A Waiting Child

Orphan USA

Patrick and Samantha are working with Illini Christian Ministries agency, an adoption attorney as well as trying to self match. Patrick and Samantha knew adoption was in their future when Samantha was pregnant with their youngest son. The pregnancy wasn't easy and the labor and delivery was traumatic and as a couple, they decided Samantha wouldn't carry anymore children to grow their family. They are so excited to bring a little one home through adoption!
