Hello, we are the Barsness family! We have been married for almost eight years and have one wonderful son, Jackson. Adoption has been on our hearts from the beginning of our relationship, long before we knew the struggles and losses we would experience while growing our family biologically. We believe that God has called us to adopt and we look forward to growing our family through adoption!

Orphan | United States

We began our adoption journey in July of 2019. After 20 months of quietly waiting, we were chosen by an amazing expectant mom in Florida whose baby is due in June! We continue to rest in God’s faithfulness and continued provision in our lives as we look forward to bringing Baby home this June! The total cost for adoption will be around $50,000.

While growing up, Kristi and her family loved and nurtured over 60 young children through foster care! We are excited and honored to give back to Kristi through this project!
