Please help us with an Adoption

Dear Friends and Family,

If you would have asked us even just 2 months ago that we would be adopting, we would have said no. We have honestly never been opposed to adoption, but never imagined it would be the right thing for us. Just 1 month ago after a visit to the temple, we felt very strongly that we should stop our plans for IVF and pursue adoption. Those strong feelings have never left and have only been added upon.

We know that Heavenly Father places certain people in our lives to help us and to teach us. We have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by such good people. We are grateful for all our friends that have been supportive and helpful in getting us to this point. There are a lot of hoops to jump through and social worker reviews (it’s crazy!) so thanks to those who gave us good references and think we are capable parents.

Initially, the move towards adoption seemed very daunting and way out of our league. It is incredible to see divine intervention in your life. We initially told Heavenly Father that he needed to make this very easy for us and we think he has because it seems to have gotten easier and easier. He has slowly opened our hearts to be more accepting and willing to do things we didn’t think we could. We are truly humbled and we hope it continues to go smoothly.

Please help us find the baby that we are praying for to come to our family. You can view our profile and share it here. We hope you will keep your ears open for opportunities for us.

At this point, we are so excited for an adoption (as if we were pregnant)! We can’t wait for the right baby to hurry and come!

Brandon and Connie
