Hicks Party of 3

THE STORY:

Even before Brett and I met, God was preparing our hearts for this time in our lives.  Brett's sister, Brenna, is adopted from Romania and I have two brothers who are not biological.  We grew up realizing the importance and beauty of accepting people into your family whether they are blood related or not.  

Fast forward 20 years to when Brett and I met and we individually had the desire to adopt or be foster parents.  The first time we discussed it, I was shocked that we were on the same page (as many of you know, Brett and I don't always share the same opinion LOL).  While we have not had a strong desire to have our own kids, adoption or fostering has just been one of those things we've accepted as being something that would happen in the future of our relationship.    

God has put it on our hearts that now is the time to adopt!  We feel strongly about saving a kid's life now who would otherwise be stuck in a life without unconditional love and the opportunities we can provide him.  Our vision of our future dinner table includes 4 kids from different ethnicities.  We believe this will provide a true view of the kingdom of God right in our home.  

"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me" - Mark 9: 37

We are currently going through the home study process to adopt a boy from South Korea through Holt International.  We are on a timeline to get our kid in 1 1/2 years.  He will be around 1 1/2 - 2 years old once we finally have him home with us.  

We are scared and excited all at the same time but we know God is in control and He will provide!  We would love for you to be a part of our story.  The adoption will cost around $50,000 so we could use all the help we can get!  Here's how you can help:
