We have felt the calling to adopt internationally for several years. After we were married in 2007 we began to research different countries for adoption quickly realizing at the time we were not old enough nor had been married long enough to adopt. Josh felt strongly that the Lord was leading us to adopt…maybe even before we had a child biologically.
A couple of years pass…Surprise! In August, 2010 we learn we are pregnant!!! We are overjoyed!
End of August, 2010 we learn from our Pastor, Bro. Chad Grayson about the Roma children in the country of Serbia and an opportunity to adopt these precious children who are living in poverty and needing a home.
September, 2010, we feel the Lord’s leading to begin the process of adoption in Serbia to bring home a precious Roma baby!
October, 2010, due to my pregnancy we knew the adoption agency would have to approve our special situation (I would not be able to travel March – June 2011). Praise the Lord! They are willing to work with us!
November, 2010, we began the application process and found out the gender of our “Home Baby” on November 22, 2010!....IT'S A BOY! So excited!
December, 2010, We have been approved for the adoption!
