Adoption Support

The Fincher Family

The Fincher Family

Almost ten years ago, we (Paul and Becca) weren’t certain about many things. We were newlyweds, new homeowners, and were both starting fairly new careers. We were excited about our new life together and the future was full of opportunities and dreams. However, one thing was certain…we wanted to be parents. But more specifically, we were both sure that God was calling us, at some point, to the gospel-reflecting ministry of adoption. After struggling with infertility for a few years, and not feeling the freedom during that time to pursue adoption, the Lord blessed us with our first child, Michael. He was, and is, a gift from God. In the time since our Michael was born, we’ve tried to conceive again, but the Lord has not seen fit for us to have another biological child yet. The biggest difference, however, is that we feel more sure than ever that God is calling us to adopt a child and He has given us a greater sense of peace in pursuing growing our family through adoption. In October we received the call that we’d been praying for; a birth mother had chosen our family for her baby. We are so excited about our adoption journey and can’t wait to welcome our new little one in January.

The Fincher family was supported by a matching grant.
