Eric & Hannah Shipton

Clemmons, NC

Eric and Hannah have been married for 8 years and have three biological children: Ethan, Caleb and Annabelle. In 2012, Eric and Hannah felt that God was leading them to adopt. At that point, they began the process of international adoption. They didn’t know which country or age of the child, but they continued to obey God in His call trusting that at the right moment a child or children would be joined with their forever family.

Waiting Children

Orphans Liberia

The country they were planning to adopt from has changed three times – from Colombia, to Ethiopia and now to Liberia. The Shiptons were on a wait list for Ethiopia from 2013 to the spring of 2017 when the Ethiopian government suspended international adoption. During the summer of 2017, God opened doors for them to adopt from Liberia. The Shiptons are open to adopting 1-3 children from Liberia and hope to bring home their newest family members in the spring of 2018.
