Al & Liz Marien

June 5, 2021 | Bryant, WI

Al and Liz (Seidl) Marien both grew up in Antigo and have been married for 8 years. They have always dreamed and planned on having a family, but, sometimes God has different plans than the ones you lay out. They have explored many routes and are active in the local area foster care program, but, have decided that adoption is the path God is revealing to them. The estimated cost to bring home their baby is $48,000.

Their path to adoption has had many twists and turns, and they greatly appreciate everyone’s support in helping them meet this dream of building their family.

Eileen continues her dedication to service through multiple roles within their church, and volunteering with Living Waters International - Aid for African Catholic Missions, whom she’s traveled with to East Africa four times.
