Ellis & Keri Burgess

Nashville, TN

We have been married for 9 years and started trying to expand our family a few years in. We’ve both always felt led to adopt, but didn’t know when the right time would be. After nearly 7 years of trying with no success and no answer as to why, we decided to start fertility treatments. When those initial treatments didn’t work, we decided that instead of moving to the next step, we’d take a step back and seek God for his wisdom. After a lot of prayer, we felt that now was the time God was leading down the path of adoption. We have been blessed abundantly and want to share that with a child as we grow together as a family.

A Waiting Child

Orphan USA

After a lot of prayer and research we felt led to adopt an infant domestically through Bethany Christian Services. We are very open to allow God to bring the child that He has for us. We are looking forward to being matched and starting a relationship with our child and his or hers birth family.

Widow Nashville, TN

Mrs. Mary is the widow we are serving for our Both Hands project. Mary lost her husband 10 years ago and we attend church together. Her home is in need of some tender loving care and we feel honored to be able to bless her through this service project.
