Stephens Adoption Fund

Hi There!  We have teamed up with Gobena Coffee to raise funds for our adoption.  $4 from every item purchased will go towards our adoption fund.  Thanks for your support and enjoy the fresh roasted coffee!

Have you heard our adoption testimony?

We adopted our two sons (currently ages 8 and 11) from Taiwan in 2008. We always felt we would like to adopt again and at that time, we thought we would adopt a little girl from Taiwan.

We felt God calling us toward adoption again in 2011. It seemed the doors had mostly closed for Taiwan. God called us to Africa and then, specifically, to Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Africa. We began the process in December 2012. In the process, we lost 2 different referrals of 2 little girls. In May of 2014, we were matched with 2 precious girls (ages 6 months and 4 1/2 at the time). They are absolutely precious. They are now legally ours. They have their court decrees. However, the country stopped issuing legal exit letters and while we continue to hear that they are going to be releasing over 1,200 cases, we have been unable to bring them to their forever home.

We are continually looking to raise money for the $950/month foster fees as well as medical needs and eventual travel. We have been in this process for nearly 18 months longer than we ever anticipated so finances are very tight. Yet we know, we will fight the battle as these little lives are so incredibly worth it!
