Sean & Kelsey Knodel

July 22, 2023 | West Fargo, ND

Kelsey and Sean have been married for close to 11 years. After years of struggling with infertility, Sean felt God tapping on his shoulder that he was called to adopt. Together they have one daughter named Navy who they adopted out of Florida in 2020. They hope to grow their family even more through the incredible gift of adoption soon. Adoption can be extremely expensive, Sean and Kelsey are determined to not allow this to derail their adoption plans and ask that you join alongside them in helping grow their family.

Domestic Adoption

Orphan | United States

We aren't currently matched with an expecting mother but are currently seeing adoption situations and presenting our profile. We are hopeful and continue to pray that we are matched soon. The expected cost of adoption we are currently seeing is anywhere from $34,000 to roughly $53,000.

Widow | North Dakota

Samantha lost her husband Cody just over eight months ago. She is a full time Army National Guard Soldier and Mother to two beautiful children who are 5 years and 7 months old. Today, her home is in need of several indoor and outdoor tasks that are difficult for anyone to do with two young children in a home. We feel honored to be able to bless her family through this service project. We are also so excited to serve a local veteran who has made it her mission to serve her country.

A Different Kind of Fundraiser

A team of volunteers is completing a service project of fixing up a widow's home. We are raising sponsorship for our day of service. The funds raised will help an orphan to become adopted into a forever family. Will you sponsor us?
