Alvin and Carmi share a beautiful story of adoption. Heartbreaking miscarriages and struggles with failed pregnancies for nine years taught them to trust and depend on God for their longings and desires to be parents. Eventually, God blessed Alvin and Carmi with two children through adoption, a daughter and a son. Their experience as adoptive parents brought them immeasurable joy, and they learned first-hand what it means when God adopts us into his family because of Jesus Christ.

Through their story as adoptive parents, they aim to inspire others to consider adoption, not only as a means of building a family but also as a way to experience the profound love and fulfillment that comes from imitating the heart of Christ.

Alvin and Carmi have been married for 17 years and they are partners is business, ministry, and discipling other couples.
