to get her next summer!
Thank you for wanting to join me on this journey. Your prayers and support are so appreciated.
