When most families decide to adopt, their thoughts are consumed by the heart of their future child.
A heart in need of support and acceptance and encouragement and unconditional love. Especially in the face of what can sometimes feel like abandonment, confusion, heartbreak and brokenness.
What’s unique to our sweet friends the Kaun family is their heart not just for these precious children here in the United States in need of forever families … but for the beautiful birthmothers who, for a wide variety of really hard reasons, so selflessly give these sweet angels up for adoption.
Aaron and Holly Kaun care deeply about the orphan cause. As a youth pastor, Aaron has shared the power of adoption … as he has shared the power of OUR adoption as children of God.
But what’s amazing, what’s incredibly special, is this couple’s passion for birthmothers … the beautiful women who become overshadowed in every redemptive adoption story. The ones who fade into the background. The ones who walk away from a live birth … with only a hospital bracelet as evidence.
It is THESE WOMEN that the Kaun family desires to love on. To serve. To support. To stand behind. So that, as they make the most difficult decisions of their lives, THIS amazing couple can stand with them. Can pray for them. Can hold their hands as they uphold their hearts. And can look into their eyes and tell them that THEY, not just their children, are LOVED.
That THEY, not just the babies they offer for adoption, are PRICELESS.
That THEY, not just their fruits, are BEAUTIFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE.
And that their decision to offer their child a life they feel they can’t provide — THAT decision is not taken lightly.
Not by legal staff.
Not by this very diligent and intentional family.
This precious family — their hearts for not just orphans but for those who would so selflessly make these children available for adoption is beyond priceless.
They and their two young boys truly reflect the beautiful, overwhelmingly loving, exceedingly compassionate heart of God.
And they remind me why EVERY adoption — not just the adoption of children with medical needs or those living in orphanages or those about to age out of international adoption systems or those living in less than ideal conditions across oceans in China — is PRECIOUS.
Want to support this beautiful family as they step out in faith with a desire to love not just a new child but a new FAMILY?
