The Sturgeon Family

The Sturgeon Family

Katie and Alex Sturgeon are public school teachers, Highland Tribe members, YoungLifers, and parents to Parker (3) and Fletcher (1). Alex and I (Katie) met on New Year’s Day 2012 and Alex would say he knew I was the one when he saw me poorly attempt to backwards skate that evening. Fast forward a year and some months and we were married at the dear ages of 21 and 22. Even then, adoption was part of our conversations, plans, and prayers. We were surprised with the pregnancy of our first son just seven months into marriage. After Parker’s arrival, we began to seriously discuss adoption and how we would like our family to look. We heard clearly God’s call to adopt but hadn’t heard when. We emailed a few agencies for information but ultimately decided to wait until we heard more from the Lord. While waiting, we lost a sweet baby through miscarriage and then welcomed our second son, Fletcher. Fletch was 6 months old when we felt God saying, “NOW!” We prayerfully began pursuing a domestic adoption through a faith-based agency. We are overwhelmed with JOY and GRATITUDE to be pursuing our littlest love with the support of Clement Arts.

The Owens Family

The Owens Family

We are Steve, Bethany, Payton, Parker and Porter Owens. God called us to adopt in 2014. On July 20, 2015 we met our sweet son in China. We’ve had the privilege of seeing God transform his orphan heart into one of a beloved son! While in China, Steve felt the Lord telling him we would one day be back for a daughter. Several months later I (Bethany) had a dream of a little girl running around our house playing with our kids. God whispered the name Piper into my heart. We started the adoption process in May for our daughter from China! We have not seen her face yet, but we have faith that God has known her before the beginning!
