About Us

We were a family of two for nine years.  Then on August 17, 2009, we traveled around the world and held our sweet baby girl in our arms for the very first time, and we became three.  We fell in love with our Emilia Jane, and with Ethiopia and her people.  As we said goodbye to our daughter's homeland and boarded our plane to come home, I think we knew then that we had to go back.

And so we are.  The stirring in our hearts is unmistakable, and we know God has a son for us in Ethiopia.  Although we don't look at adoption as just a mission, it's how God is building our family, it is clear in Scripture the responsibility we as Christians have to the fatherless.

Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless
maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. 
Psalm 82:3

Seek justice,
encourage the oppressed.
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow.  
Isaiah 1:17

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.  
 James 1:27

So now we come humbly before you to ask a question we didn't our first time around.  Will you help us in this journey?  God may or may not be calling you to adopt, but perhaps He's calling you to be part of this ministry, prayerfully or financially.  Adoption is expensive, we're looking somewhere around $25,000 - $30,000, but we know that what God begins, He will finish.  He is faithful to His word.
