Caleb & Mandy Hartwell

May 11, 2024 | Edmond, OK

We are the Hartwell Family! We have been married for 9.5 years and have 2 biological children. Adoption has been on our hearts for many years and we want to answer God’s call to look after orphans (James 1:27). We know there is more love in our hearts and space in our home to grow our family, and are grateful for the opportunity to adopt!

**Donations to this project will be matched up to $3,000!!**

Domestic Adoption | United States

We started the adoption process in May of 2023 and spent several months getting paperwork and background checks done. We are finally in the matching phase and are waiting for a birthmom to choose our family! During this time of waiting, we have been preparing for the financial aspect of adoption, which is surprisingly costly. However, we are confident that God is going to provide a way!

Widow | Oklahoma

Meet Melissa and her 3 beautiful boys- Karter (13), Kolton (9), and Kipton (3). Melissa loved her husband, Josh, for 23 years and lost him after 14 years of marriage in March 2022. Melissa and her family have been a vital part of our local community for nearly 20 years. After her husband passed, she continued to serve our community by volunteering with the local public elementary school. Melissa and her boys are steadfast, strong pillars who love others so well. But for now, it’s time for us to serve and bless them!
