Jonathan & Lindsey Hays

Jonathan & Lindsey Hays

Brentwood, TN

Jonathan and Lindsey Hays both felt the desire to adopt before they met. In 2013 they started the process to adopt from Ethiopia. They did a Both Hands project in 2014 and wouldn’t have been able to bring their daughter home without it! They also had a surprise pregnancy, and their first daughter, Delia was born in 2014. The Hays family brought Melina Rose home from Ethiopia in 2016, and their youngest, Zadie Bell, was born in 2017. Jonathan and Lindsey started praying about adopting again when Zadie was born, and they feel that God is calling them to it once again.
