Ashton & Taylor Edwards

November 11, 2023 | Oronogo, MO

Ashton and Taylor have had adoption as an important option for growing their family since they married in 2015. Ashton has always had a heart for adoptees and for children in foster care. Taylor has displayed her heart for young people through not only volunteering with church ministries but by being a compassionate and caring 4th-grade teacher. Together, they hope to grow their family through adoption and are actually considered “match ready” by their agency, Nightlight Christian Adoptions. This means they could get a call to pick up their child any day now!

The Edwards' adoption process began with researching agencies that take really good care of bio-families, in addition to the child and adoptive family. While adoption is beautiful, it isn't without a unique story with people in tough situations. When they found Nightlight Christian Adoptions they were encouraged to hear that they offer so much care to the bio parents and have ethical practices for connecting with expectant parents. While adoption is expensive, they know that money is no boundary when it comes to taking good care of people. They are currently "match-ready" and are having their profile actively shown to expectant mothers.

Ms. Gladys is a staple in their rural community. Taylor and Gladys crossed paths 4 years ago when Taylor taught one of Gladys' grandsons. They have stayed in touch ever since. Gladys' husband passed to be with the Lord about 6 years ago. She continues to shine the love of Jesus as she loves and cares for people. Her love for people is definitely contagious.
