"Since 2015, all of us have grown together. There have been many days that were hard, frustrating and emotional draining. But the flashes of upside in raising a daughter to be a young lady are already showing in ways we never imagined. We have also learned so much that never would have been possible without adopting our daughter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Deckman family adopted this sweet young girl, out of birth order, from the Philippines and they have shared with us what the process was like for them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“The adoption process was long and arduous, but it strengthened our faith and was worth every minute. From the moment we began filling out applications to the moment we brought our daughter home took almost exactly three years. But the Lord sustained us and helped us grow as a family even before she came home with us. Having her with us has been a continual blessing and has only increased our appreciation for adoption and all of the wonderful people involved in that life-altering process.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Adoption has allowed us to see so intimately how God can take the most heartbreaking of situations and use normal, average people to make something more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Our adoption journey has not been a straight, paved and easy road, and yet it's a part of our story we are so eternally grateful God called our family into. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are considering adoption, remember that God doesn't need perfect, he just needs people willing to love, and perhaps feel uncomfortable, as he fills in all the gaps with his abundant love and grace." -an adoptive mom & dad⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We love this insight and encouragement from this adorable family!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Adoption is beautiful, it is hard and at times it seems impossible but it is 100% worth it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our boys walked into our lives and stole our hearts instantly. It was a love that we didn’t think was possible to feel for 2 little boys we just met for the first time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our adoption story was 3 years in the making. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We experienced so much frustration, fear, hope and joy within those 3 years to be where we are today and we would do it 100 times over to have our boys."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-A beautiful family ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
