Helping Others Adopt...

It is with excitement, joy, anticipation, thankfulness, humility, and delight that I announce the beginning of a ministry. Ryan and I are opening a home study and post-placement agency in south central Kentucky. The mission of our agency is to help orphans by assisting families to grow through adoption. Our office will be located in Franklin but we will serve families throughout Kentucky. Our hope is to truly live by James 1:27 and help orphans by finding them forever families. We work with families who are pursuing international and domestic adoption. Our services include home studies, adoption education, and post placement visits. We have been blessed to experience adoption ourselves and hope to share in that joy by helping other families adopt. You can find out more about our agency and what we do by visiting our website: www.foreverfamilyadoption.com. You can also find us on Facebook at Forever Family Adoption. If you have questions or know of someone who is interested in adopting, please tell them about us and we will be happy to meet with them to discuss adoption. It is amazing to look back and see how God has guided us in this direction long before we knew what His plans were for us, from me getting my Masters in Social Work to adopting Emma and educating other families about adoption before we started our agency.

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

Here we are God, use us to help orphans find forever families.

We chose a tree with hearts as leaves for our logo because families are based on more than just biology. A family is created with love and adoption is an act of love that creates a forever family.
