Brandon & Kellie
Fall 2017 Awarded Family
Brandon & Kellie live in Minnesota and have been married 4 ½ years. They enjoy spending their free time outdoors, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. God led them to adoption after trying to conceive on their own. They struggled not knowing what God had in store for their family when infertility treatments didn’t seem like the right path. A month before their first appointment with a fertility specialist God led them to adoption. Both have adoption in their families, including Brandon himself being adopted and knew God was calling them to grow their family through adoption instead. They canceled the appointment and started their adoption journey in January of 2017. They are trusting God without limits and looking forward to becoming parents through adoption. They can’t wait to bring home their little one, and show them one of God’s most incredible gifts – family.
"Although adoption was something we both wanted to do we thought it would be so far in the future because the cost of adoption. When we felt God telling us to adopt now we thought it was too far out of reach. We prayed so much about it because we couldn’t shake the feeling God’s plan for our family was adoption. So, from the moment we started the adoption journey and followed God’s calling, we decided to trust God without limits. The farther we got into the adoption process though we started to wonder how God would provide the funds. We weren’t getting very far with funds adding up and every situation we saw seemed too far out of our reach. This adoption grant – we can’t even put into words how much this means to us, how much the foundation means to us, or just how amazing that this grant was exactly what God has in mind from the beginning. It’s been 3 hours since we found out we got this grant and we have cried, rejoiced, and cried some more. I feel as though there really aren’t words to exactly explain just how thankful we are." - Brandon & Kellie
