Keith Von Allmen & Laura King

November 18, 2023 | Johnsburg, IL
Keith and Laura live in Johnsburg, IL, and have spent their careers as public servants. They are a blended family, married in 2016, and have spent the last several years focusing on creating bonds with Laura’s children. They have prayed for God’s guidance on how they can best serve His will. Through prayerful consideration, God has put the call to adopt upon their hearts. Keith and Laura are currently waiting to be matched with a child or a sibling group from Burundi, Africa.

Orphan | Burundi

Keith and Laura began the adoption process in 2022. They currently have an approved home study and are waiting to be matched with their adoptive children by the Central Authority in Burundi. They have been approved for a child or sibling group between the ages of 0-8. Once they are matched, they will fly to Africa to meet their new kiddos and bring them home to become part of their family.

Ms. Christine

Widow | Illinois

Keith and Laura know Christine through their church. Christine and her husband have always been involved in helping to serve others, since Ron's passing five years ago, the list of home maintenance chores and repairs have been piling up for Christine. Keith and Laura are happy to help Christine with this service project to get some work done, alleviate some of her burden and remind Christine that she is not alone.
