Our Hearts Stirred...Our Family is Growing in 2010

Young familyIn February 2007, we first fell in love with Africa when we joined four other couples in starting a school in Zambia. Our school educates 400 orphans and 150 widows daily. 

Through this experience, we have learned that the Lord can use all of us—RIGHT WHERE WE ALEADY ARE—to make a BIG difference in this world! Continuing the story for us, this means that our family of five is soon going to be six.

In July 2009 God stirred our hearts to grow our family—but instead of growing this one in my belly...we decided to grow this one in our hearts [through international adoption]. With 145,000,000 orphans in the world...for us, this just made perfect sense.

2010...a new year...will bring new and exciting things for our family. We are opening up our hands and saying, "Lord, our hearts, hands and home are yours-let Your will be done." Join us on our journey...and may your journey be one of following His heart with surrender, excitement and joy! Amazing things happen when you open your hands to Him!

Here is the inspiring video and snapshot from the life of the Youngs!


Andrea describes herself as "a stay-at-home mom, a photographer, and a Southern chic to the core." You can learn more about this inspiring family and their adoption journey at Babe of My Heart. You can also read more about their school in Zambia and join them in what God is doing in Zambia at
