We're Adopting!

Romans 8:15

We are ready to begin our GREATEST adventure yet!


We are expanding our family by adopting a girl, aged 3-5, from Taiwan.

With God's healing and grace (I must be 3 years cancer free), we will be able to submit the necessary documents and home study to Taiwan after June 1, 2024.


We humbly share this page with you as a way to update our support system and provide you with information on how you can be a part of our child's story.

Nelson & Christina

Announcing our adoption of a little girl from Taiwan.



Prayer for
  • a swift and "easy" home study

  • the little girl God will match us with

  • the continued strengthening of our marriage

Your Name for a Welcome Home Quilt

To begin piecing and weaving our little girl's story with our community together, we will be making a quilt to welcome her to her new home. Anyone who donates to our agency fund will have their name embroidered on that quilt, wrapping her in the warmth and generosity of our community.

Words of Encouragement

Do you have experience with adoption or know someone who has? We welcome your wisdom, funny stories, and encouragement.


An adoption from Taiwan costs approximately $40,000. With our personal budgeting and saving we will be able to fund a good portion of this cost ourselves. Additionally, once our home study is complete we will be able to apply for grants.

However, the largest cost will be approximately $13,000 upon completion of our home study and the receipt of a referral.


I'll be breaking down the costs and what they are for in a future update.


We would appreciate any donation (tax deductible) to help with this portion of funding.

All donations go directly to Nightlight Christian Adoptions to be used to bring our child home.
