Ethan & Sarah

Both of us have been touched by adoption in our extended families, so we planned to adopt before we even married. After having three children relatively early in our marriage we knew that we wanted to add to our family through adoption. We first looked into foster-adoption and completed our home study through our county, but nothing panned out in that direction. We applied for a grant from Sacred Selections knowing that we would never be able to afford the…

Jeremy & Sharon

We tried to adopt domestically and knew there was a strong need for adoptive families for AA and bi-racial children. Often times the agencies ran out of families to present to these Birth Mothers. However, time after time we were told that the birth mother wanted someone without children. We eventually decided to adopt internationally and found that Ethiopia had a strong need for adoptive families as well. Once our paperwork was completed (which took about 3 months) we waited…

Scott & Sarah

We know that God’s hand was with us during our entire adoption process. After being unable to conceive a second child we knew that adoption was what we were being called to do. We didn’t want to go through lengthy and expensive fertility treatments when so many children are in need of loving Christian homes. Unfortunately, at first, we felt that adoption was cost prohibitive for us. Being a family with one income (Sarah is a stay-at-home mom) we didn’t…

Jonathan & Trisha

Since the time I was a little girl I have longed to have a family. All my life when someone asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer was always that I wanted to be a Mama. My Mama loved being a Mama and made it seem like the best “job” in the world. She and my Daddy had seven biological children before becoming Foster Parents and adopting four more. Mothering is in my blood! Jonathan…

Josh & Emily

We are a Sacred Selections family times three! God blessed us six years ago when we first learned about the mission of Sacred Selections. We were just starting the adoption process and were not at all sure how we would afford to adopt a child. Through a friend, we got in contact with David and Dana Carrozza. Dana talked us through our options, shared her experiences in helping others and prayed with us. Soon we were awarded a grant from…

Philip & Jennifer

Sacred Selections has changed our life by making us a family. Jennifer and I were a couple and now we are family with Alex.  Alexander John Bowman was born on July 30th 2009 and our life changed so much for the better. He brings joy to us everyday.  He has been a blessing from God, not just for us, but for his grandparents as well. We love Alex more than we can describe in words, and we owe all that…

Jason & Stephanie

It’s a classic story really, boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl get married and dream of a future with a big family and lots of kids!  But girl has issues and they find out that she may never be able to have a baby.  So they pray and cry and pray and cry….and years go by.  Finally one day their prayers are answered and they are able to adopt a beautiful teenie tiny 3…

Joshua & Erin

Sacred Selections played a huge part in our adoption story. As Christians, we know what God did to adopt us – He planned our adoption from before time, worked an adoption plan throughout history and then sacrificed His only begotten Son so that we could be His children. God fervently wants to grow His family and so do we. We have always felt that being parents was a vital role that God had for us and that was our dream…

Ben & Jennifer

As a young married couple, the costs of adoption were daunting to Ben and Jennifer Tarmann.  Even after making drastic changes in their lives to save money, the expected costs of $20,000 were simply not within reach.  With a grant from Sacred Selections, Ben and Jennifer were able to adopt their precious Joselyn in 2009.  They are so thankful for the overwhelming generosity of Christians who donated to Sacred Selections. Now, Joselyn is 3 1/2.  She is a fantastically happy…

Daniel & Allison

A few years into our marriage, our thoughts turned to having children.  We always planned to adopt, but thought to have biological children, too.  After multiple miscarriages, we knew God had different plans for us.  First He blessed us with our sweet Faye, whom we adopted as a baby.  A few years later, we wanted to adopt again, but fertility treatments and our first adoption had take a toll.  Bringing home another baby was great financial concern for us.  Then…
