Our First Step In Our Journey

Dear Family and Friends,

We write this letter to you in celebration of an exciting event in our lives. We are expanding our family through adoption! Years ago, as a teen, Vanessa felt God’s calling on her heart to adopt a child. In recent years, Chris too has felt the Lord calling him to adopt and help a child in need of a home. Since our marriage five years ago, we have been waiting on the Lord to guide us on when to begin the adoption process. It has become very clear to us this past year that the time is upon us.

We have been working locally through God’s Children Adoption Agency and are just about finished with our home study. At this point in our lives, we know that God has called us to adopt a baby through domestic infant adoption. Outside of domestic infant adoption, we have no idea what God has in mind for our family. However, we are excited and eager to find out!

We feel so incredibly blessed and loved to have family and friends such as you to share in this incredible experience. We will need plenty of prayer as we continue on with the process. We ask that you specifically pray for the birthmother, whoever she may be. Pray that her heart would be prepared and at peace. Please also pray for the child of our hearts that is to come into our home. Pray that God would specifically prepare him or her for our family. Also pray for our family; that the Lord would prepare us for another child and prepare Zoelle to be a big sister!

Our main prayer right now is concerning finances. We feel very strongly that this is from the Lord, but also know that it will be difficult for us financially. We believe in a God of miracles and ask that if you feel called to be a part of this miracle, to please consider giving to us financially in support of our adoption. We know and trust that God will provide and we look forward to seeing just how He will.

In the meantime, if you would like to keep updated with where we are in the adoption process, or to make a donation, please visit our blog at:
Thank you so very much for your prayers and financial help. We feel blessed that you are a part of our child’s new life.

Love in Him,

Christopher, Vanessa, & Zoelle Jacobson
