Kirk & Lily Allen

Knoxville, TN

Kirk and Lily Allen individually grew up with an excitement for adoption as it has blessed both their families. When they got married, they planned on waiting a while before adopting their children first and then having biological children. God changed that plan with a surprise gift quickly after marriage. They now have 2 biological children and are so excited to start the adoption journey they always planned on, even if it's a different order than they imagined. The entire cost of their adoption will be between $30,000 - $40,000.

Baby Allen

Orphan USA

Kirk and Lily are pursuing a Domestic Adoption through Nightlight Christian Adoptions. They chose Nightlight because of the focus and support they give to Birth Mothers. The Allens are passionate about loving and supporting the birth parents as much as possible so that was a key element when searching for an agency. They are not specifying gender or race and are excited to see who their child is going to be.

Ms. Paige

Widow Knoxville, TN

Paige was widowed at 27 when her husband suddenly passed away just three weeks after their son Ben was born. Yard work and home improvements have been a lower priority as she’s been learning to balance solo parenting and working full time while also grieving and working through the trauma of sudden loss.
