Andrew & Elizabeth Schaeperkoetter

June 29, 2024 | St. Louis, MO
Our names are Andrew & Elizabeth! We have always dreamed of a big family. We are blessed with a beautiful 4 year old daughter, Marie, and now feel called to grow our family through adoption. We believe God adopts each of us through Baptism and want to share that love with another child! We can’t wait to welcome another little one into our family! Help us bring this baby home!

Thanks to some generous donors, donations to this project will be matched up to $4000!

Baby Boy or Girl

Domestic Adoption | United States

We started pursuing domestic infant adoption in Fall 2023 and are waiting to be matched with a sweet birth family and are trusting God for His timing! We are privileged to be working with adoption agencies through Faithful Adoption Consultants that prioritize the well-being of the birth mom and baby. While we are still waiting to be matched, the average cost of adoptions that we're seeing is $68,000.

Ms. Kim

Widow | Missouri

Kim is a joyful woman who is excited for us to help out around her house. Kim's husband, an Army Veteran, passed away tragically just a year ago. Kim is mostly paralyzed and unable to talk due to a stroke. Her daughter lives with her, taking care of her mom while balancing college and work. Kim now lives in what was her parents' home.

A Different Kind of Fundraiser

A team of volunteers is completing a service project of fixing up a widow's home. We are raising sponsorship for our day of service. The funds raised will help a child to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
