Josiah & Mackenzie Smith
From our dating days we both shared a heart and passion for adoption. This passion for adoption comes first and foremost from our Christian faith. We believe God is passionate about adoption, so we are passionate about adoption! In fact, we have intentionally chosen adoption as the first means to grow our family! Our first child may not share genetic codes or eye colors with us, but we want them to recognize their chosen position to be first to receive our love, affection, and devotion as their parents. We eagerly await the day where that dream becomes a reality!
A Waiting Child
We started our adoption journey in October of 2020. Just a few months ago we were graciously chosen and matched with an incredible expectant mom! We have spent the last several months getting to know her and have loved building a relationship with her! The baby is set to be due in October, exactly one year from the official start of our journey! We can’t wait to welcome them in our family!
Ms. Pat is an 80 year old widow. She was married to her late husband Dennis for 56 years. She gave her life to Christ in 1977. She has 2 children, Eric and Kathleen, and 8 grandchildren who are all saved. She just recently found out that she'll be a great grandmother for the first time in February! After her husband passed, a friend invited her to Grace Bible Church. Pat and Dennis had been praying about this move for a while asking God for His direction before he passed. Ms. Pat visited Grace Bible with her friend and she knew this is where God wanted her to be.
A Different Kind of Fundraiser
