Ryan & Sara Payne

June 22, 2024 | Huntington, IN

We both knew we wanted to adopt before we got married, and we discussed it from the very beginning of our relationship. When we found out that we couldn’t have kids biologically, we knew that adoption was the route God wanted us to take to grow our family. Through our first adoption, God blessed us with a beautiful little girl, Isabella. We both come from big families, and we want to continue to grow our own family and for Isabella to have a sibling or siblings!

**Donations to this project will be matched up to $2,500!!**

Domestic Adoption | United States

We are excited about loving and welcoming another child into our home and making them a part of our family! Our plan is to adopt domestically and locally if possible. We are planning to adopt a newborn and are open to twins.

Ms. Helen

Widow | Indiana

Ms. Helen lost her husband 5 years ago after being married for 46 years. She was a stay-at-home mom and raised three children. She attends the same church as the Paynes. Her husband died very suddenly after returning from an overseas teaching trip where he became ill. Since his passing, she has dealt with her own health issues, which have made it challenging to do house work and finish projects her husband began. Her home is in need of lots of help both inside and outside and we are so thankful we are able to serve and bless her through this service project. We love that we will be able to help a widow who attends our church and to bless her in a huge way!

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?
