Meet Wes & Kellee.
Their adoption story began in Kellee’s prayer group. When a woman in her group came home from a mission trip to an orphanage in Beijing, China, she shared with their group about a special little boy with Spina Bifida who had captured her heart. She asked for their group to pray that he could find a “forever family.” Kellee and the rest of the women prayed diligently for this little boy for two years.
During this time Kellee began to feel that God was telling her that they were to become his forever family. She brought home a picture of him and as a family they prayed for him every night. Over time, Wes & Kellee knew God was leading them in this direction.
Three months ago, they were able to bring home 7-year-old, David, home into their forever family!
Listen in as they share their hearts...
God used a number of resources including Lifesong to enable our family to bring one of His dearly loved children into our home. We were aware of the financial burden of the adoption process when we started our journey, but we were confident in His ultimate provision for every expense every step of the way. Through His clear calling and faithful provision, we are also resting in the peace that He will continue to provide EVERYTHING we need. Not just monetarily, but perhaps more importantly, spiritually and emotionally.
We have faced many challenges since arriving home 3 months ago with our newest member: a (now) 7 year old boy with special needs. We are learning to love each other as we overcome a difficult start to this precious boy’s life. God is making Himself know to us in ways we never could have known Him had we not been obedient to His call on our family. We have been blessed to see Him work through friends, family, and even strangers. It has also been incredible to hear stories from other people who have reported being blessed and challenged as they heard the story of our adoption journey.
