Lacey Ballard

Nashville, TN

I have felt called to adopt for as far back as I can remember. As a child, I actually asked for an Asian baby doll instead of having one that looked like me. I believe that was God's first tug at my heart. Fast forward to my mid-twenties, when I felt called to full time ministry, I just wasn't sure what. About 12 years ago I figured out it was adoption, and in May 2016, in the middle of a Youth Choir Special at church, I broke down and accepted the call.

Noah

Orphan China

I started the adoption process in June 2016, seeking domestic infant adoption. After much prayer, I transitioned to International Adoption in December 2017. I was matched with Noah in May of 2018. Noah is almost 4 years old and has lived in an orphanage in China for almost his entire life. I anticipate bringing him home this fall, so my international process will have taken less than one year.

Ms. Martha

Widow Murfreesboro, TN

Ms. Martha has been a widow for over 5 years. She has lived in Rutherford County, TN her entire life, mostly in Murfreesboro (where she now resides). She has a servant's heart, spending most of her time working with underprivileged children. She and Lacey met at church on a missions trip to New Jersey. She has an amazing servant's heart, and we are looking forward to serving her.
