UPDATE (01.01.15)

We are living in Uganda as long as it takes for us to complete Oliver's adoption and bring him home. He's currently really sick and we're fighting hard to find out what all his medical issues are and to get him diagnosed. We are so incredibly humbled and thankful for every single person that has supported, loved, and prayed for us to get to Uganda. It took a village to raise the funds to cover his adoption costs. We still have a lot of out of pocket costs like living expenses in Uganda, housing, food, daily transportation, and all of Oliver's medical expenses, treatment, flights home, etc to pay while in country for the next few months. Several people have asked how they can donate so we re-opened the donation page for anyone who feels led to help us in this way. We are forever grateful for the way you have loved our family. May God gain great glory through Oliver's story!

Much love,
Justin & Keary


Our story is pretty simple. God called us to adopt as a way of growing our family and we said "YES".

We are excited to announce that we've been matched with a little boy in Uganda! He's adorable, perfect, and we can't wait to bring him home!

Things are moving fast to complete the adoption since he's considered an "emergecny case" and needs medical care in the states ASAP, so everything is being expedited. And because of that we have ONE MONTH to raise $30,000 so we can bring our little munchkin home. God has brought us this far and we have so much faith that he will see his plans through!

We want to invite you to be a part of our story and this is one of the ways you can help! Not every family has been called to adopt, but we have all been called to love and care for the orphan in some way. By supporting another family that is in the adoption prcoess is a beautful way you can be a part of orphan care!

We obviously don't have 9 months like during a pregnancy to get a whole nursery set up and buy all the things we need, and we have to get things quick because we'll be leaving soon. People have been asking what we need, so we set up two registries with items needed to care for this little guy. Two weeks ago we didn't have a thing, and slowly but surely we're getting his room ready. If you own an etsy shop or something of the sort and would love to donate something, please e-mail me for a shipping address> [email protected] We would gladly share your product on our instagam too! One registry below is for BuyBuyBaby and the other is for Amazing Registry for other unique items.

Posted on November 11, 2014

We are blown away by all of you who are standing with us in this journey and supporting us in more ways than one to bring our son home! God is moving mountains for our little boy!

A lot of people have still been asking how they can make donations to go towards covering the cost of our flights and our stay in Uganda, which could be a while, so we have extended the date on the fundraiser so that donations can still be made.

We are so thankful for all of you who helped get us to where we are! We are forever grateful!

Hugs,
Justin & Keary
