Clint & Laura
We are happy to introduce Clint and Laura with their beautiful children as February's Featured Family. Their three boys, Caleb, Micah, and Levi are "home grown," and they have a sweet Ethiopian princess, Maleah. Clint works as an engineer and Laura is involved with the music/worship department at their church and stays at home with their kids.
Maleah came home from Ethiopia in 2010. The experience of adopting her changed their lives.
We originally went into the adoption process for selfish reasons and quickly our focus and lives took a complete 180 as our eyes were opened to need, pain, suffering, hunger, and sickness.
Clint and Laura felt like their family was complete after that adoption and would continue to work for the better livelihood of those living in rural Ethiopia- for the restoration of families, and supporting those who do that work. However, in June 2013, they both felt a call to adopt again. It was not something they thought they'd ever do again! After talking it over with the kids, everyone was 100% on board!
They prayed, talked, budgeted, filled out paperwork, and now here they are! Paperwork is done and Clint, Laura and Fam are on the waiting list to bring home another little girl.
There is something powerful in having someone "match" you in the family and for a long list of other reasons, we choose to following God's leading and take this leap of faith.
