Alex and Andrea Ewers

“[God] doesn’t waste time. This time of waiting has a purpose, and we have been preparing our hearts and home so that, when we do get to hold our son, we will be in the best position to adjust and attach with him.”

GIVE

Alex and Eve Choi

“Waiting is hard. But we are reminded of the Israelites in the Old Testament as they wandered around in the desert for 40 years. They also had to wait to enter the Promised Land. We are learning that we need the Lord more than we need to be in control. And the Lord keeps his promises.”

GIVE

Daniel and Avey Jane Lute

“I have experienced the love of God in new ways as we think about how he loves us just the way we are, unconditionally. We remember feeling these things when we had our daughters through birth, and while all of those things are very true, it’s been neat to experience such love in a new way.”

GIVE

Mike and Tina Deramo

“Several years ago, the Lord started speaking to my heart that his desire was for us to bring another child into our home through adoption,” said Tina. “I started giving him all the reasons (excuses) why this was not a good idea. But I can still hear his response so clearly. ‘With men, this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible.’ My excuses were no longer plausible.”

GIVE

Junior and Katie Jamreonvit

“Through it all, God is teaching us to trust him in all things, including his sovereign care over our son while we wait. It is a huge encouragement and blessing to know that there are people we may never get to meet in person who are helping in a very tangible way to bring our child home.”

GIVE

Tim and Sarah Epting

“My motto through the entire process has been ‘God’s got this!’ with each hiccup in the road,” Sarah said. “We know he called us to this, and if he called us, he will make a way.”

GIVE

Brandon and Kathy Eiff

“[God] has given us the eyes and the heart to see Chloe for who he created her to be,” Kathy said. “We are trusting in his plan, his provision, and his purpose. And so, here we are, years from God’s first call on our lives to adopt, in pursuit of Chloe.”

GIVE

Jeremy and Addie Joslyn

“There is a story being woven and all the details may never be known on earth,” said Addie. “If I believe God has ordained this whole process, then I need to take a step when it’s our time to do so, and sit and wait when it’s our time to be still.”

GIVE

Justin and Sarah Jones

“We decided together that adoption was what God had called us to do, and despite some lingering fears and uncertainties, we moved forward in faith. It's amazing how adoption connects you with other families, and their wisdom is so valuable.”

GIVE

Joel and Antoinette Shope

“God has taught us an incredible amount of patience so far in our journey. As much as we want to bring our child home as soon as possible, we have learned to trust in God’s will and timing.”

GIVE

Gary and Paula Martin

Josie hoped her little sister’s adoption paperwork would be done by her birthday, and that’s exactly what happened. It was a sweet gift. And in the waiting, God has taught the Martin family to trust his timing. “We are so thankful to everyone who has donated to Show Hope to help bring our daughter home,” they said.

GIVE

Cory and Amanda Kick

“God has taught us that his ways are so much higher than ours. He’s bigger than all the hurdles and fees and medical appointments. He’s bigger than our doubts and he can handle our questions.”

GIVE

Alan and Emily Bunn

“We can say with absolute certainty—adoption has changed our lives forever and for the better,” the Bunn family said. “The love, grief, beauty, and brokenness that surrounds adoption is more than words can really describe.”

GIVE

Joshua and Jaclyn Johnston

“We expected that becoming parents would flip our world upside down, and it did. But we didn't expect the deep affection we feel for China and the Chinese people as well as the almost immediate kinship we feel with other adoptive families.”

GIVE

Brad and Brooklyn Brown

“The biggest thing that has surprised me during this journey is my own change of heart,” Brooklyn said. “As I have learned and grown through all of this I have become very compassionate for birth moms and their difficult decisions. We are open and expectant for what God has for us.”

GIVE

Michael and Stephanie Mann

“As we began to talk about growing our family, adoption was our first thought,” Stephanie said. “We've seen his faithfulness demonstrated through the support of others. The amount of prayers that have been given to us, the emotional support, and the financial investment have so clearly been good gifts from our Father.”

GIVE

Kristopher and Heidi Kenney

“Even the times that were the hardest and when it felt that things weren’t moving, God was behind the scenes fighting our battles for us. He has been piecing it all together the whole time. It has been incredible.”

GIVE

Michael and Jayme Yates

“God has authority over every step in this process. He has been near to our family, revealing himself and answering so many prayers along the way. He has shown us love through our church community as people have come around us to support us.”

GIVE

Otto and Krista Skoog

“From the time we started the process, we have faced one obstacle after another, yet God has faithfully guided us past each barrier,” the Skoog family said. “At 51 years old, it is both exciting and scary to think of starting over raising a child, but when God calls you to do something, obedience comes joyfully.”

GIVE

Robert and Danielle Cervi

“This opportunity has refilled our patience and helped strengthen our faith by, once again, reminding us that God will provide at exactly the right time—that he is always on time. Thank you so very much.”

GIVE

Joshua and Ruth McCraney

“We are not alone—our loved ones are sharing this journey with us. The counsel, wisdom, monetary gifts, and overall love have been nothing short of amazing, and we are seeing firsthand the power of God through his sons and daughters.”

GIVE

Jordan and Rebecca Ballard

“We were reminded of Jesus’ words in Mark 9: 37, ‘Whoever welcomes one of these little ones in my name welcomes me.’ We stepped out in faith and began the journey.”

GIVE

Alexander and Misty Grant

“What has surprised us most is the generosity of the body of Christ in supporting us, whether by giving financially, faithfully praying, or just being a listening ear. We've been astounded by the outpouring of love and support.”

GIVE

Christopher and Amanda Hart

“There are still many unknowns as to who our child is and when he or she will come home, but we know God knows and he is watching over his or her precious life.”

GIVE

Jacob and Katie Rivera

“It is hard to do all the math and see that the numbers don't add up, but then also have faith that they will when they need to. God has been revealing his plan as we get closer and closer, and it really is amazing to see his plan unfold and see his work firsthand.”

GIVE

Peter and Leigh Grames

“Separately, we heard God inviting us to adopt, and then when we shared it with each other, we had such a burst of optimism and unity. This has helped propel us through this challenging process.”

GIVE

Daniel and Elizabeth Grubb

“God continuously reminds us that he is in control, he knows who is in our family, and he knows when they will be with us. He knows the exact timing for each dollar, signature, and plane ride.”

GIVE

Andrew and Sara Cenci

“In November 2018, we had a chance to hear about what adoption means to God, why it's important, why we as a church need to care for orphans, and how we can be involved in the adoption process … and we knew we wanted to move forward, and this was going to be how God would grow our family.”

GIVE

Chad and Melia McNatt

“The waiting has given us time to prepare ourselves and children for our growing family. We want our kids to know that they have a purpose, their needs will be met, their voices will be heard, and they have a place in our family.”

GIVE

Mark and Alicia Lovejoy

“We have both been surprised by how God has used the process of adoption to grow our hearts and teach us grace. He has brought us together and stripped away a ton of selfish fear as we take each step toward our child.”
