For the past 4 years, God has been leading our family to adopt siblings. We fully expected to have a few more years to prepare but you know what they say, “Man plans and God laughs!
In April, we were shown a photo of a beautiful brother and sister in an orphanage in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The more we learned about them and prayed over them, the more God made it clear that they are our children.
To say we were overwhelmed would be an understatement! We had found our kids but the cost and uncertainty of adoption terrified us.We asked God to tell us what to do and we would be obedient. He spoke loud and clear, "Pursue your children and I will provide."
Our agency estimates that it will cost us about $60,000 to bring our kids home.
While that is obviously overwhelming, we are trusting God's promise.
When we began sharing this news with those close to us, many asked how they could help us with the many expenses. We set up this page so that you can easily make donations towards our adoption expenses.
100% of your donation will be used to help cover the many adoption expenses, from the legal fees of the adoption and immigration process to the medical and foster care for our children while they are still in Congo. On behalf of all SIX Harneds, thank you for your prayers and support of this fundraiser!

Please note: Until they are legally our children, we can not share identifying photos of them online. That's why we add sunglasses in their photos. ;)
