We are Ross and Erin Vanderlaan. We live in Grand Rapids, MI. We have been going through 5 years of infertility. About two years ago we decided to actively pursue adoption. When we were dating we had talked about adoption being a very real possibility of starting a family.

A Waiting Child

Orphan USA

We are currently adopting through Bethany Christian Services. Our hope is to match with an expectant family and have an open adoption. We don't know who our child will be, but we can't wait to meet them!

Ms. Karen

Widow Wyoming, MI

Ross and Erin go to church with Karen. She also lives in Wyoming. Karen is a wonderful giving person who actually adopted her Grandson when he was an infant. We will be painting the interior of her home, repairing a few sections of drywall, and putting up curtains.
