I am so excited to share that Love is Waiting will be joining forces with The Orphan Care Network! We were first introduced to the organization when Randy asked my husband Aaron if he'd be interested in playing for an event called Foster the Story back in November. It was an opportunity for Aaron to share songs inspired by our adoption process and also share stories about our family.
After playing the event, Aaron felt a tug and a growing interest in the work that this organization was doing. He texted Randy ALL the time, excited about new ideas! He wanted to be a part of it. Now, here we are, just 6 months later and Aaron is entering into his second month on staff, full time at The Orphan Care Network! He left his worship leader position at a church in Kingwood to head up the "Artistry + Advocacy" program at TOCN. I'm so proud of the way he has fearlessly jumped into this new role. It's obvious that he is right where he needs to be. He's SO passionate about this work and he is having a blast doing it!
...So where does Love is Waiting come into play?? Well, we knew pretty quickly that some sort of partnership made sense! We've spent some time talking about what it will look like. It will take some time to work out all the details, but we are hopeful that the changes will provide
better fundraising experiences for families
a larger audience for sharing stories
better resources and connections for adoption
I will definitely keep you posted as things begin to transition over. In the mean time, head on over to orphancarenetwork.org and check it out. Also, we are currently fundraising Aaron's salary and if you are interested in supporting our family, it's easy to make a tax-deductible, recurring gift OR one time gift here...
