Bud & Tammy Tarter

Blue Springs, MO

We are the Tarter family! God called us to adopt in 2004. That would not come to fruition until the Summer of 2014 when we began our first adoption from China. God really grew our faith and our hearts for the orphan during that time and now orphan care is truly part of who we are! We have 3 grown children and their sweet little sister brought home in the winter of 2015.

Little Girl

Orphan China

After being home a year God began to nudge our hearts again to bring home another little one from China. It has been a crazy hard journey this last year but God has grown our hearts once again, but more in the lines of trusting His plan! We were matched with our newest daughter in February and plan to travel in the next 5 month to bring her home! We are so very thankful for the call of adoption on our lives!
