Baker Adoption Fund

I have teamed up with Gobena Coffee to raise funds for my adoption.  $4 from every item purchased will go towards my adoption.  On top of that I have received a matching grant so that $4 becomes $8!  Thanks for supporting my adoption and enjoy the fresh coffee!

Have you heard my adoption testimony?

During the past five years I’ve been living in China teaching math at an international school. I have also been leading a yearly high school service trip to Manila, Philippines. For ten days my students work with a kids ministry organization that owns and operates an orphanage with about thirty children. Since I have led this trip for 5 years now, I have grown in my relationship with the children at the orphanage. I have had a lifelong desire to adopt, and my growing relationship with a particular child at this orphanage has spurred me to adopt now. I have just reached the legal age to adopt as a single (according to Filipino laws), but if I were to be married I would have to wait another 3 years before adopting.

The child I am seeking to adopt is an older child, so I don’t want him/her to wait any longer for a forever family! I am ready and capable to provide a loving home now. I do desire to be married in the future, so I trust that God will eventually also provide this child with a loving earthly father. Until then, I will remind him/her that God is his Father, and I will also surround him/her with Godly male influences, such as my father.

This journey has been amazing but challenging so far, but I am encouraged and excited as I press forward.
