Nelson Adoption Fundraiser

Hi There! We have teamed up with Gobena Coffee to raise funds for our adoption.  50% of everything you purchase will go towards our adoption!  On top of that we have received a matching grant!  Now, that 50% becomes 100%.  That’s right, 100% of what you spend on this site will go towards our adoption (up to our grant amount)!!  Enjoy the fresh roasted coffee!  And don’t forget if you spend $50 or more you get free shipping!

Ever since we have been married, we have had a heart for adoption. However our journey toward adoption has not been quick or easy. The Lord graciously gave us biological twins after 6 years of infertility and undergoing fertility treatments, yet He continued to give us a passion for adoption. The beautiful thing is now it is not only Ben and I, but also our kids, that eagerly await the special child the Lord will bring to us. We feel there is more love in our hearts to give to a child.

Our hearts have been stirred by the number of children without a home and the number of lives lost through abortion. These are the voiceless and the defenseless ones. These are the ones the Lord has called his people to see and to care for. Through all the ups and downs of the past three years in pursuing adoption, we have been reminded of God’s persistent love for us. He pursued our hearts relentlessly even though it brought him great grief, which gives me strength to persevere on this difficult and wearisome path toward adoption. One way He loves us is through his people. Our community has been a source of love, prayer, and encouragement throughout this process, for which we are so thankful.  God has created our lives to be woven together and the interweaving of our interdependence upon him and upon each other is a gift in itself. We want to invite you to prayerfully consider engaging in this calling of caring for the fatherless by helping us to achieve our financial goal and bring a child into our forever family this year!
