Chris and Jayna had their entire lives planned out: get married, buy a house, get a dog, and have a child.

Unfortunately, their plans quickly became derailed when they learned that they were unable to have children biologically.

Jayna, a NICU nurse, cared for children everyday and was constantly reminded of the challenge that her and her husband faced. However, what was a source of stress soon became a source of inspiration when Jayna learned that one of her patients, Turner, needed a home.

Church of the Resurrection, located in Leawood, Kansas, filmed the following video about their church family’s adoption story:

Through their various foster care ministries and foster/adopt parent support groups, Church of the Resurrection is a strong, local proponent of adoption.
