We're Justin and Erinn and we are thrilled to share our journey of adoption with you!
We have been married for 5 years and have lived in Sunny Arizona for 3.5 years! We're original Michiganders who felt the Lord call them to Arizona to be part of a rapidly growing, Jesus glorifying church.
Justin is the Creative Arts Pastor and Erinn is the Communication Arts Director. We both love the Lord and have a heart for the local church.
God is writing our story, and although it may not be ordinary, it is beautiful and extraordinary. Even while we were dating, we hoped and dreamed our story would include adoption down the road. This God-sized dream is not about us, it's about putting a lonely child in a loving family. Psalm 68:6 says, “God places the lonely in families.”
It’s about the God who adopted us into His family. It’s about the Kingdom He’s building in this world. We know that this is not the most traditional way to start a family, but we're so excited this is the way God is calling us to start our family! He's asking us to be bold & brave, to be different, and to give Him the glory through that.
We both traveled to Uganda in June 2014 and were able to witness the devastating need for orphaned children to have forever families, shelter, food, clothing and the love of Jesus. If we can provide that for just one, it is helping change the world for better.
