Matt & Tiffany N.
Tiffany and I had felt God calling us to adopt for several years. We had served as foster parents for 2 ½ years, seeking to adopt domestically, but God chose to close that door for us. Discouraged, and frankly a little jaded by the foster care system, we pushed back from the idea of adoption for several years.
After the birth of our third child, we again began to consider the idea of adoption. For us, it was not the idea that we were going to “rescue a child”, but that there were children out there in the world who deserved to love, and be loved. We began to consider adopting internationally, but knew the costs were significant. We weren’t sure where the money would come from, but after prayer and reflection, we felt that this was the direction we were being drawn in.
Though we were diligently applying for grants and contributing as much of our own funds as possible, we still had a long way to go, and there were no guarantees that we would meet our goals.
It was at that time that A Child Waits Foundation stepped in and assisted our family with meeting the financial milestones that were required to continue to adopt.
We’ve been back from China with Emma Ai Zhen for around 3 months now, and we can see the faithfulness of God’s hand throughout our journey. The team at A Child Waits Foundation played a huge role in being the hands of feet of Jesus to a little girl in an orphanage in China. Our family is beyond blessed and forever thankful to A Child Waits Foundation!
