Kolby and Katie Stewart have 6 beautiful children and are excited to add 3 more from Eastern Europe. It has always been on Katie's heart to adopt and together they felt the call 2.5 years ago. Though they faced many closed doors, God opened the right window at the right time. They hosted two sisters over the summer and fell in love with the girls; they fit perfectly into their family. While they were here, they were notified that the girls had a little brother who was also available for adoption. "What a surprise! God's hand is visible in every step of our adoption journey. His blessed assurance brings so much hope and joy. The verse that has encouraged us throughout this time is Deuteronomy 31:8 'The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged'."
