A Home for Durye

January 16, 2013






Today I get the honor to share an inspiring story with you of a family that I just adore. Ready? Here we go.

The Toth family is one of those families that just make you smile. I have known Andy since high school and met Erin shortly after they were married. They are full of love, joy, compassion, and their passion for life is contagious.

They have two absolutely adorable boys, Nahum {age 5} and Oliver {age 2}. They are a family chasing after the will of God without reservation. Their hearts desire is to go wherever the Lord may lead them and right now that path He has given them is leading them in the direction of adopting from Ethiopia. What an incredibly exciting and overwhelming journey to be on.

I’m not closely familiar with adopting, but I have several friends that have adopted and I know the process can be long, financially draining, stressful, exciting, emotional, etc. The Toth’s have been nothing short of joyful throughout this entire journey. They are such a huge encouragement to those around them considering adoption. They display courage, patience, and trust; 3 key things in the journey of adoption.

Things change, processes change, paperwork gets messy, dates get pushed forward, get pushed back, excitement rises only to be changed the next day with frustration, financial help seems hopeless; the list goes on. I have seen the ups and downs of the adoption process, but this family remains strong, remains focused, and remains faithful to the Lord’s will for their life. It’s such a blessing to follow this story.

Throughout this journey the Toth’s need our support.

Here’s how you can help:
Prayer {Continual prayer that God’s hand will be on their future family member(s), for God to prepare and protect their hearts, and to provide financing}

Financial Support {The average cost of an Ethiopian adoption is $25,000-$35,000}
