John & Allyson Sapp

December 9, 2023 | Lakeland, FL

We both have always known that we wanted to be parents, but the journey to parenthood has not been an easy one for us. After years of struggling with infertility, undergoing several IVF treatments, and experiencing heartbreaking losses, we began to question whether parenthood was really in the cards for us. However, despite the challenges we faced, we always believed that it was God’s will for us to become parents.

Recently, we started to see that God was using our struggles to set us up for something truly special. He was teaching us that beauty can come from heartbreak and brokenness. We began to open our hearts not only to the idea of having a child but also to the mother of that child. We realized that adoption was the path that God had chosen for us.

Throughout this journey, we have leaned on Psalm 37:4, which says, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” We have found comfort in this verse and have learned to trust in God’s plan for our lives. Although the wait for a child can be difficult, we know that God has a perfect timing for everything and that he has already chosen the child who will be a part of our family. We are excited to see what the future holds and are grateful for the lessons that God has taught us along the way.

Baby Girl

Domestic Adoption | United States

In October 2023, we received an exciting call saying we have been matched with a birth mom. For the next 3 months we continued to fundraise, prepare our house, lives, and our community for the arrival of this sweet girl. We can not wait to bring this sweet baby girl home to join our family.
