Kale & Ally Karlen

June 10, 2023 | Royse City, TX

When we got married in October 2021, we knew we were open to the idea of adoption. We knew we wanted a family, and the Lord began to stir in our hearts the idea of creating a family through adoption. We prayerfully started the adoption process in November of 2022 with the heart to love on and care for a child, and to be the hands and feet of Jesus while living out the gospel through this process. We can’t wait to see how the Lord continues to move in our lives and this process of growing our family.

Domestic Adoption

Orphan | United States

We are working with Faithful Adoption Consultants (FAC) to pursue domestic infant adoption. Using consultants allows us to be active with multiple agencies across the country, so we don’t know yet where our child will be from.

Widow | Texas

We have gotten to know Leslie through a ministry program at our church and are so honored to be able to serve her for a day. Leslie lost her husband, Larry, in May of 2022. Leslie works in a nearby school district and has worked in Special Education for 15 years. Leslie lives on several acres with her sons nearby, but has some tasks around the house that need completing as her husband passed during their remodel. We will be performing landscaping/adding flower beds, painting a room, organizing her storage shed and adding a walkway for our Project Day.

A Different Kind of Fundraiser

A team of volunteers is completing a service project of fixing up a widow's home. We are raising sponsorship for our day of service. The funds raised will help an orphan to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
