Adopting From Ghana

Our Story

Our Story Image

We are from Mason City, Iowa. We have 3 children and are anxiously and sometimes impatiently awaiting the moment when we will meet our new son who is currently living in Ghana.

We have always been open to adoption and after being challenged with obeying God with whatever he had for us we decided to take the leap into pursuing adoption. Our daughter however was not excited about the idea of adoption and adamantly did not want us to proceed, so we did not at that time. We did begin to pray that God would give her the same burden for orphans as He had given us. God then brought a new best friend into her life and "coincidentally"(we know better than to think it was coincidental) her new friend and 3 of her friends siblings were adopted. God used this friend to soften our daughters heart and give her a passion for adoption. Last Mother's Day, she gave us a card that said "I AM READY TO ADOPT!" That leads us to the present and we are sure that God has a special plan for our family. We are looking forward to the two trips we will be making to Ghana.
