The Story

Hey everyone!

This is a crazy-cool story! While living in Nashville, Tennessee for six years, we were surrounded by friends that adopted, and it set our family on a path to begin talking and praying about adoption. During our time in Nashville, Elijah and Justin had the opportunity to go to Kenya, Africa where they met our sponsored child through Compassion International. Soon thereafter, Trish met our other sponsored child in Guatemala. Through those experiences, our vision was to pursue international adoption. 

Last fall, we wanted to be open to all the different possibilities of adoption and started the foster care certification process. After going through part of the class requirement, we realized that wasn’t the direction we should pursue as we were starting the church. As we were planting Hope City, a woman and her family started attending our church who runs an adoption agency. We shared with her the journey we’ve been on to adopt.

Last Thursday we received an email from our sweet friend about two kids in need of a home. The subject said: Possible Adoption Situation. Then the email said, "Hey Justin & Trisha! I wanted to share this with you both to see if this is something you would consider?" The little boy is nine years old and the little girl is seven years old. Their siblings have already been adopted by another family. We looked at each other and said, "How can we not consider this?" 

We didn't have a whole lot of time, but took the weekend to pray about God's direction in adopting these two children. We met with the adoption agency and provided a makeshift profile with some information about our current family for the birthmother to get to know us.

Tonight, we spoke with the birthmother on the phone for an hour, and just got word that she has chosen us to be her children's adoptive family. We are excited, overwhelmed and blown away at God's timing. On Wednesday of next week we will meet the kids for a play-date and then bring them home next weekend. Like in 10 days. 

This whole process has been one that only God could orchestrate. There are so many things that have to come together and a ton of details to be worked out. Throughout this whole process, we've just said to God that we'd walk through the next open door. We didn't get caught up in the paperwork or the financial costs initially because there were so many other details to work through. 

The reality is it will take a village and a miracle to raise the money needed to bring the kids home in 10 days. How can this happen? We are asking for the help of our friends and family in this process. First, we need your prayers. We need God to show up in BIG ways and we desperately need prayer. Secondly, we could use your financial help. We have a very small window to come up with the financial resources to cover all the adoption expenses. 

We hope you'll join us on this amazing adventure! Six days ago we were a family of five. Then, God.

Every Tweet you share, every Facebook post you give to this cause will help us get the word out on our God sized dream to become a family of seven. Every financial contribution you make will go directly to helping provide these two precious children a home. We will update you every step of the way! 

Thank you, 
Justin and Trish, Micah, Elijah and Isaiah

Hey guys! It's been a wild ride since sharing our adoption journey with you this summer. We wanted to give you a chance to connect with our kids and hear a little more of their story and meet them via Facebook live. Our family would love to say thank you for your support and love. We're thinking Saturday, December 30th in the afternoon. We'll post more details as the day gets closer...but we'd love for you to join us and meet Jailyn and Janiyah if you haven't been able to do so in person. 

Hope to see you on Saturday! 

Justin and Trish

Good evening friends. I just wanted to take a second to update you on how things are going with our adoption. We have been overwhelmed and so grateful for you prayers, encouragement and support. We truly wish we could hug every single one of you!

We got to spend the entire morning with the kids. We had a great time with them, went to lunch at Chick-Fil-A, and ended our time together at Isaiah's basketball game. They sounded excited when we talked about them becoming a part of our family and moving into our house. Their biggest question is, "When?" I can't imagine not knowing something so huge.

After our visit our case worker called and said that the birth mom would like to have the transition take place this Thursday. So we will be busy with paperwork and home visits and fingerprinting and a ton of other requirements.

We will most likely have the kids with us permanently Friday.

It has been an amazing journey and one of which I am in awe. We literally could not have done this without you. Thank you seems so small a word to try to convey our hearts.

Father's Day tomorrow at Hope City Church will have a special meaning to me personally, and to our family.

I wish we could post pictures and share videos, and introduce you to them. They are just the cutest. Hopefully this time next week we can make a proper introduction.

Thank you again from the bottom of our heart! We love you, friends!
