A new plan "A"!
Our family is: Grant from Australia, Brooke from New Zealand and five-year-old Max, born in the USA!
For a long time we have hoped and prayed that our family would grow. Now those hopes and prayers are close to being realized - not in the way we first imagined, but in a way that is beautiful, mysterious and much needed. Adoption was initially our "back up plan". However, in the midst of years of fertility struggles we began to think, read and pray... and watch friends around us welcome children into their families via adoption. Our hearts began to ache for birth-mothers in crisis who bravely choose a life for their baby and for the "orphans" who need families. When we realized that adoption was well and truly in our hearts we dropped our old Plan "A" and took on a new one: Adoption. After all, we believe in a God of redemption and grace and new Plan "A"s. Feeling certain in our spirits and undaunted by the seemingly impossible financial hurdles, we have begun the journey to adopt a baby from within the United States.
We hope you will join us on our domestic adoption journey. Please pray for us, share our blog with others and consider helping financially. The needs are great. We appreciate your support from the bottom of our Aussie, Kiwi and Tennessee hearts! Thank you all.
Grant, Brooke and Max
