Video Revealed on Will Perry's Forever Day~ {National Adoption Month & Orphan Sunday Nov 8}

This day four years ago we pulled our son Will Perry into our arms forever

and he has been one of the greatest gifts in our family.
LOOK at the difference LOVE makes in a chosen child~


As God called us to adopt CallaAnne in the last months, He also pressed on Scott's heart we should have a film made sharing God's adoption story through our family.

Nicole Cole of 314 Productions graciously spent the day with us and captured the story.

Please watch, share, pray, and consider what God is calling your family to concerning the 100 million orphans in the world today.


James 1:27 says, "Take care of the orphans and widows in their affliction." 

We would ask you what that looks like for your family because it is not IF you have been called... you HAVE been called to Take Care.

Will you adopt?
Will you foster?
Will you pray for the waiting children or unadoptable ones?
Will sponsor a child?
Will you support a family on the journey to another child?

SO many ways God allows to fulfill the calling He places on us in this scripture. What will you do?

If you feel led to support our family in adopting CallaAnne, you can go to Project Love One HERE and click on the dropdown menu to choose Ankerich Family. You can give in $20 increments and every donation goes straight to our adoption agency for fees due. Your donation is also tax deductible as well. 

We also have a tshirt fundraiser coming and they will be sold from this website as well. Design is in the final edits. SO excited!!! It will so awesome to see shirts everywhere representing LOVE Makes a Family: Psalms 68:6~ "He sets the lonely in families."

People sometimes say, "You can't save them all. And that's right but we can save this one." And for that one it is a life of Forever magnitude.

Scott and I often say This is NOT our story, it is God's story being written through our family and WHAT if we had missed it just because we couldn't SEE the path.

What if we had missed the Joy of a quiver full? (Psalm 127: 3-5)
What if we had missed the Blessing of love? (Matt 19:14)
What if we had missed the Gifts of adoption? (James 1:17)
What if we had missed the Promise of family? (Psalm 68:6)
What if we had missed the Life of Eternity proportions? (John 17:16)

SO thankful we said YES to a little girl in Chongqing, China on January 27, 2006 which led us to a life immeasurably more than we could have ever imagined!!!

Ephesians 3:14-21

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,  from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.


 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think,according to the power at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

  1. Oh you guys - such a beautiful video from a beautiful family! So well spoken! We are just coming out of that haze of 12 weeks home from China....where even four weeks ago we were saying "we can never do this again"....to now knowing we will be obedient to how ever the Lord calls us. What an impossibly beautiful journey, huh? Only with God who strengthens us. Praise be to Him!
