Our hearts for adoption began as newlyweds when we volunteered at an orphanage in Ethiopia. The children were so precious, and we wanted to take them all home with us! We went on to have two amazing biological daughters, Isabel (9) and Briella (6). Then in 2020, we again felt a call to adopt, and specifically from Haiti!

Orphan | Haiti

We began our adoption journey in August of 2020. A year’s worth of paperwork later, our Dossier arrived in Haiti! We were told to expect to wait at least 3 years for a referral. Surprisingly, we received a referral just 16 months later for a precious 5 year old boy named Daniel! We have been getting to know Daniel over video since February. He is such a sweet boy and we can’t wait to give him a forever family!
