We have always desired to adopt and talked about it while we were engaged and dating. We both come from families and church families where adoption was embraced and supported. We got pregnant a year and half into our marriage and gained our wonderful daughter Ceile. As we pursued having a second biological child, we went through a series (4 consecutive) of painful miscarriages. After we took the time to heal from these experiences we came back around to adoption, began praying, and felt it was the Lord’s desire to build our family through adoption.

Simply put, we are adopting because of love. We have more to give and a daughter who longs to share a childhood with a little brother or sister. While our family is content, it is not complete — and we know that adoption is God’s Plan-A for our life, not a secondary solution. We have no doubt that God loves this child, and through His great love for each of us, we will love this child unconditionally.

Cindy

Widow | Tennessee

Cindy met her husband Larry on the football fields of the Franklin Cowboys in 2008, and they married in January of 2019. Together they enjoyed spending time with family, going to church, and taking beach vacations.

In late 2019, Larry received a double diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s and colon cancer and went to be with Jesus on August 9, 2021. Cindy can’t help but smile realizing that Larry is fully restored and living in the presence of Jesus. While she is heartbroken that their life together was cut short, she knows they will spend eternity together in heaven. Cindy has been friends with the Pattons since 2017 and is so thankful to work together to bring their baby home.
