Today I have a personal request. My friends, Chris (Naval Academy classmate) and Erin Wallace, have sought the Lord for a long time and decided to adopt a child from the Democratic Republic of Congo. What started out as a loving journey of conviction has been deepened by what seems to be an endless amount of suffering and injustice. While they have met all requirements and the paperwork for their daughter’s adoption is officially complete, their daughter has not yet received exit papers which allows her to leave her home country. As a result, Erin spent several months in the DRC with their youngest daughter Lainey, while her husband, Chris, remained state side with their two older children. Several events has led the family to bring the other children to the DRC with Erin and little Lainey. As a result, Erin are raising the three children in the Congo while Chris continues to serve our country as a Navy Officer and advocate for his family. They are already working with the Embassy, maintain their trust in God, and desire to reconnect their entire family at soon as their government allows.
Please check out the video below to hear their story and sign the petition to bring them all home:
