New Families

I am so excited to announce that as of this past weekend, we have 2 new families participating in our Chosen Child {Adoption Band} fundraiser!

{Remember, we are donating 1/2 the proceeds of every adoption band sold to help these sweet families raise money for their adoptions!}

So BUY BUY BUY these cute bands!

You can purchase them right here in the Online Shop!

Now I would like to introduce to you our new families...

Rob and Nichole Akins

Rob and I have been married for almost 7 years and live in Madison, Alabama. About a year and a half ago we begin to try to conceive a child. Adoption has always been in our hearts and after lots of talking and praying, we feel that God is leading us to adoption. There are millions of children all over the world that need and deserve a loving family and we KNOW that we can give a child a great life.

We have started the adoption process with Catholic Family Services in Alabama and are anxiously awaiting completing our family. We sincerely appreciate ALL of your help. We ask that you continue to pray for our family and our future baby on this journey to each other.

Matt and Kelly Summers

***Update: The Summers brought their child home! Their adoption is finalized and they are no longer one of the families that we support.

We are the Summers from Texas but are living in Corsica working for an international company. We have been married for 3 1/2 years and have a precious little girl Sadie. Recently, The Lord asked if we would do something for Him, if we would welcome a little child on his behalf {Mt 18:5} and show sacrificial Love to him as He has to us. He asked if we would let His Love shine through us and this new child to those around us. And he promised that every penny, all the paper work, every court date...All of it would be worth it. He promised that he would be at every obstacle with us, helping us defeat it. And He showed us that by not doing it would cost the child so much more then it could ever cost us. St. Francis of Assisi says it well, "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

We cannot wait to welcome the next child God has planned for us into our family. We realize that Sadie didn't choose us, and these precious {147 million} orphans didn't choose their situation either, and we must "act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with our God." Micah 6:8. Please join us on our journey and help raise awareness for these precious children of God.

Pin It!
