And every family faces different challenges or barriers along the way. As our founders like to say, the adoption journey is “gloriously hard”.
Through Adoption Aid grants, Show Hope helps to break down one barrier in particular—the financial barrier. As you help make these grants possible through your giving, you can also follow the stories of a few of the families impacted and come alongside them in prayer.
Jason and Rachel have traveled extensively, serving others through short-term trips. Their passion to be used by God, share the love of Christ, and pursue adventure, coupled with a longing for children, came together in 2016, when they adopted their son, Dominick (now 5), from Thailand. They have now received an Adoption Aid grant to help in the process of pursuing their second adoption from Thailand.
Since Jane was a child, she has felt a pull toward intercountry adoption. In November 2015, the Littmanns attended Show Hope’s Fellowship Weekend, and it was there that Aaron felt God awaken his heart to adoption in a whole new way as well. Now, they are in the process of adopting from South Africa with the help of a Show Hope Adoption Aid grant. Throughout the highs and lows of their adoption journey, the Littmanns have been reminded to trust God’s plans rather than their own.
Kim and Jared walked through the heartache of infertility for years before feeling God leading them to grow their family through adoption. Kim is Thai-American, and she and Jared are thrilled to be in the process of adopting a child from Thailand with the help of a Show Hope Adoption Aid grant. Through the highs and lows of their journey, they have remained confident in God’s faithfulness and his plan for their family.
Over the past several years, Aimee and James have felt drawn to the people and culture of Central and South America, and now, with the help of an Adoption Aid grant, they are in the process of adopting a child from Colombia. Through the adoption process, their faith has grown stronger as they have learned more about God’s provision, timing, and faithfulness to fulfill his promises.
From the beginning of their marriage, Nathan and Jessica have discussed growing their family through adoption. Jessica worked for an adoption agency before getting married, and Nathan has always felt drawn to adoption. As they began to pray about starting their family, both Nathan and Jessica felt God leading them to adoption. Now, with the help of a Show Hope Adoption Aid grant, the Townsons are in the process of adopting from India and are eagerly awaiting the day they welcome their child home.
