Samuel

Orphan Ethiopia

"God put a fire in our hearts to dig deep into adoption last June. The push to do research on adoption was very clear and we dove right in--two weeks later we officially decided we were going to adopt from Ethiopia. About two weeks into the process we received an email about a waiting 2 month old baby boy and were asked if we wanted to see more--um yes! We knew the instant we saw Samuel's face that he was our son. We expedited our home study process and accepted his referral on September 9th, 2016! Now we wait to bring him...

Ms. Samantha

Widow Indianapolis, IN

Samantha's husband, Andrew, passed away almost a year and a half ago at the age of 25 after battling non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Leukemia. Andrew was a star on the Butler basketball team, and later went on to play pro basketball in Lithuania before returning to the U.S. after his diagnosis. Samantha courageously shared their journey publicly and inspired many with their faith throughout their battle. We will be doing some landscaping, which Andrew always did, and is a challenge for Samantha to do now. We are humbled and honored to be able to serve her.
