New Adoption Family

Meet our 13th family, what a cool story!!

Matthew and I have been married for 2 and a half years and live in Asheville, NC. I am an RN, and after the earthquake this year, went down to aid in disaster relief at a clinic in Penier, outside of Port-au-Prince. Once arriving, God had other plans for me that specific trip, and I ended up at Children of Hope Orphanage and Hospice to take care of the little ones there that hadn't had a check up in a while. There, I met Ashley, and our world turned upside down. Since then, we have been pursuing her adoption as the process of patience grows us stronger as a family.

Adoption was always "plan A" for us, we just didn't know it was going to be God's plan for our first little one until now. As you can imagine, we are thrilled to be chosen to be Ashley's parents, and despite the hardships, we press on, knowing that His plans are good and His timing is perfect, no matter the outcome. The greatest thing we are learning in this process is that she is HIS and not ours...and that even if she never gets to actually be in our home due to some unforseen cirumstance, she is always HIS and always in our hearts. And she will always be HIS even if she gets to be ours legally someday. We have committed to love her and support her, no matter what the outcome. The products you are buying are bringing us one step closer to having her in our arms. Thank you for supporting us and helping us to love her!!!!

Ahhh!!!! I KNOW them! In looking through your site I just happened to come across this and see my sweet friend Sarah's face! What a blessing! We worked together at a high adventure youth camp in E. TN and I've been able to follow their story of hope in trying to adopt Ashley! LOVE that she's on your site!
