The endurance to relentlessly love and the selflessness to carry. Drew and Emily are weeks away from finalizing their adoption of their long awaited son, while recently bringing another little boy into the world. Their family story is filled with endurance and selfless love that represents the everlasting love of Christ!
Drew and Emily met when they were 9 and 10 years old. Emily’s dad led worship for their church and they both grew up as friends. While they were seniors in high school they started dating and got married after college graduation.
This July they will have been married for 8 years and marriage has taught both of them the necessity of selflessness. Marriage has given them the opportunity to truly love one another and to sacrificially be fully committed.
Not too long after being married in 2011 Emily and Drew met a precious little boy during on an over seas mission trip. After falling in love with him, they began to pursue him for adoption. After 6 years of relentlessly pursing this little boy and dealing with the adoption system, their precious adopted son is expected to be home soon.
As Drew and Emily continue to trust in the Lord’s timing, they have been blessed with another precious baby boy. The excitement of now having two children is a blessing Emily and Drew truly deserve.
They are thrilled to have a baby boy that is waiting to welcome home his big brother! Taking on the challenges of being new parents to two beautiful boys is something that Drew and Emily count as truly a blessing from the Lord. They plan to simply take it one day at a time and are beyond grateful to be given the opportunity to parent both of the sons the Lord has given them!
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
